« Part 3: Colors of the kill Part 4 of Exploits collecting "free" wood series Part 5: This will leave a bruise »

First I want to show that I stood the trees back up properly

I was under the delusion that I could hold 10-12 logs. After killing my winch and seeing the trailer squat with these I decided to take half at a time.

Good color though. Running late. But getting them home.

Thanks for looking

Looks like a good load of wood, if you could squeeze the moisture out you could probably take all of them.
Now you have something to do tomorrow, nothing like having job security.

Wow Monte, that’s a big project. It will be satisfying when you can use the wood in some of your builds!

Monte, good to see the snow is melted and you can get some wood for your winter projects. I would love to see some action pictures of your sawmill in action.

As with most of the LJs, I work alone. It’s my exercise program.

Sorry about the winch but it’s always good to know just how much they can take (so you won’t kill the next one).

That does look like a load to me. My tires are usually the weak link when I overload trailers (and no fun jacking that up and changing tires on the side of the road). By blowouts usually happen 2 at a time and who carries 2 spares?

Glad you got those trees stood back up!

Good to see that load on the truck. Now comes the anticipation to see what they look like inside.
