Let me start by saying that I was having a really good day. I had to replace my pickup and winch for hauling logs. My old pickup and winch however were undersized for what I was doing. I stumbled on to this pickup
It’s ugly but the engine was completely overhauled and a heavy duty transmission had been put in it. It runs great and doesn’t even notice that I have a load. I also invested in a much better winch with log tongs. This was a huge improvement.
I got this load on in record time (beetle kill pine)
At this point in time, I am feeling bullet proof. I tied down the load and moved it to a safe distance so I could drop some more logs and cut them up for the next load. (Always move vehicles before cutting trees). After dropping 3 more trees, I was trimming branches and cutting them to length. I slipped on some pine needles and fell over backwards on top of a log with a branch stub sticking up. This hurt really bad.
Strictly superficial and I will be fine. But it really spoiled my afternoon. Of course if it had been a little higher it would have been a 911 call. :-)
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for reading.
