Smarter than the Timber

Here is a little picture of our timber effort. In one day we made three trips to the farms and two trips to the mill. We loaded, and unloaded, seven logs. The process was one of more thought than brawn. The logs were too heavy to lift by hand  hough we were able to roll them around the yard and create leverage points. We maneuvered the logs around stumps and up onto other logs in an effort to raise one end over the truck's tailgate. Obviously, it worked. We then pealed the logs of their bark so they would slide on their smooth rounded inner surface when wetted. The process took a while but ultimately we were able to take large logs to the mill.  A special thanks goes out to Donnelly's grandparents, with out that truck we could not have done it.
