We be done!! Finally. We have about 16 chords and almost 1 full chord of cedar - gold as far as I am concerned - that is my kindling. There is still some logs that was taken down by Ontario Hydro on our property that we will split and I think there should be at least one full chord there so we are all set for the next 1 1/2 winters I think. All thanks to lumberjacks extraordinaire - Chris and Egon - without them we could not have done it in the time we did. It took 2 1/2 days to take down the trees, cut them to size, transport them to the other property and 3 days to split it all. Not bad for four people, all over 50! And Chris - what a girl. Most of those logs were heavy. We had to lift them from where they were cut, put them in the small trailer, ride the 4 wheeler and trailer to the big brown trailer, lift them from the small trailer into the big brown trailer, then when the brown trailer was full, drive the truck with the big trailer over to the other property and lift the logs from the brown trailer into the pile. Lots o'work. And we weren't that sore!! GIRLS RULE!! And lets not forget Egon and his magic chainsaw. You have to watch your legs with him around. He was in his glory. I lost a Loonie to him because he called where the tree would land. And it did. He never missed!! With help like that around, no wonder it only took 2 1/2 days . They are welcome back next year too.
Time to relax. I have tons of stuff to do before the next round of tourists arrive on Thursday, Sunday and Monday.
Let Tourist Season Begin....
See ya By
