I spent the day in the woods pretending to be a lumberjack
I volunteered to give Loyal a hand today, and a jolly cold day it turned out too. Loyal felled a few trees, they were cut into logs and we dragged them then out of the way with the tractor and chains. This went on until Loyal ran over a small sapling, which got caught up in the tractor, cutting the tractor’s hydraulic hose and damaging the radiator.
It was too early to stop so we went on a quick hike around the property, discovering an illicit deer stand while we were at it. All in all, it was a good, but cold day.
Postscript: Unfortunately the radiator was beyond repair which meant that our day’s work probably just about paid for the tractor to be fixed.Copyright © 2011 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
