Nope. Always had chainsaws. I've taken out small trees, but big ones next to the house, no.

Oh, yes, we had a powered buz saw. I hated that thing! Note all of the safety shields -

I had the easy job, sitting on the tractor and pushing in on the clutch for the PTO when something went wrong (like the belt slipping off or a kickback).

A kickback usually threw the belt off and if we were lucky, no one got hit with the belt -

And yes, it was cold and usually snowing, because we cut wood in the winter -

I hate days like that, it is why I have a hard time taking extended vacations.

I was up all night typing since I wasn't feeling well, so I am all fuzzy today from lack of sleep.

Reminds me of several years back when we decided to go up and vacation somewhere in Western Canada. We had a difficult time finding a motel room. The whole area looked like it was over run by Indians.

Finally, we found a room and I ask the man at the desk what the heck was going on - He said it was "long weekend" AND there was a big First Nations pow wow going on in the area.

Lesson learned there.

Lol. That new hybrid Toyota was working on. It's another Venza. You know, the car specifically marketed at old people, who then went and bought a scion xb, which was marketed at young people.
