    I forgot! I also ground two stumps out of the front yard. both had invasive surface roots I had to grind also.

    Very rewarding!

    This weekend was catch up time. I FINALLY got around to pulling the downed trees out of the woods that dropped across my driveway during the hurricane in August. I'm going to mill the poplar logs into 1x6's with my chainsaw mill and use it for interior siding in my shed.

    I also moved my latest Jeep project to the back part of my property. It was going to be a quick and dirty rebuild until the engine shop told me that practically everything in the "recently rebuilt" engine needed to be replaced. So much for trusting a sellers word!

    I got about 4 hours today. I moved some tree lenght pine logs that Jonnyc1999 cut down for me after my accident in Nov. 11. I also moved some more of my bucked logs to my new cutting location/setup. I also started buolding 3 different burn piles. Then most of the time I played with the ratchet rake, bucket, and grapple (I switched them around a few times) as I'm trying to make the NEXT pasture area ready. I basically was "sweeping" the debris with the RR, and then I tried using the bucket to get rid of the piles and it wirked OK, but I switched back to the grapple and largely due to the large percentage of fibrous wood in these piles, the grapple is actually superior to the bucket in hauling this "dirt" 9 times out of 10. the 10th was a bumpy trip and too much fell out an that load was a waste.

    I also waded into the serious slash pile and would back drag with the teeth of the grapple a couple feet and grab whatever I could and haul it off to the burn pile.

    I also used the grapple to pop out the nasty welded chain mailbox post, and put in a new pretty post and XL Mailbox that I built.

    It was a good day of Birthday seat time (I took the day off from work).

    Be well all!

    Looks like you have been having fun and getting a lot done too David. Looks like it will rain here off and on for another week, so not much tractoring gonna happen here.

    David,

    I notice you didn't include the time you spent doing your 50 hour service, does that mean what I think it does?

    James,

    I also ground 3 stumps in the pasture area that were bouncing me around as I was using the RR...

    It started raining as I got to the coffee pot this morning. 90% chance of T-storms today, cool and raining all weekend, then May looks like rain every day next week.

    Glad I tractored yesterday...

    Seems we might be in the same boat sir.
