I hope everyone out in ODSS land is doing well and all are just busy with their lives. Perhaps one day all will be normal (whatever that is) and we can get back to some Stovebolt Live Action! Then again, it is the end of the truckin season maybe that is why not much going on. I still need to plan a clutch removal and replacement weekend on the one ton but currently working on house projects so that is on hold.

Take care,

It’s firewood cutting season and working on the 57 one ton.
Put the mower away and got the splitter out.
Leaves are in full color and we are doing some site seeing this week also.

Working on my 79 AMX, still. Started 18 months ago and it’s going to be painted this month. Should be able to get it back together during the colder months and ready for the spring. Then back to the 41. That’s the plan anyway.

Don, I had a great oak firewood source a couple of years ago but that went dry. I have resorted to buying some already split wood the past coupled of winters to add to scavenging some. I wont be buying much anymore. Prices start at $240 a cord for "mixed" hardwoods and go as high as 350.00 per! For that much, ya might as well pay the power company.
Alvin, I agree but like I said, been too quiet. I fiddled with the '46 for a bit last night but nothing too to crazy. The weather is supposed to be a little warmer this weekend so hopefully I can go for a ride.

Good for you Victor, sounds like you are making progress. A whole lot more than me!

Billy, Looks like I need to start selling firewood in your area! Of course the transportation fees would put me at zero again. I’ve got more oak firewood than I could ever cut. Bring a truck next year and we’ll get you ready for winter for the cost of chainsaw gas and oil.

Take care,
George

Wow, that is a hefty price. I think around here it’s about $125 a cord of split hardwood. About $70 for a good pickup load and $50 if you haul it.
We had some land logged off of white oak a few years ago and we let several friends cut all the tops they wanted. Hardly put a dent in the tops.
I have a good cord of seasoned oak ready to mix in with the green oak I’m cutting now for this winter.
Going to start splitting a trailer load today.

I’ll give you the same deal as George, only I’ll have a cooler nearby for breaks.
Don

The daylight change does put a dent in my wanting to do anything but lay on the couch when I get home from work. But I did get my Vermont tags in the mail today, so at least I can be legal for a bit!
