I’ve been working my body pretty good lately getting lots of exercise working on the forest trails. So today, I decided to do something a bit different to change things up a bit and give my body a rest.
I got my new little chainsaw out and gassed and oiled it up and jumped on the quad runner and rode on up to where I was working on the trail, to this spot.
My goal today was to cut some fallen trees off the old animal trail I’m working on. That’s a lot easier than running the Pulaski, digging, and cutting tree roots.
Starting at the top
I walked up the trail as I wanted to start cutting things at the top and work my way down, cutting as I go.
This was the first one I cut, a small one that had rotted and fallen down over the trail.
Then I moved to this little bigger one and got that one cleared off the trail.
A big one
This larger one was leaning over the trail to the right and was a little large for that small saw. I thought about waiting until I got my big saw, but what the heck, I have this one, so I started on it. The saw was too small but I cut away and it was slow, but eventually the tree fell down the hill
I thought the tree was rotten when I started but it just looked like it was and was actually real hard old dead wood. The big saw would have cut it a lot faster and easier.
I needed a good break after that one so I sat in the leaves and took it easy and enjoyed the quiet forest for awhile.
Back to it
Eventually I got up and got the saw running again and cleared some small trees off the trail that goes through here.
The last one
I worked my way down the trail to this spot. I decided to cut the smaller one and wait on the larger one until I got the big saw.
Headed for home
I made my way back to my quad runner and was riding down this road when I saw this log partly on the road so I cut it out of the way.
I was riding down this trail and thought I had a clear path to home,………….But.
I ran into these small dead downed trees, so stopped to work on them.
I was getting tired and my back was starting to complain, but I got them cutup and barely got them off the road.
Once the trees were all cleared I could proceed.
I went down this road and it was clear all the way home.
