I got an even 1" of rain early this morning. It was much needed, the only other rain I've had this month was 0.41" on the 15th. Still ahead of the average for the year, by quite a bit. If it doesn't rain another drop this year we'll still finish the year about 10"-15" above normal, but it's been dry here since  September.

I've got a Stihl 290 that I bought in 2008 right after the tornado hit us. No telling how many hours it's got on it. I use it, my son and SIL also use it. It still cranks and runs great. It's on it's 3 bar  and I have no idea how many chains it's worn out. Up until a couple of years ago I heated my shop with wood and used it a lot. Now that I don't cut firewood anymore I only keep it around for big jobs, like  storm damage or cutting big stuff. Last year I bought a 14" Ryobi, 40 volt battery powered chainsaw. It's what I grab 90% of the time now. If I'm heading to the lease and just want a saw along in case of a log blocked road or such, it's what I take. I've got a hunting buddy that has a Milwaukee 14" that uses his 18 volt drill batteries, that thing is a beast, I put it right up there with any gas powered saw of the same size I've ever run. I wanted one, but then I priced it. I don't use one enough to justify the $$$. I'm well pleased with my Ryobi, it's not in the class with the Milwaukee, but it cost 1/3 what it did and I already had batteries for it. Unless we get hit by another bad storm, I don't know if I'll ever crank my gas powered saw again. I can cut wood for camp, clear shooting lanes and roads with the electric just fine. I told my son to just keep my Stihl at his house and I'll holler if I need it. It's the same with weed eaters, I gave him my gas powered Stihl weed eater this year after I got a good 18 volt electric, it's cuts just as good and there's no cranking or gas to mess with.

Poland. Only a hundred bucks at TS around christmas time.  When you get a tree on it, it doesn't hurt as bad to buy another next year.

Been trying to figure out how to make this site work and wondering if. You guys would be interested in having your own page so to speak like Facebook . Each member that request it could have a section like my Scatterlandsfarms or Crisswell Blacksmithing where you could post your own adventures in the outdoors   We have a unlimited server so space is no issue . You can pick your own board name , then add topics just like you do on Facebook . Your on page with other open forums like we have now . I'm trying to think outside the box to make this place be successful .
