It's Getting to be Time Again
One of my local friends showed up this evening as I was getting everything ready for woodcutting tomorrow and dropped of a couple boxes of once fired .308 brass.
I just looked at him like I was stunned. I was like "Dude are you seriously giving me 3 boxes of .308 brass?"
Can't beat that with a stick. I offered to teach him how to reload but he wasn't too interested. I am not going to look at a gift of re-loadable brass sideways either. It would be nice if more locals started doing that :)
Anyway it's getting to be almost time to switch the shop around from honey and bee production to firearm and reloading production. I figure I have one more honey pull to make this next week and then I am done and going to leave the rest of September and October harvest for the bee's Winter stores.
I dug the trailer out from behind the barn, checked all the light connections and got it hooked up for tomorrows fire wood run. Then my Dad showed up and we loaded the log splitter up on his trailer so we can just split it on the spot rather than hauling all those large sections out by hand.
We plan on making an early start of it and filling both trucks and the trailer tomorrow so we don't have to make another trip. I will try and remember the camera to take some on the job pics with as well. We can pull in fairly close to the downed trunks but there is an embankment and ditch that the sections need carried over so splitting it on the scene will make life much easier. Plus it is going to have to be split anyway.
It's about a 40 mile trip down to get these trees but the underbrush is still so thick around here it is worth it. Not to mention they are already down which helps time-wise a bit as well.
They keep saying it's going to be another bad Winter so every little bit helps.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!
