I’ll share a little near miss on this one...

 

So I had to fell one of the butts, the Ranger was a good way away, parked under à Douglas so the dog could stay cool.

 

I eyed it up and considered moving the truck, but thought it’d be fine.

 

What I hadn’t considered was the effect the trunk placed on the ground to act as a shock absorber/thing to keep it off the ground for ease of bucking, would be.

 

The sopping wet poplar trunk (wet with sap you understand) hit the other piece and sheets of bark fell off leaving bare, slippy wood, this frictionless surface meant the trunk slid straight towards the truck, with us powerless to stop it.

 

You can see how close from the photos.

 

The other photo shows how far it travelled from the stump (flat ground btw)

Perfectly judged Mick!

 

You know the craic though.

 

If you ever look at something and consider moving it, it means that the right thing to do is move it.

 

Except those whirlygig washing line things.

They never get broken, at all.

Lovely early morning call out to clear this road, thankfully the bandit winch made it a lot easier!

Spending the whole week at one of the amazon depots. Lots of security to get on site but it's an incredible process to see how they sort all the parcels. A real military operation goi g on inside. IMG_20190722_125424_204.jpegIMG_20190722_131239.jpegIMG_20190722_105416.jpeg
