  • I'm a lumberjack and I'm OK!

    If anyone's been wondering why I've been a bit quiet for the past few days (or even noticed) the reason is that I've been on a chainsaw proficiency and tree felling course. It's punishing hard work and it's really driven home how unfit I am but it's been tons of fun and I've learned loads in just four days. I can strip and rebuild a saw, keep the chain sharp and fell small trees with a variety of cuts depending on the situation and then sned them (remove the branches.)

    Here's me with my first kill



    I've got one day left on the course to do awkward cuts on leaning trees and practice getting them unstuck when they get tangled up in other trees.

    Tiiiimmmmbeeeeeerrrrrrrr! (apparently you really do have to shout that.)

          The real question is if you love to wear womens clothing and hang about in bars.

          Looks like fun!

                KD will be disappointed at the distinct lack of plaid. :P

                I knew a tree surgeon once... he chainsawed trough his leg. Well, only most of the way through.

                    I did go clad in my padded plaid "lumberjack shirt" but it was so hot I was forced to take it off. Also the amount of chain oil and pine resin you get covered in, I love my shirt too much for that.

                    My arms are just one big ache. I can barely type let alone hold a paint brush but I certainly feel fitter than I did at the start of the week. Tree felling kicks arse!


                    Now to tuck into my buttered scones...
