When we were about 2 thirds through the log, we took a short break for a photo op and got a few people to climb in da log. We did have as many as 30 folks there at one time, and I know we could have fit 50 or more on the log at this point as we only had 2 rows and could have fit 4, but this is what we got for that moment in time.  :)   Looks like the young feller manning my camera was not our main focus. There should be more photos of this out there on other cameras. :)

Well after another delema with the delta airlines I made it to bangor. (via Portland then a 2 hour taxi ride)
I even fond a converter so now I can charge all my electrical equipment and keep in touch with you all.
Photos are looking good there people, I have never seen so many cameras in one spot! That poor kid that had about 6 hanging of him for a while there.
Yep, Steves "recap"photo. You look quite relaxed there ;D
Nice looking grain there Jeff, it is real cold and wet up here as well in maine.
Thanks to all you FF guys out there who made my stay in WI enjoyable and memorable, espically Steve, Jeff, Greg, "Thee Bob", and Kent.

Man o man I sure did miss a great time. I'm glad it turned out to be such a greta success for all involved. I'm especially glad no one got hurt. I was concerned the log would get top heavy and roll over on someone! :D ;D

Not to worry, we had that covered.  :) Corley5 and Beenthere made and installed several chucks to prevent the log from moving. :)  I've been awhile getting to posting these photos as I was sure Greg needed some time to forget about running a Stihl before I reminded him again.  :D

Yep. Y'all thought of everything. The only good news left is to post that because of the demonstration, Peterson sold a mill. I plan to take care of that myself hopefully; All I need is for Texas Ranger to find us a BFTR (Big Fat Texas Redwood) somewhere's in Tejas so's I can tell the missus we have to buy a swingmill from those brilliant Kiwi's across da pond.

In fact, for the first time since I started watching the Amerca's Cup over 20 years ago, i am pulling for Emirates Team New Zealand (to come in second behind behind BMW Oracle Racing of course)! ;)

I've got ta think that by now Greg OWNS a 660 with a 42" bar....He was kinda speechless after that performance mine gave him.... ;D ;D ;D  That would be speechless in a "Oh man....I gotta get me one 'o these...!!"  Kinda way.... :D :D :D

Ya mean Corley5 didn't like this big Stihl saw and bar?  ;D ;D
 I think he maybee was dreamin this log was standin on end, and he was dropping all 270 + feet of it.  :)
When the right chain finally arrived for this big saw, things started happenin pretty fast then. A few minutes and the frame was set up, and the saw rig mounted on the tracks. Each piece of the frame easily carried or handled by one person. Having Chris there to point out the right way to do things, was great and perfected the demonstration.

Note the limb stub just to the left and above Corley5's head. Indication this was a log further up in the tree, like 50' or more.

Nice saws Steve but I still wouldn't buy one  ;D  Falling that tree woulda been quite rush.  I wouldn't have wanted the job of climbing up and topping it just cutting it off at the stump  ;D :)

What is wrong with this picture? ???





Steve has sleeves in his shirt. Must be and picture fraud or may be Burlkraft fraud.

Look like it was a great time and GREAT proof that a PETERSON can do anything.
It was such a disappointment that Part Timer and I could not make it up. I know that he would have much rather be inhaling saw dust then sitting in a hotel in Canada but the pictures and the stories are the next best thing. I canít what to here the tall tails I mean story at the Hog Roast.
