Not for Noble. Its rumored he cut down limbed and bucked that log with that saw before breakfast one day, just after milking the stoopid cows.

You guys have it all wrong.  They ain't gonna saw no boards from that log.  They are going to demonstrate the new Peter-lathe-erson attatchment for oversized turning stock.  Burlkraft is going to chuck that bigboy up and turn a lamp out of it.

Boy that should be a blast.  How much cribbing are you going to need under your mill  ???

I'll send Zac that way to help move them slabs. ;)

Ahh, if he was picking you, Jeff up it was kinda a toss up which way was shorter.

5 hours 13 minutes for me.  About 4 1/2 hours if I take the cycle and avoid the radar.  Taking the ferry from Muskegon to Milwaukee would be shorter, but about $80, and surely not as much fun.  If it would ever quit snowing! 

Have to check with the Domestic Goddess to clear the way....

John, ya need to add at least an hour to that time if ya are going down and around, maybe more. That time is only good if you head through in the dead of night, trust me on this. ;)

Any chance the slabber could be updated to take my 72" bar ??? ;D

Any camping nearby?  Definetly not taking the cycle.  We bought a camper last year and have had it out once so far.  I've been given the "that sounds like fun" go ahead to look into coming over and camping out.  I have a feeling the heater will be getting a thorough workout! 

Will be coming round the bottom from Mid W MI.  We have a spare seat, and room in the truck bed for gear, is someone wants to ride along and camp out there.  Your on your own once we get there.  I sing in the car too, but that shouldnt stop ya!

There's camping around...If you search the Wi. DNR site there should be a list of parks. I know there is one around the village of McFarland....Not too far from the site. The site is on the east side of Madison, near the Interstate...if that helps  ::) ::) ::)

I'm not much of a camper.....
