(slightly delayed) Intro from West Central Missouri
« on: January 11, 2017, 05:47:20 pm »
Hi yíall.  Iíve been a long time reader, short time poster.  Very happy to have such a resource as the FF.  Iíve learned a lot from the people and conversations here.

Iím a part time sawyer wanna be, part time farmer, and have a more than FT day job, 4H robotics volunteer, husband, and father to four kids.  Iíve got 150 acres of woodland plus access to another 15 nearby basically for free.  5th generation on the land, 1st with a mill (lots of butcher, farmers, and carpenters up the line).  My mill is a small but mighty Lucas 6-13.  Support equipment is easier as we already had a few tractors, skid steer, and a backhoe (that needs some minor work).  7 chainsaws (almost enough).  Was hoping to build a solar kiln this spring, but the day job workload will probably be pushing it back.  My plan is to sell lumber retail and products made from lumber retail/wholesale/consignment.  Iíve got a decent woodshop (homemade CNC router, antique Epilog laser that is temperamental, Woodmaster 718, etc.).  Still need a few pieces and a better building (to get sawdust away from the farm shop).  If I could just get time away from the day job occasionally.   :)  The mill and woodshop definitely gets short shrift, unfortunately. 

We live pretty simply and are close to being debt free.  Iím proud of both and looking forward to more of the adventure.

Welcome Ted.  I lived a little ways south of Sedalia on M highway for a few years in the early 80's.  Had a few acres of hills and forest.  Enjoyed living on the edge of the Ozarks.

Larry, how far out?  We're 6 miles on M then a bit more than a mile on Lone Star (South from the old missile silo).  The 40 Chevy is still sitting in that field too, but the current owners did flip it right side up a couple years ago.  We know a lot of the people out here.  If we didn't know you, there's a good chance we knew your neighbors. 

Huck, if I'd known you were that close I'd have hollered out the back door instead of posting here.   ;D

Welcome! You know I am not far from you also. South of Warsaw. Huck I can't be far from you at all. I am getting a get-together going in Warsaw March 11. There is a post about it in the general board.

I owned the "A" frame home on McGee road.  Not far from you.  Didn't seem that long ago, but when I do my subtraction, may have been before your were born. :D :D

Yukon, thanks for the invite!  I haven't ventured out to the general board yet and probably would have missed it.

Larry, we drove McGee last night coming home from 4H!  Been a bit more built that way since.  Was it on the North side between Backbone and the jog in the road?

I re titled the get together thread this morning. It is a good time to meet a bunch of good friends and eat a bunch of food. I am glad to see some members close to me.

Sounds like it.  Sits back off the road maybe 100 yards and had a rail fence when I owned it.

Yep.  I know the guy that owns now it pretty good.  Borrowed his hydraulic auger for a skid steer to put in piers to underpin our mobile home.

Dad (Roy) was renting land and a building from Mr. Evans a quarter or half east of there and on the South side of the road around that time you'd have been there.  Small world.

Wife and I met a couple at a bed and breakfast in St. Genevieve on our honeymoon.  Turns out one of their kids has a house right near us.  I told them I knew where it was and had put hay up on the same ground.
