I Really Need to go for a Ride!

I need a break. I spent all day prepping for Winter. I walked through the woods today and cut up 8' sections of downed Oak trees. I shouldered them out of the woods and went back for more. I felt like the Ant from Aesop's Fables, "The Ant and the Grasshopper". Tomorrow I'm going to be the Grasshopper. The high is supposed to be in the mid 40's and I'm going riding!
I made a Sawbuck out of two pallets and two short pieces of chain. It worked pretty slick. I cut 6, 16" lengths from each 8' section. It went pretty fast.

Then I had to split it..

The beauty of the day was not lost in work. I managed to finish dinner just in time to see this..

Tomorrow, I'll move the wood out of the driveway and go for a ride!
