Splitting Wood is Good Exercise

Our nephew, Andrew, convinced his older brother, Pat, that splitting wood at noTTafarm on a January Saturday was a great idea.  And he was right!  Andrew, armed with his newly-purchased maul, and Pat, armed with his can-do attitude, worked feverishly for a couple of hours.  They tackled the wood pile of freshly-felled logs that we've created over the past few months.
What they lacked in experience, they made up for with fashion.

Andrew was determined to split a log of osage orange, the toughest tree on the planet (or at least at noTTafarm).

Pat did a great job and agreed that splitting wood is a great alternative to working out at the gym.

Thanks, Boys! 
We look forward to your participation in the official
Camp Lumberjack Olympics.
P.S.  I modified these photos using the on-line service, Picnik.  I thought the 1960's editing tool was a cool one to use for this article.
