50 Degrees in December? Heck Yeah!

It was just too nice to be inside much this past weekend.  Yes, we have tons of work to do.  Yes, Christmas is a week away and we have no tree or presents purchased.  But when you have a new Polaris Ranger 4x4 just itchin' to do some work, it's hard to concentrate on indoor tasks!

Great weather to get the fire started!

 First, Scott figured out how to remove the Ranger's snow plow.

We loaded up the Ranger with wood from one of the piles west of the house.
Backing the ranger up to the fire pit for easy dumpin'.

Scott demonstrates the dump bed function. . . it just takes a quick lift of the lever (I like to pronounce it "leeeever" just for fun).

Scott even let me drive!  And, yes, I am wearing my fluffy yellow mittens.  What is this, a fashion show?

On Sunday, Scott cleared the west slope trail a bit wider so the Ranger can drive the entire circuit.  He and his trusty chainsaw took out about fifty 1/2" - to - 6" diameter trees.  Scott replenished the "new" firewood pile behind the barn, and burned a bunch, too.  A productive weekend - just not in the way I had planned. 

Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
