    OK, I have cut some tough Chestnut Oak, just never knew it was also called Rock Oak, but it is (IMO) the toughest Oak to cut. It is in the White Oak family, and the leaves have very small lobes.

    Learn something every day!

    I cut down this "double" Chestnut Oak, then stumped it with my 066:

    i'm kinda right in between you guys and my dad (85 years young) wood show me the different trees in our woods. red,white.chestnut and rock oak. the rock and chestnut are very similar but subtle differences in the bark. it may vary depending if your using a STIHL or husky.:argue:

    Get that in a one and 1/2 x 1 1/2 and we will video it from an angle that makes it look like it's a 10 x 10 :D:zpong:

    I was going to ask earlier, but didn't and this post reminded me. Will there be any milling at this GTG? A demonstration perhaps.... it seems more and more people are interested in milling, I know I am. Debating whether or not to order the 36" mill from HL supply.

    Since the Mustang will be pretty full, OK if I just contribute some $ to defray expenses?

    I’ll be there. Is there anything specific needed? If not, I’ll be more than happy to contribute to a food fund.

    Sunday and Monday I will be busy and at work then kiddie soccer. Sorry. I appreciate the offer! I should be able to get it done. We're going to set all the cutting up around the lower loop to keep clean up to a minimum. I think it will work out well. I'm getting the tires/wheels back for the 35 deluxe so dad will likely put them on. We got beet juice in them . Lol
    That was a first for me, but Dwight shrute would be pleased. ;)
    I've been too busy to keep up with the updates. I appreciate you working on that Jason. Don't hesitate to let me know what you guys think we're missing. Does anyone have a roll of tickets? I could try to find something to raffle off for fun? Maybe a truckload of cookies. ;). Lol.

    I think we could use veggies yet. And chips. And ???
