If you remember we bought an atv and a pull behind brush mower.
|"Lil Burro" clearing brush.|
Our original plan was to get a fire pit and burn the brush when we were out there. Well we quickly got behind on that. So we had a wonderful idea of renting a wood chipper. Why not, we are near "Fargo".
Our biggest piles of brush are where we were clearing out to make a road to an eventual campsite.
Everything behind this brush pile is stuff we cleared out of that area behind it.
Kendra was a great help. I of course did the best I could with my arthritis acting up. And Lisa was a wood chipping animal.
We finally got through that pile and we were nearing the end. We started at a quarter to 11 and ended up close to 5. But we got it done. Now we can see where more trees need to be removed and more brush cut back. The stuff we cut with the mower is already growing again so we need to get our atv working and it is in the shop. We can't wait anymore so I would like to introduce "Bluetus".
We bit the bullet and bought a brand new one. It is bigger and more powerful than "Lil Burro".
Also on a side note, Lisa got into the poison ivy. She got it before her vacation to Florida and it kind of got worse while she was there. So much so that she went into the clinic when she got home for meds to help take care of it.
So back to the pioneers. I don't know if I could have been one in the late 1800's. I was probably more suited to be a dapper gambler and Lisa a saloon girl or school marm. Who knows?
We are getting ready for a big adventure so stay tuned.
