A good find and good news..........................;}-

Trish and I were on one of our Rideabouts around the Toledo area and saw this:


eteggsveggies014.jpg[/IMG]


could not pass this up, so I grabbed it;$15 and it cost $169 at the stores,
http://www.parpools.com/Page/BackYard/BackyardGear.html, not a fancy,smancy Stainless Steel one, but just right for me.....

AND, a friend of ours said he wants to give me a couple of trees
One is a Hickory and the other is a White Oak








Both trees are probably 60' or so tall, a lot of wood. I'll be supplied for a long time;hope this doesn't fall through, this will ease the hurt of fueling my hobby.
I don't always get this lucky, I'm not complaining though, when I do hit the jackpot, I HIT the jackpot

I'm a happt camper now
now I can REALLY
SMOKE HAPPY

The original link didn't work because a comma at the end got included.

Nice find!

Wow free trees. How fortunant. Now you should also get him to pay you to cut em down since he obviously wants em gone. A good Tongan tree monkey prob charge a coupla thousand to take em down and a few hundred to haul em off. Figger that into the equation. Now if the owner gonna knock em down and whack it up for you this would not apply of course. That just leave him owing you a few hundred haul off fee

No in fact I helped a fairly well preserved divorcee lady cut down a tree free of charge just the other day. Unfortunantly I had been using the world famous Polan chain saw to murder holly bushes below ground level with it previously. Whew that thang would not cut hot butter. It took me so long to cut down the tree it got sorta embarrasing. Then this fella come along and started the motor and I jumped back and say "Whut's that noise?" Always wondered whut the little rope deal was for.

Update...........................;]_

Talked to Todd,(the friend with the trees)and he said he was going to fell the Hickory as soon as it quits raining...........I'm so stoked over it I could just turn flips.(if you knew me you'd be LYAO at that statement).
The Wife is fretting about "where" all that cordage is going to go
My problem is having enough to cover the wood for protection !
