Default Not Santa's Sleigh !

We decided to give our new sleigh a shakedown test ,all went well, could have used some more snow on the trails.

Nice haul.

But I would have preferred it full of presents instead of firewood.

Thanks, I was the stay at home photographer when they got back. I'm going to enjoy burning the black cherry on this load, because a week ago this tree took me and my saw for a ride , ending with 250 bucks of parts for my new saw and a fractured L1 vertebrae for myself !

Nice sleigh.
Glad you are in good spirits.

make sure to show the remaining trouble makes the ashes to remind then of what happened to the last tree that refused to be nice. Could have been a beautiful piece of furniture but now the trouble maker is gone.

did the tree hang up?

DAMN

Be careful out there.

I have a fairly small property but was working far enough from the house once that my wife couldn't hear when I got into trouble. Got knocked off my tractor by a branch that fell. Nothing broken but I took a good hit and then hit the ground hard too. Made it up to the house after getting my breath and regaining my senses. Wife got me to the emergency room to get me checked out. Lots of blood but no serious injury.

Hope you are feeling better.

What are they doing for the fracture? Cast? Wrap & tape? Rest?

Thanks everyone , Let's just say , a lapse of concentration on my part and I should have zigged instead of zagging ! Either way ,still kicking with a nice backbrace , all is good when you can put your own pants on in the morning !
As for the trailer, its heavy , all of it is scrap steel that I had, only the ski's are new stock.
Regards. J5 Bombardier

Thanks Pixie
The sleigh will stay as is, the ski's are quickly removable, could build a set of tracks for it , unloading with clam works good . If I ever build another, I would copy my Bombardier trailer, light but able to take some pretty heavy loads of wood .

Wood season has started for 2017, must admit the first day went pretty well . Its been a year since I lost a fight with a black cherry tree, so today it was maples only, and they cooperated nicely !

Not Santa's Sleigh is losing it's skis, they have been recycled into ramps . My attempt at skis were a failure, so some old muskeg walking beams were converted into tracks much the same as the bombardier trailers. The tracks are now installed on the the parked trailer and the skis / ramps have found a new use.

Finally got it right, just have to build risers at the tracks when hauling 42 in fire wood . Right now it works great hauling logs.
