Well we headed up to Lesters today to see what we could get accomplished. We damn near had to turn back at the 26 km mark. We had expected snow to be our biggest chalenge, untill we came upon a huge tree across the road.
71775

If we were a few inches higher we wouldn't have made it. As it was we had to chop some of the bark off to squeek through.
71776

Knowing how much Lester enjoys chopping things up we requested his services to notch the log so we could drive under it easier on the way out. Lester says why don't we just remove it? I say 'cause it's a f'n big log. Lester says I've never, ever, NEVER met a tree I couldn't cut. So we load the truck and head off to remove the log.

This was when I told him he'd reached the point of no return. If we didn't finish we were bunking with him. Not going to fit under it now.
71777

Had to attack it from both sides. The blade was just long enough to make it right through.
71778

Lester sure looks serious when he's sizing things up with the saw.
71779

All business now.
71780

And to this day he still hasn't met a tree/log he couldn't cut.

Damn how long did it take him?

Between the 2 of us I'm guessing it was about 45 min. of solid work. It was actually alot easier than I was expecting. I'm sure Lester's been in the situation before as he knew exactly what to do. When we got there I asked him where to start? He said First thing we do, is nothing. And that's what he did, walked over to the log and had a good look stood back and thought. Then he snapped up and said There we go, we gott'er beat now! Where's my saw?[36] Went quick from there.

He didn't make it through in one cut. Had to do a cut on either side and at that it just made it. I think it's a 20" bar?
