Plus, in a weird way i think it separates me too much from nature, take that how ya will. I really appreciate all of the advice and recommendations, i watched the cordwood challenge and it sure looks tough, right now i am still young enough with enough vinegar leftbin me that if i have to trade the extra work for the peace and quiet, i will.

Pretty much everything the size of my arm and smaller gets cut by hand, and larger stuff is usually a coin toss until it reaches thigh diameter. That's when the chainsaw wins.
