Hello hello, fantastic people!
Today's dailyish email got me thinkin': what are y'alls tips for scything on a hill?
Most videos and demonstrations are on perfectly flat land, but quite a bit of my scythin' is pretty darn hilly.
After 6 or so years I'm getting the hang of it but I thought I'd check in.. 'curious about other techniques.
I suppose hill scything becomes <i>even more</i> of a full body exercise. I switch between walking directly uphill and walking in either direction across the hill, which implies either scything uphill or downhill. I rarely walk straight downhill. Since the hills all have different slopes, it's really all about paying attention to the body.
I'm kinda guessing here, but I was thinking that maaaaybe a short blade could help. Do y'all use different blades for different landscapes? I'm aware of brush blade, but maybe a shorter blade could be useful for hills?
Well, y'all are the tops! Enjoy the winter
