Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

My source is the community Woodfuel project - working in local small woodlands thinning them out & "sharing the spoils" so it's a few hours graft but I'm happy to be outside, even if the previous session did rain all day. I was doing it last season but covid stopped it in its tracks so I only got a ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Gathered another (very) full boatload of Woodfuel today - I'm basically grabbing every opportunity at the moment in case we get a bigger local lockdown which will stop it dead. Looks like a good weather day tomorrow to get it processed as well.

Made the most of the great weather & cut/split/stacked my first haul of firewood. Think building another log store might be on the cards...

Had the first wood-fuel session of the season today & came away with a nice boot-load of log that I shall look forward to processing on a drier day. Glad to see that plenty of thought had been put into Covid safety & common sense was observed throughout.

Re: What have we become?

But the concept just isn't hard to comprehend - stay away from people outside your immediate bubble - people KNOW who they spend time with on a daily basis, it isn't hard to work out. A case in point. Before lockdown started to ease our neighbours were commenting on how desperate they were to be abl...

Re: What have we become?

I just don't understand it - if only folks realised that "all" they need to is isolate as much as *reasonably practical for 2-4 weeks (at the same time) its would kill most of the virus transmission in its tracks, but because of the few entitled, the ignorant and the arrogant it's just going to keep...

Re: Power tools

I have a growing inventory of Ryobi One+ tools as I like having a single battery model fitting all my tools. not had any issues with them so far after a few years (though the small hand-held vacuum is pretty crap but TBF I think all of these little vacs are anyway).
