    Thanks for replies on the turkey oak. When this felling season (winter) is over I will have a go at milling some, meanwhile it is cracking up pretty good on it's own.

    Great pictures as always. Looks beautiful out there.
    As boss you need to be the one operating the machine, not stood outside freezing!
    For UK it was quite a cold snap, but we seem over the worst of it now. Just want it to stay dry.

    Hi Graham, dry sure is best for getting on working, but it sure is too dry round our way. Ponds in our woods that are usually overspilling in February are practically empty of water. If we don't get rain at some point I reckon we could see a drought this summer, in Essex and Suffolk.

    Moving machines is so peaceful early on a Sunday morning. Even if it is foggy.
