Cutting in this weather drains you quick. Then have a bad back since 40 years ago makes it that much better. But I found after I cut for 2 hours the pain goes away but it's a nasty 2 hours until getting loosened up. On the plus side this time the wood is free and only 1 mile from my home, all I could want or use. Other than that the only thing to mention is my "NEW" chain saw. Never had one before. The last 2 started giving out and a neighbor let me borrow his. Like it so much I bought one for myself. A Stihl MS 180 C, 16" bar, works good for wood already down. The neat thing with this model is the easy start. The pull start is not traditional pull start. You pull this one out slow, crank does not turn, and it stores the energy then releases it to start. Like the old windup lawn mowers. Sure is easy on an old guy, that's why my neighbor got his. Getting close to 60 I'm an old guy also.
