  1. In a nut shell there's two kinds of saws. 


    ——— Home owner————

    ( use it once in a while and it never runs because the gas is bad) 

    ———Pro series——————

    always has premium fuel, frequent use , maintained well, built for it. 


    Example,  Stihl Pro series saws are made in Germany. 
    The ones on the shelf at Ace hardware    are not. 
    There truly is a differance.

    I am not big on sissy wear for dogs, but I really appreciate your consideration of your dog here. Dogs on hot hard pack really bother me. 

    She wears them mostly because everybody at the farmers market just adores her and they go crazy when they see those boots light up.

    The first time I took her to the market  there were two old ladies that came up and wanted to pet her, they asked about her shoes so I told them they were prosthetics because she lost her feet in a lawnmower accident. They started to cry so I don’t do that anymore.

  3. Stihl all the way here. I have the 090, three magnum 660’s  and an 066 red light. A 260 pro, three Ms200, an 028 AV SUPER and a few other antiques i no longer use like this Indian. 

    Regardless of your favorite flavor the most important thing to consider is a nearby dealer network. 
    Sooner or later no matter what brand you choose you’re going to need some thing . 
    there are literally dozens and dozens and dozens of places I can walk in and get parts and chains and air cleaners for my Saws. I use them hard and frequently. 

    NEVER use cheap gas, set the choke before removing the air cleaner and 99 % of  the common problems can be avoided. 

    Good luck with Echo , im sure there a good saw .

    Forgive my ignorance, but is it a stone hammer, or axe? Would it have been used for hunting or something else? The place I grew up on just outside Washington D.C. had arrowheads in abundance, but nothing that size or shape. The funniest thing is that once I moved out to the country, I hardly ever saw any sort of native evidence.

    It’s a tomahawk head.

    On the arrow heads I wonder why there have been so many found over the years?  I would think they wouldn't waste anything and that in the event of a battle, hunting, kill, etc they would do everything  they could to salvage and reuse what are now artifacts.

    I was pheasant hunting with guy once and he kept finding arrow heads, after the fourth one i said oh come on man how are you doing that?  Then he came clean, he was making them as we were walking. Really quite easy to make.

  6. In the late 70’s i was disking a field by a creek when it started to squeak so i got off to grease it. This ( see photo) was laying on the ground. Had it authenticated at the university of Nebraska.  Still have it.  Coincidentally  a few months later my cousin and i were pushing dirt up the sides of that same creek with a dozer when we noticed bones coming up over the blade. I called my Science teacher. ( that wasent very well liked) and was known for NEVER giving an A to anyone. 
    he came out, looked at the bones and called UNL.  They sent out a team of people and set up a big tent over the sight, excavated a Bison with skull and horns   intact . They were on sight about a week. 
    I got an A that Semester.

  8. On that note,

    in 1984 i bought a pure breed Dalmatian puppy. 
    Named him Freon. Registered him Trihydridonitrogen, R-717.  Painted his name on the passenger door of my work van.

    sitting at a stop light in north Lincoln and a Cadillac convertible loaded with six colledge girls pulls up beside me. 

    Six month old Freon is hanging half way out the window when they start calling him by his name and just as the light changed he bailed out to try to get in with them but that didn t work out so well for him. 
    truck behind them ran him over breaking his back leg. 
    I picked him up and rushed him to the nearest vet but there only answer was to amputate his leg or i could take him to K-State vet school. 
    I said were headed to K-State, give him some pain relief and away i went .

    They were waiting for me and instantly did emergency orthopedic surgery on his leg. 
    He fully recovered and lived 14 years after that.

    Nice 560, I like the fuel tank on the Pickup too!

    I gave  SCUBA lessons to the parts guy at Peterbilt. He called me about a new tank that got scratched when being installed and i could get it cheep so i welded four feet on it, put  in a bung for the pump and its been pretty darn handy.
