My property is about 40 acres, around 25 of which are recently harvested timber. There are stumps everywhere! Many of them are in my way. I was going to rent a stump grinder for a day or two, but after counting to about 80, I decided to buy one for my tractor.

Well now that it gets dark at 6PM, I have some time to add some postings. Over the summer, I finally completed the gate that I had been planning since the previous year (see previous post). I also completed the generator retrofit I had planned, but that was under the gun during an extended power outage in the winter. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten to the cabin yet, but I plan on starting work on that spring/summer of next year. More on that in a later posting, as I have firmed up some plans and picked a building site for it.

In preparation for my gate building project, I bought a cement mixer. I unfortunately didn’t realize until later though that I had no way to power it out where the cement needed mixing. I figured I would keep an eye on Craigslist for a broken down generator that I could get for cheap and fix up. Continue reading “Generator Retrofit”
When I first moved onto my property, I knew that I would eventually want to install a driveway gate to keep thieves, nosy neighbors, property appraisers, etc off of my land.

Been awhile since I’ve written an update. I finally found myself an ATV for cheap, and have been rebuilding it in the evenings. On the house remodel front, I’ve got the mantle ready to be mounted tomorrow, and am finally finishing the stairs. Not going to bother posting the ATV pics again, have them on Imgur . Glad to see there is some auto integration.
This little punk lived in the bushes between mine and my neighbors house. While it was originally friendly with her animals, it turned nasty as they always seem to do.

I’ve been keeping my eye open for a cheap ATV that I can use around the property, so yesterday I notice this ad pop up on Craigslist:
2000 YAMAHA GRIZZLY 600 4 stroke ATV. 1048 on the meter. It needs a motor if you’re mechanically inclined or part it out. The motor blew one day while riding so I’m not sure whether the motor can be rebuilt. $1700
I have the title and bill of sale from when I purchased it. Contact me with ??’s
