Helping Kjetil preparing firewood

October 22nd, 2016

Heading for Fetsund together with #1 today, Kjetil had been handed over some firewood by a friend. Problem was that he did not have the proper equipment to chop the wood, so I brought the chain saw. But the chain saw is only for cutting it to manageable pieces, but to chop it to small pieces we needed to use a good old fashioned axe. Good thing I had bought myself a brand new one at the Øyo factory outlet when at Geilo.

Walk along the Hol I penstock

October 9th, 2016

I wanted to run from Hol I power plant, but it was a bit to steep, therefore I had to walk. The sportstracker app died twice on the way up, therefore "Start" at the top. Almost an hour up and down.

Busy Saturday - firewood and tree tending

October 2nd, 2016

Now my in-laws do not need to worry about freezing temperatures, the garage is now filled up with firewood

I also had to take care of two large birch trees that had been felled by the wind earlier this week. My oldest son actually saw and most of all heard this one go down not to far from our out-building. Since it was pretty tempting for him to climb on it, together with the fact that it would have been not all safe, I had to remove it.

Second tree close to our neighbours, also an old birch with decay.
