    It looks like our local isp is trying to gangster everyone. I have 10mbps, which is plenty for us. No problem for internet, or Firestick streaming. Looks like they're going to start with a minimum of 100mbps, for $10 more per month. Sounds okay, but they're putting a 300g cap on it per month, and if you go over, you pay extra, just like on a smart phone. I guess they're losing cable tv business to streaming, so they're going to cap it. Bastards. They're the only option we have too.

    if one is chainsawing up fat wood, i'd also switch to a bio-oil; little nicer when you burn the stuff later.

    also keep a jar (can better wilth some kerosene and spare chains), switch chains to remove pitch and improve life and cutting. then clean and sharpen when you get home. don't put it off ;)

    dunno about other brands, but you probably want to buy the "yellow" chains for Stihl. they are more aggressive in the cut. the "green" chains have a higher tune for anti-kickback. you can fix that some by filing the rakers, but you might as well buy the better chain for $1 more. also, the kerfs are a bit wider, and the tooth pattern more alternate and stuff nobody cares about ;)

    Thanks DM!

    And howdy Jonny!


    I use my stihl for fatwood A LOT!! More than anything else really. I'll look into the bio oil. But i have never sharpened a chainsaw chain... I use them until they break or turn into a chain sander LOL. I have worn them down so low they just spin on wood doing nothing.

    I have chainsaw files... Just Seems like a ton of work to sharpen them. Maybe I'll give it a shot sometime... First need to watch an instructional video haha

    The place i normally get my chains from only ever has the green chains. I'll probably order a yellow and try one out.

    My father calls fat lighter a chainsaw killer.... But i harvest way too much to chop it into pieces with an axe or saw.

    It does ruin the chains though. And makes cleaning the saw a real chore. Still easier than chopping cords of fat wood into sections with an axe. Much easier.

    I cut it into sections, then I use a husky 4.5lb splitter for splitting it. I only split it if it's too big for my burn barrel... Which is made from a keg.. It gets so hot the entire thing glows!

    Most people use fatwood for starting the fire... But more than half my fires are JUST fatwood.

    sharpening a chain saw cahin in the field takes 10-15 minutes, and minimal equipment - i do recommend the hammer in style vise, but a file guide set, and bob's your uncle. keeps you going.

    Holy crap, a Woody sighting...good to see you back ‘round these parts.

    Depends on the browser I think. I haven’t been able to see any of his pics on my phone using Chrome, but I switched over to safari and they show up now.
