We started off by adding a Pat's Cat2 Quick hitch to John Deere, (Kubota already has one) and then it was off to the woods.

I am/was needing some White Oak for bridge decking so this tree in the center will be the donor.

Trimming, marking, and bucking.

The butt log was bucked 18' and the rest 12'.

Here I am ready to make the mile long skid with the 18' log.

John Deere is ready to skid two 12' logs.

Hooked up and making the mile skid.

All of the logs skidded out, staged, and ready for the sawmill. A hot but very productive and rewarding day.

A cab with AC would be nice but it is not in my future. Heck a year ago I didn't even have one with a "lid" or even a FEL. Now if I was making a living with a tractor it might be different.

Nice. You accomplished quite a bit. I'm east of you and it was 93, hot and humid all weekend. I had some tractor time as well, but I was sweating bad enough just operating my tractor.
