This last weekend was Christmas Tree Festival in Ogema. I did not go to town, but I hear through the grapevine that quite a few local names were present for the "Run to the Peak", which is a nine mile run from Ogema to Timm's Hill, the highest point in Wisconsin. Anyone care to fill us in on how they did? I hear Kristi, Ivan and Kyle, Russ Blennert, etc were in the run. Updates, people, you know we are the news source for the Westboro through Phillips area.
We had a visit with Hailee in early August. It's always fun to have her around.
Seems like Peggy has a bunch of masks.... go figure. Anyway, Hailee tested them all.
I realized that there has been no wood update this summer!!! I was hoping to use a wood splitter on the bulk of this hard maple, but no one had one that would take our longer wood (25-28"), so right after the 4th of July weekend I started in with my splitting maul.... great fun! Peggy made a deal with me that she would stack the wood if I did the splitting. She is now fully versed in all aspects of tractor driving, wood stacking, etc.
A view of the splitting project. This wood pile started as 12 pulpwood cords so we ended up with a ton of splitting to do.
I had just finished up all the splitting and Peggy was nearly caught up with me.
Here is a view of Peggy's nicely piled firewood stacks. Seriously, I think I helped stack maybe half of one of those long rows, the rest was done by 'da woman.....
And here is a little view from the top of the lodge...... I like this view. Thanks for all you do around here, Peggy...
