Jedi on the hunt
these dogs were in heaven
Kim's first trip to chop down her own tree
getting started on the chosen tree
this is hard work!
are you suuuuuuuuuuuuuure this is the tree you want?
that sure is one large tree
I'm a lumberjack and I'm okay....
I sleep all night, and I work all day.
can we pull this thing over yet? apparently not.
Kim is not so sure this is a good idea. (neither am I!)
time for teamwork
We prepare to string up rope to get leverage...
...because pulling it simply isn't enough
getting the rope as high in the tree as possible. We are going to need all the help we can get.
trying to pull the tree over
it is not as easy as we might have imagined
finishing the job cutting the tree free
One might get the idea that Kim is a silly person.
we had to call in reinforcements to move the tree
I am quite happy that the tractor is doing my job for me!
It is now 38 degrees, and Kim is not faring well
the tractor hauling the tree via a strap
Yay! The tree is on the car!
now we just need to tie down this 26 foot tree so it doesn't go anywhere on the hour long drive down winding mountain roads.
Jedi was starting to get really tired at this point, and lose his enthusiasm for the adventure. Cobi is asleep in the car.
almost done, time to head home!
Man... that is some huge tree.
