    a442efb7d006b991ea8a356c914fa353.jpg look what I got today at an antique store for 15 bucks. Forget that little ole camp bow saw! I'll cut some real fire wood now.

    What you think?

    Those teeth look very aggressive, are they sharp? May be the picture, but the blade looks like it could use some polishing and oiling. Handle looks in good shape and strong. Yeah, $15 was a steal. You say you got this at an antique shop? I'm surprised at the price they usually rob you. Good job! 251fee779624439e4321789b0d23b2e0.jpg let's cut some wood!

    Good morning. Yeh I think I sawed wood all night. First night I had off all week, and the cat was wondering why I was in bed with the wife all night. Up and lit oil lamp and got cup of joe. I enjoy this. 1d5bcde618d0fdf34ef89fc65aeb7ff5.jpg

    Oh my wife would be all over that lamp! Good morning! I'm glad to hear you had a good night. I get a kick out of that cat of yours, last picture just slays me, your both stretched out in bed. I'm going to go wild today and have a cup of French Vanilla Cappuccino for a first cup of coffee today. I'm sitting here with my dog waiting for the wife to get up. She is entitled to sleep in today, but I'm getting anxious for that joe. Did you go fishing? bac09763a7a71ab9f73225442141b49e.gif

    caf8373cc18d51149b9dd90f08460486.jpg this brass Aladdin is née and got it for about 60 but after new wick, mantel and chimney comes to about 100 bucks also. I like them.

    Just showed my wife that lantern, I swear she drooled. Beautiful lamp! Yeah, I have only the best, empty bottle of tabasco sauce, filled with lamp oil and an old wick placed in it. Burns asking time, light out isn't overwhelming! Ha

    It was supposed to rain all day, but sky clearing off and leaving mists in the mountains. Hard to get good picture with this phone. 6bcf3b7f6362e06d692f9d9a4880b7ba.jpg 5b083f7a90330cbd18292ec289889a1c.jpg

    Thanks. I do like it here, but there is beauty in lots of states. Wife keeps interupting my camping stuff with her research of her antique pistols that she inherited from her dad and grandfather.

    I just got a new saw 20170419_140514.jpg 20170419_140514.jpg 20170419_140506.jpg

    Silky has some really nice folding saws. I like this one for the aggressive teeth and compactness. Stores in a hard plastic case. Now, to get it out and try it.

    Good looking packable saw. I think next camp saw I buy will be a rechargeable chain saw. Wow I was just joking around! New camp equipment! 9297008a41200dbceee4c3e3633dec0d.jpg

    Those teeth look super aggressive. Arnold Schwarzenegger would have a hard time pulling that saw through anything but jelly!

    I've seen those electric (battery) chain saws. We use electric (plug in) chain saw. We use it with a propane generator or outside outlets. No problems like so many have with gas/oil mixes. Anyway, when we looked at battery operated saws, I was afraid they were too new on the market. New products are either knock outs or need allot of fine tuning. I decided to wait and see how other people got along with them. On other forums I've read were other people are considering battery chain saws, but no one reviewing them yet. Well see. I can't imagine the weight aspect and I wonder what the true benefit would be. That little Silky saw I have is aggressive and smooth, it's really no work to get great results. To each their own I guess.
