    Thanks for posting these VK, these GTGs look like a lot of fun for the attendees. Hopefully I can make next year’s, wherever that may be...

    As an aside, call me a bleeding heart green but I hope that wasn’t in a National Park, all those healthy trees/bushes being hacked and slashed? I’m sure Pradopointers are far too respectful of nature to be doing that sort of thing…..
    No need to worry, no National Parks were harmed in the making of the GTG.
    The track was just through normal everyday Tassie bush - no trees were dropped, just a couple of small damaged branches trimmed.

    After seeing Vaughn in action, I'm going to need a bigger chainsaw.

    Most people would prune more out of their gardens in a weekend than was trimmed for that crossing, that bush needed a good prune anyway

    Boys will be boys I guess. I wish you blokes had lived nearby me 20 years ago. I used to live in a house on the Northern Tablelands which had a slow combustion stove that provided all our heating, hot water and cooking. If the stove went out, we had none of all three. As a result I spent more hours than I care to remember chainsawing timber. It was always a dirty sweaty job, not something I looked forward to, and I would have gladly handed the saw over to such willing folk

    I grew up in Tassie and we had 2 fireplaces that burned all day every day for about 7 or 8 months. Every year we used to cut and split around 50 tons of wood and then move onto splitting fence posts, apart from the chainsaw it was all done by hand.
    I take my saw these days and split wood not because i enjoy it but because i know how and i love a good fire. We have slow combustion heated at home and only use 3 or 4 ton a year so its not a big task now.

    My father in law has an open fire about 300 days of the year. He cooks on it most nights too (its funny trying to watch him use our touchscreen cooker ). He had a permit to cut wood in the state forest. But at 75 he's recently decided it's too dangerous being out there by himself. Now he just gets a ute load from the sawmill
