Today I'm drinking Folgers because it's all I've got.

Start your own business based on selling whatever you are passionate about (hereafter forestry). Grow a huge network and just keep having coffee and talking about forestry with every guy or gal you meet having breakfast at counter of the greasy spoon with the circular stool seats. Always fire up your chainsaw (372XP) whenever you are around wood and/or people. Cut some wood everyday and keep your chain and your wits as sharp as you can, even if that's just sorta dull. Soon people will be asking you about forestry and then you can talk a bit and have coffee time(kavvi aikka??) which gets everyone in a good mood and makes for more chatting about forestry.

Buy a car, like an RX7, that is not heavily in demand in the rally scene. Low demand = lots of free parts. RX7s aren't cool so everyone is ditching them. What you miss in contingency money you will make up for in lower expense.

Next take your uncool car and smash it up a little so everyone who sees it knows you need parts. Keep talking wood and having kavvi aikka and soon you will find someone who needs to get rid of some RX7s. Give them a hug and tell them thanks.

It's not actually that cheap I guess, but it's a quick way to go from no rally junk in your yard to a bunch, which means you are once again deep with the Tony Soprano of motorsports. Like my boy Marshall I'm so glad to be back, when the trees I smack get a little bit black from the smack of my tire on the back of my Mazda that was off the main track oh no my Bondo cracked where are my triangles at? Why is Cizmas at the back of the pack like a buck with a big rack taking turns with the rest of the pack?

If any of you want to talk about wood and forestry and drink coffee just come find me or keep your ears open. I'm probably nearby blathering about wildlife habitat, stewardship plans, and regenerating stems per acre, and thinnings and fun stuff.

jake,

we need to get you down to my parents forest/farm in Rochester one of these days this fall.

we have a rally cross "track," so you can fire up the mazda and the chainsaw, have some coffee and talk about trees all in one place.

seriously we should try and work something out.

For those of you who don't speak Himese, allow me to translate:

Jake smacked his new RX-7 into a couple trees, and out of pity people starting giving him free cars that they had laying around the yard.

Well, my Husqvarna is just a bitty lil' thing (142), but I fired it up in the UP last Friday to wish Jake luck. I guess I need a bigger saw for that to work :)

Good to see you're back on the stages, hoping to be there for LSPR (The Ottawa is just barely starting to turn down around Iron River and the views and weather were beautiful).

As long as you don't try to do all four things at once!


Can't see me in your mirrors?
I must be in front of you!

jake and i in his rx-7, each w/a camelback full of coffee, driving through the woods at my folks place w/the husky fastened to the hood w/a remote throttle switch for it. all while testing out a new intercom system.

My sis lives in Rotch. I need to pick up some cars in the cities anyway.

Call me at 218 393 5077 and we should get something worked out.

Dennis

The real nugget here is that people HAVE spare RX7s lying around.

That's the best kind of landowner. Sounds like you guys have a great Family Forest. It's fun to walk in the woods with folks who have put lots of care and time into their forest.

Maybe we can do some repairs. It's very important to stabilize that soil.
