 Long trip had to be made twice and worth every bit of effort. First trip the trailer suspension failed and had to be replaced. The cheapo chainsaw gave up the gost as well. Picked up a free farm boss at another cut out. The property owner had to repair the back hoe too. This is a 40+inch diameter red oak log that started out about 6 or 7 feet long. Cut it down to size and got it loaded on the trailer with out a problem. Getting it off will require some ingenuity. Looks to be a fairly large colony about 40 inches long and 10 inches in circumference( best guess peeking in the small opening in the ends with a light) Photos are public on Google plus https://plus.google.com/u/0/


part two: chain, come along, ratchet straps, a tree and some ingenuity and I have the bee log resting on the ground. https://plus.google.com/u/0/105525568580496768818/posts
