No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Just in Time


Tuesday, 26th March 2013.
Kings Bromley Marina.

At 8am today I put our last log on the fire, an hour later my mobile rings, it's my mate Phillip who lives on a small holding not far from the Marina " Can you give me a hand to drop an old dead oak tree in one of our fields, yes, a fresh supply of logs.

Once a mighty Oak, now a dead stump.

All the action in 21 seconds
 
The tree then gets savaged by the Stihl's

Phil hurtles across the field on his old dumper truck with an air cooled Lister engine complete with hand crank starting.
 
Only to get stuck in a snow drift, it doesn't look that deep but we had to use shovels
to get it moving again.
 
Theres still a large length of trunk to be cut up so I shall be round there again tomorrow.

Not much chance of that Lister overheating! What a fantastic supply of logs!
