For [Music] So it's just a little bit before 7 and If you're thinking wow Brock got out and Beat the Sunrise it's not that kind of Seven we're in the PM right now and I've Just beat Sunset to try to start working For the day and that's not I ideal but I've got the kind of setup that can Allow me to still have a productive day So I'm going to get the trailer unhooked And we'll get up to work and I'll tell You why I'm starting so late and kind of How things are going around Here so why in the heck is it 700 p.m. And I haven't done any work yet well We've been in Louisville the last few Days And I don't it doesn't fit in my Schedule to go to these shows in Louisville and I do it anyway and it has This driving crazy amounts and you know Running on no sleep and getting in at 2: In the morning and stuff like that so It's been a hectic week and I was Thinking I might just not do anything Today and then I said come on you can do Better than that but I think if I'm Going to talk to you guys like this I Should at least turn some lights On woo Dogg so my friends who know what I do Are always like you know Brock you can Skip a day you don't have to have a

Video every day and that's true like Ain't nobody going to care if I do six Videos instead of seven this week but What I found is if I don't record a Video I might not do anything productive So this is about getting work done and I Think we're going to use our time on The Sawmill tonight get this Lumber stacked Get some more cut and the first thing I Got to do is kind of clear some space so My tote for my firewood is completely Full and the splitter is in the way now I don't even know if I can move this Tote with the tractor because it's Hickory and Hickory is heavier than most Of the other woods and carrying the Rounds I was like man this is some heavy Stuff but we'll see so I'm going to go Get the forks on the Tractor and see if we can get this area Cleared up get this Lumber stacked get a Log milled up cut our slab go through The whole process starting at seven just A beautiful thing of having a nice Building like this with really bright Lights I only have four of my 10 lights On and only having one neighbor who's Still a little ways away So makes Mak it easier to be productive In the winter when those days get Shorter and Shorter I've answered this before on my channel But for firewood and Sawmill
