I had this amazing revelation about the whole log mess, and it might work out, after all.
During all this time that I've been fretting over what to do with these logs, I'd forgotten all about CI. I figured he was out of the picture because the guy is busy trying to build his homestead, he doesn't need more work on his plate.
Either way, I figured I'd give him a call, because the logs are in a good place now, and he wouldn't need bring his excavator. I spoke with him and he was totally cool. He said he'd be happy to mill the wood, and that he was sorry he'd forgotten, but that he didn't have a way to move the logs.
In other words, I was going to have to find a way. He did, however, suggest a friend, who I'll call. At least I've found someone willing to cut the logs into boards, so I'm about 35% there. All I need is a 10 ton truck. Piece of cake.
We'll see where this one goes. Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Michaela Kobyakov for the pic.
