Was out there today. Was able to do some weed wacking and cleared a felled tree. Unfortunately the weed Wacker went kaput after only a short bit of trimming.  :(

Guess I need to watch the forums closer ;)
Creeper, Sorry totally missed your post.
Cleaver, thanks for what you did get done.
If you 2 guys could get the North loop done, that would be great.
Last weekend I mowed the Connector. Got out a couple nights after work and started weedwacking the south loop, I'm about half done. Have a couple trees I need to clear here also.

Landon and I went out today with my son Calvin and completed the North loop. There is still about a third of the South loop that needs trimming and three trees on the South loop that require a saw.

Thanks Guys
I went out after work for a little bit. There is still one section left from the big dead burr oak tree up to the connector. I did cut 3 trees out also that I can remember.
I have plans tonight and tomorrow so probably won't get out to finnish until Friday.

Yeah you did, it was fantastic. What are you using for trimming, a chain whip?

I like to get right down to the dirt.  My theory is it stunts the regrowth so it doesn't come back as fast. It is more time consuming and dirtier. Go thru more string also.
