..... has resulted in a growing log pile. There's about another day's work to finish clearing the trees which were cut down by the EDF team. There will need to be a big bonfire at some point to burn up the piles of small branches and leaves which remain, however.
Progress in our work on the trees/logs has been slowed by problems with the trusty chainsaw, which has served nearly 10 years without issue until now. After much frustration and investigation, it turned out that a carburettor bolt hole had stripped allowing the manifold and carb to become loose. A repair to the bolt situation didn't resolve the issues, but after making new gaskets for both the manifold and the carb, normal function has more or less returned. Today will be the real test.
