After working at forest whole day dragging pieces of wood through the net of cut branches, stumps and still standing trees to trailer and unloading them to the barn got to my back and some serious stretching is needed. Unfortunately I have never really played basketball.

Here is a longish video about the fastest highway to our forest. Reversing and couple of jumps are because I had only one hand available for driving.

This route is the fastest to the the forest but there are couple of other highways in forest which are about 400 meters longer because they do not go on field.

Got to thinking about allergies, new western and soon also eastern world epidemic decease.

I ended up with two main reasons. Environment and food at young age but I am not sure if those are all what is needed to get allergic. I think genetics has nothing or very little to do with allergies.

Because of these two factors I have following recommendations until age of 10. These may be in priority order.
- Breast feeding children to either maximum age of 5 or as long as possible is mandatory.
- Cooking from natural ingredients (does not need to include hunting) instead of warming your food in microwave owen is mandatory.
- Living in the middle of forest and having at least one pet is almost mandatory.

Trying these also after your 10th birthday may help but problem seems to be that when allergy to some food or environmental issue gets started getting rid of it may not be an easy thing to do. What is for sure needed is years with natural food in countryside environment.

Notice that my parents, I, or my two brothers have never had any allergies but my brothers son and my mothers sisters son have had.

I also think that having 30-50 billion euros maintenance and fixing debt for buildings which all cost only about 350 billion euros is a lot. Most of that is not government debt. Having 2.5 billion euros maintenance and fixing debt for roads and bridges is peanuts compared to buildings.

Special note that Finland has a lot of mold schools (some have already been prohibited for use) because of poor buildings methods (and in some case combined with poor maintenance) used especially 1970's and 1980's. Very typical problems have been letting construction and insulation of building to get wet from rain during building time and making flat roofs for buildings without yearly maintenance and checkups in county which has a lot of rain and hard winter time.

Here it is my new totem pole ready for rot protection after it has dried a bit. It has rained here several times today and even more during past whole month my totem pole waited for carving.

BTW the face of the totem is to the North. I do not know if that has any deeper meaning but for these spiritual or religion related artifacts points of the compass are typically an important issue.

Here is the final version from my very first ever chainsaw carving work. All possible same-sightedness to any living creatures is just good fortune.

Before and after photo from yesterday and today evening. No more ready cut pieces of wood in forest, rain started again and barn is full. I dear not add more wood than these two rows to the barn because of the weight.

My very first log and the last (for today). Three trees branched, cut and 5 logs transferred to temporary storage area within 2 hours. Quite ok because I need to transfer them about one and half kilometers (500 meters on road and field).

For those still interested. You want clean logs with minimum length of 4 meters and diameter of 15 centimeters if you want to do something else than just firewood from them.

New damages after two days in 25 Celsius degrees creating about 800 meters new highway to forest for log skidding and moving about 8 loads of already cutted wood from forest to barn.

Nothing to do with the fact that Finland has made a big mess from its energy politics and future sources.

New set of photos about how to rise a heavy totem pole along and how to fasten it safely. There is actually three metal plates at the bottom of pole not just two.

In theory this has been the coldest summer in Finland for decades although now it has been too hot for any forest work. In many places it has been raining so much and so long time that is as spoiled sowing from many farmers.
