So the 5 hour trip goes without a hitch, get on the property and he comes walking out from behind the barn, probably finished taking a leak. Owning property is great, you can take a leak anywhere, just saying.... I ask him where he wants it, and he directs where he wants it. I drop the tailgate down and he wants to just unload it, I say "Oh No, get the splitter. We are going to bust this S*&T right now" After a minute or so of bickering back and forth, he goes to his little barn and pulls his lawn tractor with the log splitter behind it.
Finally got a chance to snap a photo. The truck was full, and dont under estimate the old man, he is quick.
The splitting operation only took 2 hours, and that is with a few 5 min and one 30 min break. Even though it was only an overnight trip, it was good to help him out and see him and spend the day together.
