I cleared out a wider area than that. Not by much, but I didn't have any problem walking down by the already hung wires.

Thinking back I guess it was 2006-2007 timeframe I built that fence, not '08-09.
Early the next year, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on logging and clearing the place, and put in logging the contract that if they dropped anything on the east/west fence on the North side, they could just load their equipment and move on out the same day. I guess the Lord felt sorry for an old fool, because when Hurricane Ike came thru Sept 08, it dropped trees on every fence out here but not a one on that North side East to West fence.

I know I don't. Luke and I talked about that. Those guys stretch it on a whole nother plateau. Ok. I should put the closer. Also need to know what stays are.


Stays are twisted sections of wire that go perpendicular and across your fence strands to prevent them from tangling.

They make wire adapters that hook to a come along, you can stretch them a lot tighter that way vs just a standard stretcher.

On those twisted stays..some of them almost float down on their own with just a little pressure..other times, you have to twist and push. Be careful not to push too hard, you can distort the straight lines of the stretched fence wire. They seem to work better, if all the wires are evenly spaced top to bottom.

Thanks Andy. I stretched it with a comealong and tied it off with the goldenrod. Not as tight as you and Farm, but pretty tight.

Is that a fencing tool I need?

No. I carry my cell phone but carrier pigeon is more reliable out here. Especially down in that particular holler.

If I had even slight narrowing of a coronary artery, I think it would have revealed itself. Because I still push myself in some very hot humid weather. One thing I notice as I get older, you can still work hard but you feel it more that evening.

Oh it will, believe me..but probably not like the ones you see on TV and in the movies...you'll likely feel 'out of sorts' one day, eventually go to the doc, he'll run some tests and come back and ask you when you had your heart attack(s)
