Watched this show a year or so ago, then I watched it again the other day... Had to laugh at this one....

Learn to use an ax and respect it
and you can't help but love it
But abuse one and it will wear your hands raw
and open your foot like an overcooked sausage


So anyone know where this quote came from????

Congrats, you've won the right to go out and build yourself a cabin in the wilderness. He makes it looks so easy but it really no laughing matter so I guess I posted this in the wrong place..

Not really a laughing matter, but a rather comical way of putting it :P
