Split Rails

 

A couple years back, our company was privileged to have the opportunity to provide Black Locust Split Rail Fencing to the National Park Service for the Yorktown Battlefield. Everyone here understood the importance and significance of this destination. It was a very large order that took us all winter to produce. I particularly remember a number of blustery snowy days that made the log splitting challenging to our guys who were already doing a tough job. The logs are hand rolled with a peavey into position, and then lifted onto the splitter with a hydraulic lifter. As the log rolls over into place, it has to be manhandled into the optimum split line. No easy task as the logs range in weight from 300 to 1200 pounds. This process is repeated over and over until the entire log has been split down to a single remaining rail.  Cold days make cold fingers that don’t feel good getting constantly mashed. Nonetheless, the guys trudged on, tolerating my occasional interruptions of historical anecdotes in an attempt to boost morale. The rails were piled to the side for the axe guy who makes a dozen or so chops to trim the splinters. He never stopped to listen. Never got cold though, either.

INTRODUCING The EMBARK Blog

To EMBARK is to begin a new journey of exploration. Interestingly, this state makes no promise or false claim of excitement, glory or fulfillment. Yet for so many of us, the idea of journeying holds a magic allure. It beckons to us sweetly with predictable routine. A new journey suggests a fresh start like being released from past mistakes but retaining the benefit of experience gained and wisdom carried forward. Is this why we explore?  
Each of us prescribes our own adjectives in preparation of traveling. We hold our own beliefs about what is waiting for us. As an experienced journeyer myself, my personal success most often rests in recognizing the journey as a void – and knowing that void is not empty – it is pure potential. Therefore the journey depends on me. But I have come to depend on the journey to peel away my layers of falsity and judgment and to become open to wander and wonder.
