    I saw that earlier.

    A real sound from my childhood.

    Another close one is the sound of cables.
    There are but two seasons. Winter, and preparing for winter.

    That is the sound of my childhood winters, too.
    Probably why I liked it so.

    Grew up next to the second largest lake in the country.
    When I was 12 I talked my dad into driving around to the other side and picking me up, so I could skate across it with the wind in my back.
    Slightly foggy day, so once I was gone for a few minutes, I couldn't see the banks, I was all alone in the mist.
    The sound of the ice cracking under me was pretty scary out there.
    It was a fine adventure.

    Thats a good story.

    One winter in particular I spent a lot of time on the ice.

    It was the winter of 91/92 after a big fire had burned up 190,000 acres and a bunch of homes and farms.

    Dad spent all fall and winter burying homes and outbuildings. I spent a lot of time with him, and there was always a pond around somewhere.

    The sound of a rock skittering across a pond after being whacked by the biggest burned willow you could find was great.

    This is worth a watch.
    Some good logging footage, but the best part is footage from logging and other related competitions back then.
