Ok guys I need some insight and help here.

sorry no pics yet. Hope new computor is here Monday and then I can get some up.

I started chinking between the interior logs. I could really feel the air leaking through between logs number 7 and 8 in the corner. I ran the chinking starting at the top and running down between the logs and then went left and right sealing between those logs.
It really cut down on the leak but I can still feel some air coming through.

There is a couple of really small checks in the logs and I want to know if the air is coming in through there?

The exterior was caulked.

It was.

Took some of the caulk I had left over and carefully filled in those checks and there was a very noticable difference. Found another couple that were also leaking. Got it almost 100%.
I can still feel a tiny amount of air coming through. Looking for this next leak.

Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Chasing air leaks is a never ending job.

Duct tape comes in an array of colors these days. I like the black.
