    Got 4 loads home so far, roughly 2 cords.
    Got rained on today but finished getting the load. Trail turning to mud, logs muddy, gloves a wringing wet muddy mess, everything muddy.
    I'll wait a day or 2 with no rains for things to dry up some.
    Warm front & wind coming thru, snow on the mts is melting. :)

    Now that looks like the life Bogy! Nice work! Nice place! Congrats on a good life!

    I have to take some time off when the temperatures drop some more. Get my wood moved in under the porch and get out there and cut 30 cord for next year. Then try to get it split and stacked before the snow flies. Oh, man, that sounds like a lot work. ;hm Maybe I will cut 20 cord and come up with the money to buy the other 10. :p Ya. That's the ticket. Or should it be 10 and 20? ;lol

    Is that from the state lands on Buffalo Mine Rd?

    If you run out of room for wood, just start dropping it off here. I have my racks all built, enough of them to hold about 25 cords :)

    I love everything about birch, grows quick round here, looks great, splits easy, and burns well.

    Just love those pictures :)

    That is right. 30 face cord in a full year. So 10 full cord. I heat a roughly 4200 sq.ft. house, 900 sq.ft. garage to 45::Fall winter , and all our domestic hot water for showers, laundry, dishwasher, etc. The boiler does a great job. And I do not think that is a lot of wood for all that load. I do have a couple of areas that I need to improve the insulation on, but that will come with time.

    Very nice! BTW, the birch I've been working has gotten less stringy as I've worked the upper limbs but the trunks still suck.

    Yea state cutting area.
    LOL, You're were the one with all the wood. How many 10 cord, log length loads you processed so far?
    When I get "to much wood", I'll start dropping some off LOL :)

    One of the ones I cut is going to be a tough one to split. Gnarely, stringy & twisted.
    I may have to pull the Hydraulics lever a little harder :)

    Hopefully I'll get some split this weekend. Let the woods dry out some.

    May have to use LLigetfa's umbrella over the splitter idea. Rain forecast thru the weekend

    Looks like you are making good use of your time Dave. Any idea how much longer you might expect to be able to cut and haul wood?

    I keep banking on cutting wood most of the winter. Some years I can't because of too much snow but other years, like last year, I can cut all winter. However, my body usually gives out before the weather stops me. But then, it is not only snowfall which will keep me out of the woods as I really do not enjoy freezing my feet and hands so when it gets really cold and/or windy, I stay by the wood stove.

    Mud, what mud? All I see is sawdust;) I enjoy your pics always. I love the mountain pics you often take. Speaking if mountain, couple more loads of birch, you can call that mt bogy. Be well
