    Did you rent a splitter or do you just have one that isn't listed in your sig?

    It was closer to 10, but, most of the 6+ cord that came to my house are stacked (there's a decent amount that needs to be resplit). The three cord that went to my old man are on the ground and not stacked at all (Years ago I told him I'd cut, split and haul his firewood but I'm not stacking it).

    Why do you keep calling more than one a "cord". One cord, two cords.

    I suspect a regional vernacular and possibly industry related as a past customer who cleared rail and power lines used the word cord the same way.
    It's certainly not just a west coast thang.

    Did you take a picts of the nine cords as you went?​

    Hey, Redd, could you at least paint us a vivid picture with words? That might be satisfactory... ==c
    Staring down the barrel of those genetics, I would keep stacking three cords a week for the foreseeable future; You may not have many good years left. !!!;)
