    It would seem that he figured out that he should stick to what he is good at. Not a bad way to get 10 years plus ahead and have a splitter ready to go in a decade or so. Unless you can directly deliver it, you're not making a whole lot of money paying $110/cord if there are really 50 cord there.

    It's way out of my league- no storage space. FYI, a cord of wood (assuming he is talking about a full 4x4x8 cord) here in Chicago goes for over $300. Face cords sell for $125 to $150 in fall and winter. $110 for a full cord is actually a pretty good deal here. (I'd have to get a semi to pick up and deliver it somewhere). As I said, no room at my place. (Unless I can convince the family to do without the backyard, swingset, trampoline, garden... Hmmmm? I wonder)

    Those pics sure don't look like 50 cord. I'm thinking the guy is talking face cords.

    HM wife!! I think I found a new code name for my wife. Kudos to you. Calling her HM will keep her guessing for at least a week!

    50 cords is allot of wood. If it was cut to 16" and stacked 4' high, it would be 400yards long. You would think there would be a better pic of all the wood.

    That is a lot of money on the table if it is really 50 cord.
