    I have a generous off by a fellow member to meet me half-way to Oxford, MA with 120 all nighter presses logs, 8 lb. Sometimes known as North Idaho Energy Logs. I want to split the 120 logs 3,4,5 ways. I only about 20 or to test with.

    They're 8lb pressed logs. Supposed to give really long burns/btus. Look up north Idaho energy logs on the web.

    Well, we have 120 logs at $175 or so. So my computer-like mind says about 1.45/log.

    Ok, I have to ask where in Milford you are getting these... I happen to live in Milford you see :)

    I'm done burning compressed sawdust though. Believe it or not I have found real wood to give me better heat and burntimes, but perhaps I'm just not burning them right or not using the right logs. In any case if you are driving all the way here for these things they must be special.

    Let me know where and when and I'll drive up there and meet you with the cash. You said it's about $1.48, so around $45 for 30?

    if i like really these, i'll probably order a pallet or 2 myself and have it delivered. would be willing to share the load to cut the delivery fee.

    I'm eager to hear more folks report back on these. It is possible I have written off compressed logs too soon :)

    So i called a dealer in Idaho near there factory, the price for a pallet (240 logs) is $199. My brother in law is a truck driver and will bring them back for me for free on his way back from a delivery, its amazing how much shipping affects the price in the north east. If anybody gets them before i would love to know how they work, if i get them first i will post a review!
