    Picked up the maple and ash we cut last week since it finally got cold enough to drive over the yard they were in. Took a load of ash and two loads of maple out today. Looks like another 3 loads left for another day.

    Sean, it would be better working if you got rid of that white stuff. Still, nice work.

    Nice loads Swagler! Will you try to haul all the rounds out before you start splitting/stacking?

    You are one of the few here with snow.
    Makes it look more like winter where you are.

    Nice loads. 8' bed?
    Over 1/2 cord per trip. Good days work.
    Plenty of traction on the rear tires.

    Yes I'm taking Dennis's advise and waiting until later to split. I'm well ahead and will just be piling up for now.

    It's not like the front tires will have any grip for the drivetrain;)

    Too bad they don't make pickups with independent rear brakes

    Front tires just need enough ground contact for steering ;) LOL

    We have several feet of snow here if anyone wants to come pick it up. Makes ice fishing a lot harder not having a snowmobile.

    Nice work Sean. That looks like some good progress. I have to get out there and get a few more loads. I think I have enough for next year now. But I want to get a little further ahead. And I am not doing it during bug season! ::P

    I'm starting to get the bug for splitting but it won't be for at least 2 more weeks and then it will depend on the weather. Not sure how much we have stacked up but probably 6 cord. Would have been more but somebody showed up one day with a pickup and two big guys. Who am I? All I could do is watch them load that pickup and drive off...

    Nothing better than an 8' bed loaded down with wood! Nice loads and looks like you've got a few hours of splitting ahead to keep you busy.

    Sorry Gas. Wishlist and Pallet Pete came over one day and we loaded his pickup with some pine I had cut last December. That pine was really dry and was some good sized stuff so will work really good in the evaporator for making maple syrup. I had met Pete several times but this was the first for meeting Wishlist. I'm certain we will be meeting many times in the future. If you weren't so far away....

    Beautiful load for sure,just hoping you don't cook your bearings the chevys I had S-10's every one smoked the bearings after a couple years,from heavy hauling.But your truck is a full size ,good luck and keep haulin.

    You should have seen the loads my little s10 hauled never cooked the bearings! Those little trucks where built well my 2.2l 4cyl had 217,000 on it before it started to show and I finally sold it. That was a sad day indeed. It's even more rare because I usually drive vehicles into the ground and don't sell em.
