I feel a lot better about next winter now that we got delivery of next years birch. The trucker waited till the last possible day. He told me they shut the logging road down for break up right as these two trucks got down outta the hills. Some of the wood is a bit dirty where the tires splashed mud but he threw those logs off to the side of the pile. This wood is a bit fancier then I need for the outside stoves but was the same price as the tops we some times get. I'll be bucking and splitting about 6 cords of this pile for the fireplace the rest will get bucked and thrown into the outside stoves as needed. Things went nicely this week. Sold a green broke, home bred buckskin gelding that offset the price of the wood. If I can sell the hay he won't be eating I may break even. Simple hillbilly economics...................Be nice if it worked like that all the time.
