I do 100% processing, I used to scrounge/pull some dead and down off of my 4 acres, but just recently purchased an adjoining 20 acre lot so now I just head into the back twenty to get what I need. I really enjoy being in the woods, it's a great work out, and being inherently stingy, I would hesitate to turn the oil burner on to take the chill out of the house. Since I have my own fuel supply, I just fire up the stove - or in the dead of winter keep her chugging along 24/7. Right now I have somewhere around 18 to 20 cords cut, split and stacked I would agree with the purchasing peoples opinions though, it's super time consuming. But, if I am not working, watching my daughter or walking the dog, I'm cutting. I would rather work on the house or cut wood than watch TV or whatever, but I say that now, I am in good health and relatively young, if/when that changes, so will my opinion of buying versus processing. Scrounging was OK before I had the little one, now it would be too hard to coordinate looking at a scrounge/hauling it out in a timely enough manner that I wouldn't either lose all the good scrounges or get stuck with the dregs of a scrounge. Just my two cents.
