    Just wanted to post a quick picture of a 3hr cut/split/load, that yielded around 1 1/2 cords. We will continue the assault on the woodpile tomorrow and of course post pics. Pictured is my good friend jeremy, learning about getting ahead!

    Looking good there WS! Those are some nice big ash rounds I believe.

    Yes, we are working on the ash for starters. Will be moving on to the oak in another week. He needs that ash for next year, so we figured on getting that done first. I'll be taking some of the oak for 3 years from now. Be well

    That is awesome, I have no shortage of wood for scrounging but that makes me jealous. Such variety all ripe for the picking. And you can leave all the mess behind! Love it! Get some

    Yup. First thing I noticed about the picture. I'd have thought you would have trained him in the right way to work! ;)

    That dude is a beast. I had a 400 lb Gaylord full of skid pieces on my truck from work for kindling' that I loaded with a forklift, unloading, I didn't think that far ahead. He came over to help... let's just lift it. And we did and I lasted about ten feet. I then used a dolly...

    I had that happen with a good friend. At the time he was 71 years old. He wanted to unload his pickup which had some wood. One huge one in there so I figured we'd just roll that off as it looked too big for both of us. Not so! I started throwing off the small stuff and to my surprise, he picked it up. So I thought he'd just turn and drop it. Not so! He walked to the pile and gently placed it. That man has always been super strong and I don't think he ever realized just how strong he was compared to others. He could carry two milk cans full of milk and lift both into the truck using just the one hand. Never looked like he was straining either. I made sure when we were little boys that he would always be my friend. For sure I'd hate to have an enemy that strong!
