guess I fall in the "btu possessor" pile today.. but going to move up soon... very soon.
Technically, we all fluctuate in wood possession.....I've used up around a 1/4 cord so far, maybe a little less. But I've got a TON of cutting to do over the winter, so it goes up and down all the time. I guess the ultimate goal for most of us is to get a couple of years ahead....wait, I mean GET MORE WOOD THAN WE'LL EVER NEED!!
welcome to the club!
Guessing I've used maybe 2 big wheelbarrows worth so far this month.No burning this week since temps in 60's & higher here,its 76 & quite humid right now.But will be mid 50's early tommorow,falling temps w/80% chance of showers & 45 Friday through Sunday with nights 30-35.If it dont rain tommorow I have roughly 1/2 cord deadfall to finish bucking/splitting/stacking.Plus would like to drop a 12" x 50' Bur Oak that died last Spring if I have time.I'll wait until Fri/Sat if need be,no rain expected then.
What's c/s - BTU possessor
total on hand... SWA, minimum
I guess I can't be in a junkie category until it's all cut and split
I'm definitely in the addict category. Just can't pass up free potential energy.
That's EXACTLY right! Good to hear from ya, Ditchie.
It's... It's... (stutter stutter)
It's just not Christian
(i hope this doesn't end up in the ash can)
OK overkill, now HOW do I get that cool status in my sig?
Was prepping saw to buck a few small maples today, and wife said " when will you be done cutting?"
I looked wistfully off into the middle distance and said "When I die, sweetie, when I die..."
Just did some measurements before burning starts in earnest here for the year - ~13.5 accumulated since last January - squarely in the btu possessor category & happy to be here
I have never suffered from woodpile envy......until today
I am a proud SWA this week. After the winds die and I get a chance to go see the blow downs, I figure I will probably be able to classify myself as a Psycho (normally other people classify me as a psycho). I am 100 miles west of Baltimore and DC and we've already had 4 inches of rain and severe winds. GOOD LUCK to all you folks in the direct path of Sandy
I loved your wife's quote. My wife whines about the time I spend cutting wood, but when I think about how cold her toes used to feel on my back while I was trying to sleep, EVERY log I cut and split is well worth it.
It took me a while to figure out the Virgil Caine quote, but I finally got it......very nice
Awe shucks, I'm only a lowly FBCJ...
I guess I am a cord-hoarder! Six cord c/s/s plus several more cord cut and split but in piles. Just getting started on next years firewood.
Sitting on 23 cords and still cutting....we are 3 years ahead now. Just cant stop !
Cord Hoarder at 7 cords. Just getting going with my first year burning. I am looking to add to the cords with some downed oak trees from my inlaws yard this winter. I help my father n law drop the trees and he gives me the wood in return. Great deal all around. My goal is to get a couple years ahead but really don't know what a years worth of wood is until I burn an entire winter.
Name is also Steve and have the same problem.
Everybody, one...two....three....HIIIIII STEEEEEEVES.......
Okay guys, I'm working on stickers for the club so you can proudly proclaim your freekish firewood fanaticism to everyone from the back window of your truck. Hoping to have them ready before Christmas.........I'll keep you posted....
