    Well, I was hoping when I got back on here that the idea might have hit you by now. You have that trailer loaded with slab wood. You need something down for runners. Hum.... Connection? Put 2 slabs together and lay them down. Do that twice and you have your two runners for stacking! ;)

    Actually, I may take one of your other tips. The Leyland Cypress that fell over can offer me many 10-12' runners I can make a base with. The area is over gravel anyway, so the wood will be elevated. Kind of like your sapling idea! :) Hahaha....OR the slab idea works too! I burnt the chunks from splitting. This stuff IS dry.

    Sounds like you are on your way to having some good dry wood for next burn season & some oak seasoning for the year after that.
    All the work will pay off & maybe you won't ever experience burning wet wood.
    Your planning is working out well :)
