    Time to repair/replace that trailer. Missing too many opportunities like that will lead to expensive counseling.

    Its funny.....I check c/l everyday for the last year.....never/never have i seen free oak in this area...always free pine, which I have scrounged on occasion.
    So, busted axle, and a week later possibly 2-1/2 cords of oak within 5 miles of me.....I gotta go out and save someone or something as I must have some bad karma goin on :)

    Can you transport if you are in the zone? i.e. if the wood is in the zone, and you are also in the zone, can you pick it up? Or is it you can't move it at all?

    No. Term 5 of the ALB order specifically says:

    "No Person shall harvest, cut, move, carry, transport or ship (or authorize or allow any other Person to do the same) Regulated Articles within or outside of the Affected Area during the Quarantine Period, unless specifically authorized in writing by the Commissioner of the Department of Conservation and Recreation."

    Here is the website link for anyone wondering about the Worcester County ALB Quarantine program:

    I found in South Jersey its best to check several times a day. Good scores don't last more then an hour or so. Funny though, my last score never made craigs list and sat for nearly two weeks before the homeowner contacted me.
