I ran into a guy at the grocery store that told me he had seasoned birch for 200 a cord. I told him I would take 2 cords as that is a great price. He came to my house with a short bed PU full of nice looking splits. He then explained that he has a 1 ton with a 4 x 8 x 8 bed but it was broke down. (side note, His short bed had a well stacked 4x2x6 load in it). He then told me that he figured it would be about 3 and 1/2 loads in his short bed to make a cord. Then he said he didn't like hauling 1/2 loads so he would bring 4. He then hoped in his truck with the load still in it and left. I had to return to work that day so I kind of blew off the wood guy as a moron. As i got home I saw a nice pile of wood. My wife told me he had pulled in and unloaded 8 good loads of wood and never came up to the house. The next day he came by and asked for his $400. I politely explained that he had hauled 3+ cords to my house, paid him $600 and a few copper river red fillets. He left quite happy. For his sake I sure hope he gets his big truck fixed soon.
