Keep it dry and it will last longer than you.

I have some oak that's been stacked outside for 5 years with the top of the stack covered, ain't nothin' wrong with it....
in fact, tell your neighbor I'll bop him upside the head with a split and then he can comment as to whether it's rotted or not.
Also wanted to add a couple years ago I burned some locust post that was buried for 50+ years.
I'm currently burning my cedar deck that was rained and snowed on for 18 years. No rot, burns hot
haha, you mean it wasn't even coverd???
Nope. And it faced north, didn't even get much sun.
Saw a show a while back on those houses, apparently the water level dropped and some of the piles are rotting, as long as the water table stays up, they're ok.
Interesting. I didn't know that the water table had dropped. Make sense though that they started rotting.
Yeah I guess there is a lesson in there for us. Either completely dry or completely saturated, like waterlogged. Anything in between encourages microorganisms to grow and eat your stash.
