    Got my membershp to "The Get It Before It Rots Club" in the mail this week. I had to meet a lot of strict criteria in order for me to obtain this, and I have to do a lot to retain the membership. One thing I have to do is get all my downed trees up and bucked and then I have to stay at it so that nothing rots or else the membership will be forfeited. This winter I have more than met the goal and I am now working on more. Pictured below are two shagbark hickories that I got up off the ground today. If I would not have found this site they would more than likely still be laying there. They would have rotted.

    Hickory burns so well. But I am amazed at how fast it will rot if left on the ground. I have one I can have that blew over but I have no room for it and really don't need it now so I'm leaving it where it is because it is still about 4 ft off the ground and should last quite awhile that way. I'll get the other wood on the ground first like your doing.

    They gave you a second membership after they revoked your first one;?

    That would have been sacrilege, and caused a massive rift in the fabric of our wood burning world.
    You've done well, young Jedi wood burner.
    Or, something like that.
    Nice haul. Go gibir.:cool:

    Kind of looks like you got it just in time. Darker color looks like it was getting punky.
    Maybe not, good haul there.
