    Looks good oppirs. Plenty of heat once its seasoned. My one concern is in the background I see a broken splitter pointing towards the sky? :eek::eek::eek:

    Info on this pick, a land-owner sold his timber this was what the buyer rejected. Nice 10' footers stacked, that land-owner called me to take it off his hands. A Win-Win!

    Good eye's ////\\\\ That splitter is on it last legs after this work-out! Not! A 21 ton 2 stage doing it job. But I feel the work-out. Only half the wood taken. I think another 5 cords are in order....

    Thanks everyone. This was an out of the blue score. Owner sold his Ash/Oak/Maple. And I didn't even have to deal with the tops. More rejects than I can handle, so other wood-user are gettin' a stab at this in my area. It's a free for all.

    This kind of work-out beats the gym....Now to stacking!

    Wow Oppirs. That is a super find! Don't worry about Wishlist and his statement about the vertical splitting. He just likes to pick a bit. Vertical is the easiest way to get wood split so continue on.

    The only question I have is why all the separate piles of split wood? Is there a reason you don't split all in one spot?

    What we do is cut during December-March. We do sort of stack it in one spot in the winter then do all the splitting in the spring. When finished, we simply stack the wood right there rather than moving it again.

    That is an outstanding cache of firewood-to-be! Very nice find, oppirs. Makes me sore all over ("but it's a good sore") just looking at your pictures, heheh.

    I have to pile on - nice grab on that wood. Will c/s/s into a nice bunch of heat. Well, it won't actually c/s/s itself. But you know that...

    Wow Oppirs, Nice location! You sling any lead at any whitetails across that field?
    By way of 30-06 or shotgun?
    also love the big rounds on that trailer, yep, take what you can get. Never found a round I couldn't get split.
    Nice work.

    @ BS... No real reason to the multi-stacks, just how the wood rolled off and to fit the trailer on my land which is 1 acre. Made it easy to pull the splitter around to each group of rounds. All the girls got to feast on the ants, didn't want the goodies buried to deep.

    @ Aussiedog... Thx for the comment! I don't sling lead like I use too. But Buck a plenty, pix just up to the North.

    Looks like the yellow one is a mix of Buff Orpington and Aracuena. Are her eggs a bit greenish or light blue colored?
