    We have had a few days of high wind this last week. This is the first small score so far.

    There were 4 of these - but i only managed to get 1 1/2 in my ute. Will get the rest tonight on the way home.;)

    The only way to break these big ones is to start on the outside edge and work around. It wasn't a bad one 3 hits and off we went.

    Yes they are all bucked like that - i get all my 'free' wood like this. I have never dropped a tree for firewood.;em

    I always carry a fiskas in the truck just in case i cant lift them into the back of the truck. Its a Ozzie hardwood - i'll let you know how good it is to burn in about 3 years time......;lol
