    Well I've been busy. Too busy to post all the changes in my wood burning career!! So finally I've got some time, It's snowing. Well I sold the Harman tl 300 to my in laws and got a drolet ht2000. Also been getting alot of wood. And decided to try out some different ways to move wood around with my new toy the toro dingo. Got 10 of the tote tanks for 40.00 and going to try them out. Just don't know how it's going to work with them only holding about .25 cord. Well look at the pics and see what you think. Sorry it looks like a firewood tornado came threw!! Pat

    The wood I'm working on is locust and elm.
    This wood will be for 2-3 years down the road.

    Curber, Nice to see the hardwood in Idaho. I have a dream to move outside of Boise someday, and I was under the impression that I would be only getting soft woods, if I moved there.

    Yeah there is hardwood in town/ landscape trees. The funny thing is that the tree services don't want the wood hear for some reason. Oh well I get alot of ash elm locast and others!!

    The harman was a little time consuming getting it going. In laws wanted it so they got it for the same second hand price I got it for. I hope the racks will work. Pat

    The dingo will move pallets of the lighter wood around fine. The full metal cage of the wet elm it wont tho!! I'm thinking it will loose weight quick tho. I love the dingo.

    I love the new stove. Much faster to get cruising. Not near as finicky as the harman. Also think I'm using less wood witch is a good thing. Pat
