    Three loads in my long bed Toyota filled my wood rack(two rows deep), I think I should have split this a little smaller. All the long pieces on the right are Oak strips from the cabinet shop, I still need to cut up into smaller kindling size. This didn't put a dent in the wood supply I have stored at my shop (cutting area).

    Happy Birthday Dennis. I was thinking of you and the others here today. I was outside stacking wood. Hauled PU load of dry stuff and put it in the garage for easy access. It is the maple I c/s/s last year in October. Just got the Sirocco 30 installed Monday night. Had a fire Tuesday morning so I could get ready for work with my hearing protection earmuffs on to muffle out the smoke detectors going off due to paint curing. The detectors quit about 5 minutes before I left for work and they have not gone off since. Came home Tuesday night to a toasty warm house. So far I am loving the stove. I am a little concerned that my burn times don't seem as good as the Princess, but that may be due to the wood I am burning (species and H2O content possibly). Screwed up and made my hearth about 4" too short so I have a bit more work to do before I can get it inspected. I will post pics in a day or two.

    That is a little misleading as the temperatures still get up fairly good in the day time, we are having weather like that now.

    Interesting way of stacking on the ends. That is still a lot of good hard work. Congratulations.

    Thanks Bill. Interesting weather forecast you have, but that is pretty normal for this time of the year. Get ready, you'll be shoveling quite regularly very soon. When you aren't shoveling, you can add on to the hearth. Good luck with the stove and I hope it is a good one for you.

    I still need to find something for the ends, thus my embarrassing wood pile.

    The East forty tends to collect unloved vehicle, not sure who it belongs too?

    Can't believe the car survived. In Lubbock back in the seventies we used to joke that you could stop at a red light in Amarillo and when the light changed your T-4 four speed would be missing. ;lol

    Certainly no need to be embarrassed over your wood pile. As for the ends, experiment a bit over time until you find what works best for you. I just happen to like the cribbed ends which make a wood pile look good and is strong too. Besides, the cost is zero.

    Good start. Was some of that cut by a friendly beaver?

    Looks that way, but I'm not sure if we have Beavers in Amarillo, TX.

    I'm pretty sure you have beavers there - never been there but range is correct. Cheers!

    I almost loaded that entire tree, not sure the wood type but it's very heavy/green.
