    Moving - had to sell all my wood - 15 cords that I hand split and didn't get the pleasure of burning! I had to wipe away tears as the truck pulled away with the 9 cords of oak!

    My new place - has a stinking heatilator gas log - GAG me! I'll have to replace that and start all over again!

    Here's my stacks in all there glory. May my neighbors enjoy it's warmth!

    Beautiful yard. I probably would have paid a moving company to bring 2 trucks. 1 for the contents of the house and the second for all that wood. Sad day indeed, okay to cry, just dont do it over the wood.
    Starting all over sucks, but I'm sure you'll find the perfect stove.

    So I'm guessing your move was far enough that it wasn't worth moving the wood. Looked great, and I'm sure you will do it again.

    Booooo! Sad to hear your story and the fact that the wood only heated you ONCE... Like others have said you will surely bounce back but of course will take a couple years to catch up. Post some pics when the stove arives. ;)

    Those stacks were glorious. Wonder how many swings of the maul it took to make 'em. I bet in a few years your new stacks will be even bigger & better.
    No shame in shedding a tear though.

    That pic is from this summer or today? We haven't had leaves in the trees for well over 3 months!

    shoot, if i had 15 cords of wood in my yard I wouldn't move unless there were 20 at the new place. Otherwise, what is the point?

    Sad indeed. Black Friday came early for who ever you sold to.

    Think positive - now you get to start a new. You have likely learned a lot and a fresh start provides a chance to apply all of it, right from the beginning.

    Man that is a bummer! You had lots of sweat equity in that amount of wood.. Hope the new place works out for you! Did you move far away and had to sell the wood?

    Sorry for your loss....that really sucks!

    My best friend and cutting partner moved this summer, he has almost as much wood as I do. I told him if he left that wood behind or sold it, I would kill him........

    So he moved the wood to his new house. ;)

    Yeah - that's a summer time pic. Moving from NJ to Atlanta. Not even sure I will need a wood stove in HotLanta. Work is moving me.

    Loved the responses - especially amazing grace! Good stuff. I knew you guys would understand. Yeah - the minute the for sale sign went up - my wood burning neighbors were asking about my stacks. They left smiling ear to ear. :) Well it was good exercise and fun anyway.

    You had a very nice looking yard and woodstack. It must be a tough move for you. It is VERY apparent you had a lot pulled together in NJ. A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Well Congrats on the Job move. Sorry to hear about having to liquidate all the wood, but all the memories will keep you warm at heart. And someone got some "seasoned" wood. Good Luck.
