    Mulberry & Hard Maple?
    Lookin good anyway. It is a great feeling to get ahead on wood. Even 1 year ahead makes a huge difference. Well, unless it's oak that is.

    Getting ahead is the hardest part . Staying ahead is comparatively easy . You're doing well , keep it up !

    Thanks. It would be so much easier but the kids always come first. I,m teaching my little one how to stack the wood and once all 3 get bigger my stacks will last me for years...

    My first year of heating with wood I spent the winter cutting and using the dead and driest wood for the present year and everything else I put aside for the following,by the end of the season I was a year ahead.It was a lot of work but was worth the effort,now I have wood for several years and it doesn't seem as bothersome to process wood if I tackle a little at a time.

    It is a very comfortable, satisfied feeling once you have gotten ahead with the stacks. Money in the bank! And gets more valuable as it ages.

    I'm trying to do the same as you. I'll have a few extra cords once my neighbor takes down his 3 maple trees

    Family always comes first . Enjoy this time that you get to spend with them , it goes faster than you might think .
    Our daughter has been in the A.F. For 10 years now. She's been stationed in Korea, and now the UK for the last few years . Her absents (sp) is most keenly felt this time of year . Both Jan and I are retired A.F. , so we understand . But, it doesn't make it any easier. So, takes lots of pics of your kids, hug them and tell them how much you love them .
    Sorry for getting OT! Just had to get that off my chest .:)
