    i called up and the lady did not think there was enough room to back a trailer in between the side of house and fence to get into backyard. and you have to dodge a few sprinkler heads in the process. but she has a wheelbarrow to use!

    and here is the $110 cords i mentioned.

    didnt sound that old and she seemed nice. let me know how bad it is. i was considreing taking a ride when i assumed i could get the trailer right next to the wood. she claimed they are putting up a fence and the stack was in the way. i almost asked "why not just move the wood 5 feet?" but i caught myself. they gotta be burners with the splitter there and all. people just dont give wood away like that, i dont get it...

    Around here that free oak firewood would have been gone 30 minutes after it was posted. I cannot believe that it is still there.

    Also around here the firewood in the CL ad would all be bought up by the rest of the firewood processors to re-sell it. I mean, if those are 'real' 4x4x8 cords, forget getting anything else! $110 for split oak? Cheap as chips!

    I wonder how that guy gets away with crossing state lines with non-kiln dried firewood. Getting hard to cross county lines here thanks to the DEC and EAB regulations, let alone state borders.

    No quarantine here yet, EAB hasn't made it quite this far south. Although it is coming.

    EAB fear is here. Oregon law as of the first of this year is no firewood from outside of Idaho, Washington or Oregon.

    So as much as I would like that pile of free oak... or to buy $110/cord oak... *sniff*

    Another master of intelligence idea, eh? A 10 ft. rental truck has 402 cu. ft. of cargo space. So you are saying load it up, floor to ceiling with wood... am I with you here? That truck has a capacity of just over 3 cords of oak by volume. 3 cords of half-dry oak is at least 5,000 pounds a cord. That would be over 15,000 pounds of weight, total. And you are going to load and haul 15,000 pounds of weight in a truck designed for to carry a mere 2,800 pounds? Less than 1/5th the capacity? <blink blink> Do I have that right? Assuming the truck likely has an axle loading capacity of 3,500 pounds, a typical size, you are still over 4 times its design limit.

    OK... so make that rental truck your bytch! I would venture to guess that you would wind up like any of these people at Home Depot. I mean, they might actually make it... someplace.
