    And I need to set out more pallets to stack! I will be around 9-10 in a month or so if I keep splitting! Nice to get ahead for a change!

    That's nice burntime. You no doubt know now one of the reasons we try to get done by May 1 if possible. It is much more comfortable working conditions then.

    I actually have been burning wood for 25 years from 14 on up. Just with 2 small kids I get at it when I can find the time... Heres the pic I promised. Each pile is 5.5 ft or better and 16 ft long. In case the pic is not resized well, there are rows on pallets... Saddly I have yet to aquire the journeyman skills of the expert wood stacker!!! :p

    What part of Wisconsin are you in? I'm just two hours away from Duluth/Superior. I could give you some free tutelage in the art of stacking. %-P

    Backwoods Savage might be closer to you and stacks a pretty nice pile too (or maybe his wife does). Highbeam might edge him out but he's further away.

    I am actually in a suburb of Milwaukee...the next county west in Waukesha. Any help is appreciated. Maybe you guys could all show up in about 30 days when I have another 2-3 cords to stack :)

    Leinenkugels may interest me :) Saddly I try but I lack the true expertise of over indulgence of beer drinking as well. Not to say I don't try from time to time :)

    Back when I was a teen (I looked older and never got carded in bars), drinking beer with some friends in Duluth, they got to bragging how they can drink a whole case. Now, American beer has less alcohol and their case is just a 12 pack. Canadian beer is stronger and comes 24 to the case. Anyway, I challenged them to come to Canada and I'd show them what real beer drinking was. We packed into their Volvo and drove to Thunder Bay where I drank them all under the table.

    Since I was the only one that wasn't passed out, I stuffed them back into their car and proceeded to drive them back to Duluth. When I got the the US border, they refused to let me cross (I was obviously drunk) so I turned around to head back to Canada but the Canadian border guard wouldn't let me take them and their car into Canada. I had to drag the car owner out of the back seat and slap him around to wake up and we parted company. I had to curl up in the ditch to sleep until daylight and then thumb a ride home.

    My personal best is snapping a rear axle and havine the wheel pass us up on the way home from the bar, proceeding to try and drive a bulldozer home and getting it stuck, then hitching a ride home and getting dropped off by a bunch of strippers. Ahhh, thoses were the days! :) Ok, well its all true except the strippers part, but the concept works after reading LLigetfa's story :lol:

    Leinenkugels has some great beer. I live about 3 miles away from the brewery and have toured it many times. They also have a welcome center where they serve you a couple free samples.

    I've had similar situations with people drinking my home brew. I had one work mate over to show him how to brew mead who also has a reputation as a big drinker, and after 2 hours of mead drinking he was passed out in my back yard.

    I hear mead is potent. Never tried it. If I want a real kick I switch to knob creek burbon. Smooooooth!!!

    Okay LLigetfa, my wife saw this post and said I had to answer it. She says there is no way in **!# she is going to stack all that wood or any of it. Seems she can't satisfy me. Gee, I didn't realize I was that particular.

    Wow. I walked past my maple piles, they are already cracking and checking! This week has been a light breeze and 90 plus degrees! I expected it to dry some but wow! Of course the pieces are still pretty heavy but wow, it may just be ready by October...
