    Today I went and got a great load of Ash, Maple and pine we filled a Ford F-150 right up ! It was just laying in the home owners back yard and had been for so long it dried right out :) Thanks wishlist for the heads up ! Almost everything from 2 feet under the tarp over to the pile on the right of the steaks was today.

    By the way I owe you more beer for that one Wishlist ! That was a lot of wood ;lol

    We got all the good stuff and made a F-150 squat in the process ! That particular truck does not squat usually and we really pack it full too. Dave is right I owe you a whole batch or keg for that haul there was at least 200 worth if I bought it split.

    My neighbor had a full gazebo of wood but no fireplace or wood stove to burn it in, just a css horder. Stuff's been there for decades now. He finally let us at it this summer and within a few hours, with the help of my other neighbor's rhino, it was on my property. Some of it was so old, it was dust when you tried to pick it up! Gazebo's full of wood are good, if ya burn it :)

    I was amazed when I got up. Stepped out on the porch and it really felt warm. Was amazed when I looked at the thermometer. Maybe I'm just getting used to the cold... Now it is supposed to warm up quite a bit before the next blast of cold hits us.

    Thanks Ed I should be ok the glass came out clean but my hand did swell up good. It has gone back to normal size now but I won't be swinging a maul for another week or two. Go get it Ed I found that people mostly don't want the rounds in there yards unless they have a stove or bonfire. Most of the time they say to get it. Can't hurt to ask !

    Pete
