    Not having to cut the rounds in the woods, heft them into the trailer and figure how to snake the little tractor through the woods and up the hill to the house is CHEATING!

    Whoa Rooster, nice supply.

    I prefer to cut/split wood by myself. Gives me time to enjoy my surroundings and nature without feeling rushed or obligated to converse about nothing.

    Enjoy the peace, and heat.

    Pictures like that make me want to bang my head on the desk in frustration. One delivery like that every couple years would give me total independence from The Wood Man! My yard just won't accommodate such a delivery.

    Always with the comedy and compassion, eh BB?

    I just haven't placed wood delivery as my number one priority for a residence as of yet. Seems sort of masochistic when you think about it. ;)

    What is it that you have added sense the last time you posted pictures of the wood pile ? Is the log pile bigger than it was before ?

    I dont remember you saying in the other thread of how well your wood drys in the shade under the tree when i asked . My wood pile normally takes 9 months in the full sun all summer . I wondered how much the shade slows down the drying time.

    well so far so good the wood was cut split and stacked in may and i cut the pices small hopeing that would make drying faster.

    so far so good we had a lot of hot weather here in june july so i hope by oct it should be seasioned.

    i have about a cord of wood thats been sitting in the sun since march that i hand split so i will use that starting oct to december then i will use the stuff under the tree.

    so i should be ok. when i use to buy cord wood they would always give me wet wood so im sure this is all ready alot dryer then any wood ive had before. like the say if you want things done right you have to do it yourself :)

    thanks
    Jason
