    Made another run to the farm that had been timbered a year back. Got a full load of about half cherry and half oak. This will be used for winter 2014-2015. The yet to be split stacks are two truck loads, I stacked them on wood poles I cut from the woods to keep them off the ground until I get to splitting them! Its almost 60 degrees here, crazy, but makes for nice cutting weather.

    I love going to this farm, I pick exactly what I want, cut it to the size I want, and leave the rest. I will be very sad when I can no longer go get wood from there!

    The already split wood is my wood for next winter, feels great having that done every time I look at it!

    Nice work jwoair23. Nice truck too. You will find other sources of wood. A wood burner such as yourself always does. Have a good one.

    A pretty place to go relax & cut wood.
    Yea, you're gonna miss it when it's done, something else may pop up though.
    Enjoy the time there .
    Nice stacks :)

    jwoair, I would hesitate to burn that oak in 2014-2015 for sure. Even if you plan on burning it the following year, it needs to be split and stacked right away so it can start the drying process. I'd also split really small if you plan on burning it in 2 years.
