    20' off the road (not uphill for once). All oak I think. Super heavy. About 4 more truck loads left but don't think I can lift most of them by myself. Everything cut nicely at 18"

    Take an 8' - 2" X 8" with you & use it for a ramp to roll them on the truck;)

    You need to find the big stuff "up-hill " from the road & roll it right on the tail gate. :)

    Great score/find ;ex

    Lol, was thinking might bring my splitter with me but I know he has small children and don't want to bother them. It's a shame, a lot of wood left
