    Not the stash most of you folks have but it won't be cold in this house this winter.

    Red oak to feed the Englander and pine to feed the Jotuls.

    Yeah the big'un runs 24/7 most of the winter but the Jotuls just heat the office during the day and the small warehouse a few times a week. So somebody is around most of the time to feed the Jotuls. And on below thirty degree mornings we want them little puppies to get hot fast.

    Most of it was done in April and May. I would like to double the size of the stacks by the end of October to have a year ahead. I seriously don't see more than two more years of wood cutting in this old guy's future. Fortunately there is a commercial firewood processor a couple of miles from here. I have passed by there for twenty years and haven't stopped. I think this fall I will stop and introduce myself.

    The production effort is driven by AB Natural Light. Can't stand to take pills so no asprin involved. I have always figured that pain is natures way of telling you to stop doing something. And besides I have enough pills in my future I bet so I ain't starting yet.

    Well then my back is draining a ton of weakness out of my body every day. How long before I will be able to bench press a Volvo?

    BB then you completely understand my obsession get as much ahead as possible so that if I slow down I can prolong the envitable

    Plus if a Slow down, I have seasoned wood ahead and can last a bit longer, just replacing what I use, though at a slower pace.

    The excitement grows thin after 30 plus years of doing it. It becomes more and more a chore.
