    My wife and I scrounged some wood that I've been meaning to get for a while. Mostly black birch that has been chunked and laying for 2 years. It was damp with mushrooms but when I split it, it seemed good and it was light in weight so burns decent. I have it in the basement to finish off for a few weeks. Afterwards, my nephew and I went out the old RXR tracks and found some great wood that was down. We also found an ash tree that was dead standing for a few years. It blew down about a week ago and turned out to be some great wood. I should get about a cord out of it which will prolong the time I have to start burning my greener wood. Here are a few shots while I was working and having the wood wagon hooked up to the Nissan.

    Nice trailer. Kinda looks like an old Bantam Army trailer. I bet it's great for taking off road to get wood.

    The trailer was a freebee from a coworker. I figure its 70 or so years old. It is all wood except the metal supports and the axle. The tongue is wooden as well. I need to add a gate to it but other than that, it works well.
