    The last few days have been warmer (50s-60) and clear---great for scrounging. Our friends across the street cleared more of their acreage---all oak and madrone. Hard to see from the pic, but he even limbed the trunks and pulled the logs towards the road w/his tractor for us. My neighbor and I pulled 2 loads last weekend (I stacked mine on pallets) Today I went and got another load (1st 3 pics). There are easily another 5-7 loads remaining of just the logs 12"+---that's if we don't pick thru the 6-8" stuff in piles. My trailer and truck together can haul ~1.25 cord each trip.

    That's the way to get ahead! You may be able to take a year off of scrounging after that score! Naaaaa!
