    I've been talking about going to my SIL's place for quite a while, but hadn't made it.....until yesterday.
    Cut one 12"ish slightly punky oak. Some of it for her, and some for me.

    Also cut a small downed oak for her, and started on another 12"ish.
    Tons of stuff on the ground that's still in good shape, and a bunch of leaners that I plan to take down.
    I may have hit a goldmine.
    ETA: I actually did make one other trip over there a few weeks ago, but only brought back a very small amount of maple in the back of her Liberty.

    Here's a couple more shots. First is the small barkless oak (solid) I cut for her.

    This is the 2nd larger oak. The first 4' decided to take a little stroll.
    This one was taken down by the surveyors and fell into the adjacent state land.

    That barkless Oak almost looks like you could burn it,almost! That's a nice mix PapaDave, trade you some Cherry for Oak. ;)

    milleo, my brother borrowed the utility trailer to take his quad out to hunting camp, so I have to make do for a couple trips.
    Back of the Jeep was starting to squat a little, so I quit loading.
    zap, the barkless tree will no doubt dry sooner than normal once split. I should take the MM with me. It's an old ligno that was meant for lumber.
    I've been cutting her stuff @ 11-12" (small stove).......what a pain. >>

    Nice deal, PD. Looks like there'll be plenty wood to keep you busy there.

    If you're looking for work, I know a guy who's renovating this living room.............:p

    You're becoming quite the scrounger.
    Free wood keeps adding up, you'll be way ahead & save some $$

    No, no deer camp for me. Tried it a couple season many,.....many moons ago. Decided it wasn't for me.
    Sold the rifle, but now wish I'd kept it.
    Dave, yep. I've gotten 30 cord in log loads, but that's tough this year for us.
    This year is going well so far with scrounging. I'd like to get another couple cord c/s/s before the weather closes in.
    I may not need to order any like I thought I would.:cool:
