Finally made it over to Sav's and picked up a truck load of pine that Dennis donated for the maple syrup evaporator. Had a great time, weather was perfect. Low 20's and nothing but sunshine. Dennis has plowed his trails thru the woods and Pallet Pete and I went for a nice tour of the property. Dennis did a nice job plowing ( didn't hit any of his numerous woodpiles zap) and walking was easy. Now here's the problem! I was all set to split the pine when I got home and my thoughts were not to violate the "wood hoarders code" so I would do the unthinkable and split this stuff vertical seeing how this wood came from a vertical splitter residence. I know, I must have hit my head on a low branch today, who splits vertical anyways? Well, here's the kicker! I only had a BLUE milkcrate. What to do now? Sun is setting soon so I confess and split this wood up as " normal" people do. Hope it doesn't give me bad karma or something? What do you all think? What would you have done? Blue milkcrate really caused anxiety today! On another note, Dennis is absolutely everything we all see on here. Willing to share anything, help anyone, tells some great stories, just a class act! I do think he should change his signature tho, his wife doesn't have a mean bone in her body! Ornery? Your wrong on that one my friend.
