    I had to laugh..;lol ...I'm just bustin' his nuggets a little....;)
    If he'd been on the forums a little longer and did some creeping in the wood shed, he'd have NEVER even posted that ad. He don't realize we're all firewood junkies!!

    Hell yeah!!

    As for free wood. If someone in the area, really needed it, and it was known that there were issues that were beyond there control? I would and have been known to donate wood.

    But an able bodied man, that lives in an area, that has trees (read:EVERYWHERE) then where there is a will, there is a way ;)

    Scrounging. It's work..... But work that's well worth it. (I try not to anymore, but sometimes it's to good to be true. Who can pass on Free Wood!!)

    +1 vote for scrounging! It is so rewarding in knowing that the last 2-3 hours of impromptu wood work, just saved you a couple hundred dollars off of some future heating bill.

    If that guy has a pickup and can come get your slabs or whatever, he can chase down the utility crews too.

    Actually, he doesnt say that he wants firewood...he wants "slab wood" . I have seen some cool slab wood wood sheds - maybe thats what he's up to?

    At some point, every one of us was a "newb". What's the point with all the making fun of him and chest-thumping? Why not welcome him and invite him to the Wood Shed for a while to get a feel for what goes on here? Is this the way you were treated when you first posted here? If so, why did you stick around? Rick

    I approved that thread as it reminded me of the words of wisdom the father of a friend shared when I was a kid: "Always ask the prettiest girls out first, you might get surprised, and if not, you still have options."

    There was a guy that posted on the C List here looking for wood. I offered him a pallet bin full of "uglies" just come and get. All dry and fine to burn, just they don't fit in my stove that great so I use that stuff for campfires.

    He messaged me back that he wanted actual split logs and more or less it was too much work for him to come get it. :eek:

    I still see advice here.... And Criticism and Sarcasm are dealt out daily.....

    This is a good group and and as I said above, if someone truly needed wood. I would and HAVE donated wood to those that need it. ;)

    I'm just jealous, of you haorders, I only have good intentions but am out of flat space to stack! These "vertical" acres up the cliffs were nice when we moved in but wood don't stack well on 45 degree angles!

    If I could, I'd love to give him my neighbors unseasoned oak that he continues to burn...

    Rick, nobody is making fun of him. You know how it is around here......:rolleyes:;)

    And like Dex said, if he really NEEDED the wood (health and/or medical reasons, etc), and was local enough to me, I'd be one of the first in line to help the guy out.....:)

    I just had to chuckle because we see ads like that every day on Craigslist.....and this being a forum FULL of guys who dream of getting free firewood, well, just the irony of the ad.......we just couldn't let that ad go unnoticed.....::P

    What if he put a post on what a horrible president Obama was on his first day in the forums........the guys in the ash can would've eaten him ALIVE!!;lol;)

    Sounds like you need to get the hubster to make you some terraced woodstacks. There was a great post a while back where another member did this.....and it worked out really nice! Now, getting the wood UP to the stacks was a PITA, but getting it back down to the house wasn't so bad!

    Oh yes, I do know how it is around here. But he doesn't.

    I see where you are coming from........
    I'd be here with open arms for the guy......I think you know that. If he shows up, I'll PM him and tell him it was all in jest.....just lightening up the mood a little.....;)

    I don't think that anyone has been run off because of this thread. By now everyone that visits message boards from time to time expects a little ribbing now and then. If anything this thread pokes more fun at those of us wood pile ocd than the new guy looking for wood.
