    This morning I brought a load of wood to a customer. He was quite excited about how much he got (i usually load a little extra) and went to tell his neighbor. She placed an order on the spot:cool:. Went home to load up again (both loads deliveries were 1/3 cord). I decided to bring the trailer the second time. Well on the way i took a turn off my road a little tight and the trailer dipped off the edge and this happened:eek:

    Unloaded the trailer half into my truck and half into my fathers trailblazer. I got the tire back up under the rim as best I could and nursed it home at about 10mph haha.Luckily we were only about a mile from home. Dropped the trailer and headed out to deliver. Got the wood delivered safe and sound finally and made two happy customers :)

    Then since my rack/shed/shelter was empty and sad looking I started moving some red oak into it. Got it most the way filled up

    And a little cottonwood i split earlier this week:

    All in all a productive day:cool:

    Aside from the tire thing, sounds like a fun day.
