Yes, that's about the same situation/conditions as me. We live in the part of WI called the Central Sands, it's all pure sand and I live on high ground. My bigger piles have also been stacked in the same place for many years, so have a layer of bark, wood chips, etc. under them. But that's right, all of the wood isn't touching the ground like some of the worry-warts would seem to imply, only the bottom (sacrificial) layer. Everything above the bottom is elevated, just like everybody else. 23 cord is a good bunch of wood. I've never precisely measured all of mine, but I would say there's that much or more at any given time.
