    As the title says... I'm bored, waiting for snow and or cold weather.


    Fill er up put it in low range and take it to the drying stacks

    Some of the blocks were huge. It only took 10 blocks to fill this load.

    This is possibly the worst way to leave popalar for 6 monthsThey must have gained about 20 lbs per block!
    It was all I could do to roll them up a plank on to the splitter.

    I think your truck sucks.






    ah hell, that's just me being jealous. What motor you got in there? Inline 4 or 6 I presume? Pics of motor? I love those old Willys trucks and jeeps.

    If you stay bored, you'll have enough CSS fire wood for several years :)

    Nice splitter, needs painted to match the truck ;)

    That's the hope. Right now I have about 11 cord of hard wood, 2 1/2 cord of popolar, and 1 1/2 cord of spurce.
    So 15 cords in total. Not bad considering I didn't get my first stick delivered until last March
    I'm thinking I'll need 5-6 cords per season, so the boredom goes on!

    When I look at the Willys, I can't help but think of a relative who drove one of these for many years. Not sure if he still has it or not but probably does. I also once owned a Willys car; one of the few they ever made.

    Love the truck! I had a '53 when I was a kid. Bought it for a dollar with big plans. All I have now is the owner's manual and the tailgate. In 1988 I went my my senior prom in my buddy's '59 Willys Wagon.

    Okay the weather here is continueing to suck!
    No snow, just flurries.
    It is strange when you can split and stack wood in your T shirt in Oct, little own do it on Dec 20th!
    Tomorrow is Winter Solstise and it doesn't look like winter will be here for while yet.
    I now have all my wood CSS, and was so bored today I called a nieghbor to see if he needed any big ones done.
    1 hr at his place and I'm out of wood to play with.
    I guess I'll go change the oil on the splitter and put it away for the winter.
    Here is the last load on the way to be stacked.
    Time to put the plow on it and wait for winter.

    If last winter and the start to this one are any indication, I won't be needing it much.
    I only needed it twice last winter. I put the plow on it today because I was bored.

    Well winter has finally showed up. Here is the truck clearing off the area where I was splitting the wood in Dec.
    We got about 12" Monday, and a further 12-15" coming this Saturday.
