    Since there is the long post your mug shot I think order is due to the great vehicles that we use to chase the btu sticks down with and bring them home. Only show it if you got it loaded though or it really does not count(should help on the cheating pictures) :lol:

    Here's mine both ways; note the dragging mudflaps when piled with black locust. That was probably a ton load, well over Ranger 4x4 specs.

    '79 Dodge Prospector. Don't know what I'd do without her. She still runs and is great for the scrounging and trips to the dump!

    Pulldown I be you do not get know where near as upset when you drop a split on the side of your Dodge as I do with mine :)

    There are times often I would like to have my old 1985 2500 chevy with the 292 manual trans for doing this kind of work. Get-r-Done

    That's what I'm saying, you just can't beat having an old beat up truck (until it breaks down of course) for this kind of work. I don't know what I'm going to do when she dies. I can't imagine throwing wood into a new truck! :ahhh:

    I'll probably have to get another old beater..... :)

    Yeah, I miss my 79 Power Wagon, but not the parts bills. Last fix-up session ran me 1200 bucks. Now I use the wagon with a 4x8 trailer, will get some pics tomorrow when it's full. I treat the station wagon like it's a 2-WD F-150, which it really is, under the Clark Griswold exterior. Even got a set of chains for it this year. My storage piles are in the woods behind the house, I try to keep the pile in the driveway "topped up" as long into winter as I can. I can stack 12 cords or so in the driveway, and try to keep 1 cord in the basement.

    Well, it's 1/2 loaded - does that count? I took a break last time I was backed up to one of my favorite hedge rows and snapped some photos.

    Front view - those tall bed sides really swallow up the wood.

    Here's my hauler last fall. Its a 6x10 trailer with sides custom built by me. Forget what was in this load exactly. The F-350 in the background is for sale if anyone is interested in a good farm/plow/parts/beater truck. :)

    Here's what I used this weekend. My '96 Cherokee w/ a 4'x12' borrowed trailer. It was pretty sweet, no picking up logs to the height of my truck bed.

    I like the idea many of you use trailers than trucks. I would have a difficult time getting to my wood pile with out a truck in winter conditions.

    I ran my own lawn company in SW Fl. for ten years and have seen enough lawns to satisfy me for many moons. I do miss the freedom it provided being self employed.

    I must say as well I have been a stay at home dad now for 6 years.
