    Just want to welcome you to the forum KBart.

    Keep on getting good stuff like that and you'll be a happy camper. Only one bad thing about BL and that is the smell it can give when it is burning. Go outdoors on one of those days when the smoke is hanging low to the ground and you'll not doubt what you are burning. Surely gives great heat though.

    I thought I would get a bunch of loads out of there but as I'm loading my truck two trucks pull up with trailers and clean up. At least I got two loads.

    That stuff grows like weeds around the roads. Walnut too. Shouldn't be hard to find more if you keep your eyes open. May want to contact a couple tree service companies to see if they would drop at your door step. You may be surprised.
