    Sweet pile of stove chow you have there. Nice a tidy. If your anything like me, you will have to check your stack daily (with beer in hand), just to see how its doing.

    Well now I feel better. I use iced tea in place of beer though. Our pool sits right by my stack so i'll be tanning and watching the pile dry.

    Eric was taken in by a family of beavers as a baby. He is damming up his back yard.

    You don't want to know what my orthodontist's bills were like as a kid! Kept mom and dad busy trying to make ends meet.

    There's about 20 cords in that picture. That was last summer. By Fall I had about 35 stacked in that spot. Most of it is still there, but I did put a dent in it over the winter.

    Thanks for posting pictures of your wood.

    After reading many threads on how to stack I began to get a bit paranoid that I was doing it wrong - ie. wood too close together, stacks too high etc...My mind can be a scary place to put information without photo backups...

    Now I know my wood will do just fine as it is and I, too, can sit back and watch it crack. Actually I check out my stacks while I am picking up after our dogs. My husband looks at it with fear and trebulation that it will somehow take over our entire yard.....I love it and find it very relaxing and reassuring to gaze upon. :coolsmile:

    It's comforting to know we will be warm and our heat is prepaid... :)

    What is the thought on drying for the summer- should it be covered, or will that keep the sun from baking it more? I have a single but *100' long row stacked against a fenceline. Last season I used some greenhouse quality clear plastic over it. Worked well, but thought about buying some 6 x 20 grey tarps.

    *100' pending... I'll post a pic one of these days.

    For those of you wondering how my wood was seasoning, here's an updated pic. Amazing what some weather and time will do for a pile of wood. Haven't covered it yet, probably won't for a while. I think I'll bring a couple cord into the garage, then cover the other two that are left out there. I'll take from the outside woodpile as long as I can, then there'll be some dry stuff in the garage for the dead of winter......here it comes.

    Very nice guys, I stacked my wood in the wood shed so that I got a little cut out in the middle where I put a chair. That way I can sit and be one with my wood and drink my malted beverage. And my neighbors will not see me and think that I am weird or something....
