    Been working in the woods for the last few weeks.
    Took down 3 damaged Oak and several damaged Maple. Most is c/s/s, but still almost a cord remain to get done.
    This is from this morning (well, I put it out there yesterday).
    When these piles are done, I'll have put up a cord of Oak and about 2 cord of Maple from the property.
    Should have been doing this the last couple years......I wouldn't have needed to be out there right now.:mad:
    I'd still like to get some more from my SIL's place. That may be happening in about a week or so.
    I'll do pics if it happens.

    Just came in from splitting about 1/2 trailer load of the Oak.:cool:
    Got 1/3 cord of Maple s/s earlier today. Brought some Poplar back to the splitter that I've had cut for a few days. No hurry on that.;)

    Dave, I swear one of these days I have to drive over there to show you how to split wood! ;) Do you have a milk crate?

    Good for you for getting that stuff. Lengthens the time before you need to buy a log load.
