    when you're hot, you're hot! How long do you think I would take you to buck and split that monster?

    funny how things happen in bunches isnt it? I picked up 2 full trailer loads of oak a few weeks ago and while I was driving home my neighbor saw me hauling the logs. He stopped by and asked if I wanted at least 2 cords of maple sitting in his backyard that he wont be burning.

    Damn!!! Nice score. I am getting very itchy. I have not picked up my saws in at least three months. These cool temps want me to get cutting and splitting. However I have no product. My eyes are open but nothing coming this way.

    I am sitting on three years worth, but of course it's never enough!

    However, when it rains it pours. I'm ready.

    Hey, you've almost caught up already. Keep it going!!! You will like that beech too. If you split by hand, then do not split through the heart. It can be done but beech splits better on the sides.
