    Been working on next years supply. Have about 2 cord that were put up last year for 2012-2013 and adding to it.

    I spent today skidding out a bunch of walnut tops out from the thornbushes and into the open for easy cutting and loading.

    I had to bulldoze a pathway onto the hill on our farm where most of the tops are a few weeks ago in order to get my truck up there.

    Got two loads of walnut out so far. This was cut a few weeks ago and loaded today. My trusty old '76 Dodge took care of it with ease.

    Low 20's at night here, we were in the mid 40's today. Had to take off the thin orange coat I had on, great weather for cutting.

    Thanks, I love the old girl. It has a big block in it right now but I am considering putting a Cummins in it out of a parts truck that I got recently.

    It also has a secret weapon for fighting firewood that comes in rather handy. :cheese:

    It is or was available as a kit. I can't take credit, previous owner installed it but I am reaping the benefit.

    Chargerman, it is much nicer when you have the right tools to get the job done and it appears you did very well.

    Spent the better part of today cutting up most of the walnut in the pictures from last weekend. The road I put in a while back is a little steep.

    Made it to the top with the help of my dog Zoe, she is a husky chow mix and loves playing in the woods.

    I have a bunch more to load up but I did have enough energy left to get one rather large load of walnut out. This stuff was green to so it worked the old Dodge a little bit. Had to take it slow coming down the hill.

    That is a wicked cool truck. Drop a 12V under the hood and it would be...i don't know...whatever is better than wicked cool.

    I don't know about stacks but this will likely end up under the hood after wood hauling is done for the year. Its got a 5 speed behind it too. After today l will be putting the W350 Dana 70 rear, springs, and overloads in also, that should take care of any firewood I need to haul.
