    Good to hear some recent posts from you LLigetfa, I have not seen many in awhile. It must be winter time. Dennis I think I must have been one of the first to notice you were burning 2009 wood. It made me feel like I am actually getting ahead since we are in the same boat. From now own I will know how it feels to be way ahead since I now have about 20 cords. I guess it only gets better. I have been enjoying some nice fires with the cherry and maple. Cannot wait to get to the Locust, Oak, Beech and Hickory.

    Golf, I think you might be the only one to comment on it and that did surprise me a bit. I figured I'd get razzed over that one. However, yesterday I put more wood on the porch and rather than taking from inside the shed I brought up some more of the older stuff. We still have about 2/3 of a cord of the older wood left but then it will be all from 2009. I think I also miscalculated on how much wood I have on hand. I'll check that later today just because I am curious. Seems the memory is slipping a bit here. I guess that is part of being a senior citizen (or old fart).

    You will indeed love it when you get way ahead. It is something difficult t describe but it really gives me a great feeling when I look on our wood piles. A lot different feeling than when you only have maybe 2 or 3 cord piled up. It maybe is sort of like looking over your finances and seeing that stash you've put away.

    Then again I also understand you guys already got several inches of snow . . . guy at the local Skidoo dealership down here was up in your neck of the woods playing in the snow this past weekend on ATVs. I love riding and camping in the County . . . but have to admit that I kind of like holding on to Fall a little later and getting a jump on Spring a bit earlier.

    I agree . . . except for his stance on splitting wood. I still like splitting wood the way God intended us to . . . on our two feet with the splitter in the horizontal position . . . otherwise just about everything else Dennis says is golden. ;) :)
