    Spent about 4 hours yesterday splitting some of this up and got just over a cord from it. That was about 1/2 the wood there. Probably going to go back this weekend and get the rest. Split oak smells oh so good.

    I likes me some big rounds of oak. Makes lots of firewood - fast.

    That must have been a monster oak. Nice score!

    I'm wondering why they were cut so short? For sure that makes splitting a lot easier but also makes for a lot of sawdust gone and that part can't be burned.

    I did not do the cutting. Most are in the 16 inch range with some being 18 inches. The stump has got to be 36"+. Was going to take a pic of the stump with my MS660 with a 25" bar on it, but we were racing against the sun and traffic so that did not pan out. If I am there this weekend, I will measure the stump. Those rounds are some of the biggest ones I have ever dealt with. Tons of wood out of that thing.

    Another way to get an idea for how long the cuts were, is that I was able to put 5 rows in my truck bed that is 8' long with enough for two more logs stacked sideways behind the tailgate. Alright, now I am going to take the tape measure outside and measure them. Curiosity is killing me.

    Took 6 measurements of what was on top of the right side of the truck. Got two 14's, two 16's, a 17 and an 18. Should have put the shorter stuff in my dad's trailer since his stove needs 16 or less. My furnace can take 24" logs. I usually cut to 20 or 22 when I am bucking. Going to unload them tomorrow and stack them in a rack. They still smell good.
