    Hes probably thinking the grocery store bundles sell for about $5 and these are the same amount of wood.

    ... and they probably are. But those are kiln-dried split hardwood, not green rounds.

    Where we are many of the gas stations sell pine that isn’t all that seasoned (usually 6 months or so) and they are charging $7 for a bundle of 4-5 extremely small splits; they’re making out pretty well I’d say.

    I see it all the times. I've been trying later to humor myself with ads like this:
    https://offerup.com/item/detail/555358977/

    Why bother to buy new $17 cord at HD, if you can drag your ass to stranger house and buy used one for $20

    Wow that first one has me scratching my head. Just add a car battery to your stove to keep your hot water heater going? Really?

    At least it's free.

    On a Facebook buying and selling group, someone posted this last week, but I've seen it a few times in the last couple months. I finally had to share. I can't tell if the picture is showing what they think a "quart" is or just showing some of the wood. I don't think they honestly know its called a cord. Doesn't inspire confidence. Either way I don't think that I would ever pay $120 for a "quart" of wood. Maybe a gallon?

    I love the ones offering free stumps for firewood. You must dig up and haul away that 800 monster. Or they want trees taken down, but U keep the wood. FOR FREE! In dangerous places too. Last one I saw I kept emailing, they finally quit since no one will do the work for FREE

    Do NOT mess with the man's "GREEN pail". It is under heavy surveillance.

    No detail as to what the slandered sizes are or what was said about them.

    Would sort of like to know what Chainsaw Detailing Service they had come out to clean and detail that saw for the photo.

    I think I remember reading that this model doesn't draft well.
