up at my little weekend house in the mountains, my buddy just recently had a new home built right next to his. ever since it was completed i have had my eye on the logs that were left behind after clearing the land. the new owners moved in, which my buddy and his wife became friends with. my plan is moving along just as i had imagined. so i tell my buddy, tell your neighbors i will take those logs off of thier hands. after a little while he tells me she said that her son is coming to take them, but i could have 1. my plan just came to a screaming halt. i told him to thank his neighbor, but i really want all of it or none of it. not to sound ungrateful, but i would rather not have to go through dragging the splitter up for a weekend, just to split a little bit of token wood, and still need to find more. looks like i will just have to split a load at home and drive it up. he told me yesterday she said i can have all of it. i figured the longer it sat there, the better chance i had at getting it. patience pays dividends. there is propably 2+ years worth of firewood. and its the smaller, less hernia enducing wood that i like to split, and its about 1,000' from my house.
