This year burning was somewhat a last minute thing, and it being my first year I just needed to get wood. Next years stash is stacked better than this years. In the basement, it just kinda got thrown down there and stacked wherever. Now I find myself digging and moving stuff to find the size and type of pieces i want. Next year I have it all planned out: a section for my hickory (overnight burns only) a section for small branches and small splits for getting the fire going a section of soft/junk wood for spring and fall a section for all other splits a section for all other rounds Am I nuts? My wife sure thinks so.
