Was out on the tractor mowing the lawn today and decided to take a peek at my 1.5 year old oak stack for this coming winter. I was expecting 20-24% but it came in at 16-18% on a fresh split! That's obviously not a scientific number since it wasn't ideal measuring conditions but given that its got another whole summer to season I'm a happy camper. I made smaller splits for this rack so I could get ahead a year and it payed off. Sitting pretty now with two cords of this oak and two cords of two year old ash/maple for this winter then 8 cords of oak/maple lined up for the next two seasons. A full 3 year cycle.
