This may belong in the wood shed, and I am positive this idea is not new.....just new to me and popped into my head while I was CCS a cord of pine Saturday. I realized I must handle each piece of wood close to a dozen times before I get to enjoy it in the fire, so...with this thought in mind here is a countdown to burn. 1= Cut the round 2=Load round on to truck 3=unload the round from the truck 4=stack the round 5=move round for splitting 6=split the round and move the piece to the wood drying pile 7=move the split to the dry wood burnable stack 8= load split on to wood carrier to take into garage as part of a 2 day supply to burn 9= move split from garage to stove to burn. Now I realize everyone's number is slightly different because of the setup they have in their home, sometimes there are more (sometimes after I cut the round I roll it toward the place where I will be loading which adds another count to the handling process and some of you lucky folks will have setups that have less steps, still it surprised me as I thought about this. What is your number?
