And look what they brought me. Unfortunately the rounds are too short (maybe I can put in two splits behind each other), but it's good quality. And free. And easy to split (by hand).
What a great score and future resource. Those little rounds can be hard to stack, but do a good job filling gaps in the wood stove.

Yeah, I read somewhere on this site that one of the BK owners actually put shorties standing up in his stove. Will be doing that too - in 2-3 years. Nice experiment

I hadn't thought of putting them in a stove like that. I bet my long narrow stove would get super long burns with a bunch of short fat rounds like that!

@kennyp2339 14Dec on the 2020/21 BK thread was the first time I read about it.

Afternoon spent in the woods. Beautiful day for it. 20201226_125415.jpg 20201226_145635.jpg 20201226_145644.jpg Finally got to try out the bucking stand in the field. My back likes it very much. Think chain does too.

Spent the day in the woods with the dogs carrying wood to fill the garage while the girls went sledding. We had a couple cold snowy days, but yesterday was sunny and 40. A good day to be outside.

Nice to hear that you got a break from work, we got forced in Jersey 16/8's for xmas eve thru yesterday, normally I'd be pretty upset with it, but this is just par for 2020 here.

kennyp2339 sorry to hear that. I worked 16's till the week before Christmas. We had a couple of our sub transmission lines that needed to be reconductored and I was picked to do the job. Great money but a long six weeks. We had to replace about a mile and 1/4 of 795. between 2 big storms and crews being sent home here and there for covid protocol. 2020 was a challenging year. I'm hoping 2021 is a little better. If things go my way I'm hoping to be down in Ohio Edison in the next few months.

@heavy hammer 795 is no joke, about the only easy thing is pulling to rope through and the new poly clamps, but still a major pia, especially when its cold, wire doesnt want to work with you, its almost tail pipe heating season for us, we usually throw a 10ft length of hendrix cable into a exhaust pipe to heat it up so we can make leads and taps.

I wish it would be easy like that sometimes for us 795 is the smaller stuff for us we have a lot of 1192, and 1590. The pulling out the old conductor and pulling in went very smooth. We used our rope machine, and tensioner and empty reel drums to pull the old stuff out and the ropes pulled in the new. We pulled in just a little under 3000 feet by four pulls one Sunday one static and all three conductors in under 8 hours. A lot of prep but a good smooth job.

Yesterday I thought it would be a good day to test out my shoulder so I grabbed the bow saw and cut five loads of dead pine branches from certain areas. From the feeling in my shoulder this morning, it needs more time.

The two pictures are from the fire yesterday, it really took off after I packed it full of pine and came into eat. Because I didn't charge the batteries and the cold, what juice was left in them the cold took care of.

This is what I processed about a month ago....then I got the trailer stuck....then a part in the clutch of my atv broke, so I couldn't get the trailer out....and the bike parts took a month to get, actually the parts came in 3 days, it took a month to get the clutch puller tool
Ain't that about the way it always goes....
