Through your open bedroom windows you awake to the sound of chainsaws and a BIG chipper running and don't even go and investigate. I'm wood weary now with 3 years wood c/s/s and all gathered this year (about 6 cords) and another 2 on the ground waiting to be split. This is by far a record for me thanks to you guys and gals. I just knew that it would be neighbors taking down sweet gum trees and I was afraid my addiction would get the best of me and I would be 'forced' to take it because it was so easy. Held out for 2 hours and finally had to go have a look because I couldn't get the thought out of my head that it might be oak or maple or hickory etc. Sure enough, sweet gum in log length on the ground and 40 feet of it still in the air. Called my sponsor though and he talked me through it and I walked away. So proud of myself, it's been a whole week since my last scrounge :blank: Edit: Meant to post this to the Wood Shed forum, probably get moved.
