    Everyone have enough? I think we'll make it fine till spring. I put the trailer load in the basement & sold the truck load.

    I ran out last March, so I cut an extra amount last spring for this winter. It's looking good this year. Hasn't been that cold yet, but that could change any day. I probably cut and split about twice what's on that trailer. Nice house!

    I'm getting lazy in my old age. I just buy a couple of cord and supplement that in my spare time with some round ones for campfires and whatnot.

    Still have about 3 cords of 2 year old white oak for this year. Burns so hot the firebrick in the furnace and the fireplace are WHITE. Come June, I will be cutting wood for 2014. Got about 6 cords seasoning for 2013.

    Na, no guns and one beer nursed slowly along with a slow 300 yard ATV ride.

    Think safety first.

    I sold about 250 rick of firewood last year. This year ive got another edition to the family so not as much time or energy to do that much. All I cut and sale is hedge.

    Sounds like you're a busy man. Tell me about your rick measurement. Perhaps 8'X4'X16" or 60+ cords? Here very few people sell measured wood. It's by the pickup load, short bed, long bed, etc.

    I sell from my lot mostly. People come a pick up what they want so I haul very little.

    So the rick measurement you "would use" is 4'X8'X24" which should be half a cord? That's a bunch of firewood you sold.:)

    Well 4x8x24 is a rick. But like I said everyone has those inserts and you cant get a 24 inch piece in them so I cut the pieces 18inches.

    The firewood I sell is cut 16". For the furnace & that which Cracker Barrel buys we cut 'bout 22". The window of my splitter is 24" with a 4 way wedge installed.
