    BrokenToys,

    I'm in the beer option camp also.
    Start drinking and stacking and in no time bark side wont matter.
    The stack will get done somehow but you wont remember doing it :)

    It really doesn't bother me at all, I just figured I'd add some useful information to this most beneficial thread :clap:

    How is information of any type ever useless? Unless of course it is untrue. It's not so much of a factual hardcore do or die thread, it's more about having a preverbial beer around a preverbial fire while discussing with fellow wood burners how they do their thing. Every once in awhile when mouths are closed and ears are open, you just might pick something up that can make your life easier.

    Like it makes a difference.

    I think a lot of people have too much time on their hands.

    Same here, other than that I don't think it makes a difference.

    I stack it all randomly, in crooked, leaning stacks in the woodshed. Usually while swilling cold frosties,,I aint sure why they are always crooked leaning stacks,,I've swilled many a cold frosty while contemplating this phenom,,before stacking more. It's kinda' funny, late in the winter, I'm always finding empty beer bottles, wedged between the splits of wood, with the labels all facing up!!
