My wife is a saint :hmm3grin2orange:
She must be.
Look who she married and puts up with on s day to day basis
You can pick up a kit for installing your own brass grommets at Walmart, K-Mart, Shopco, various fleet stores and whatnot. Usually they contain a dozen or so grommets, the hole punch and the crimp die(s)... it will cost you less than the price of a box-o-beer. Most often I see them in the "camping" area, close to the tent stakes, water proofing and such. I've used 'em, they work, and they're easy to do. If you fold the "cut" edge under a couple of times so the grommets are installed through 2-3 layers the edge lasts longer and the holes are more durable.
I don't cover my firewood... never have...
And I'm all about freedom... so I don't have used underwear to throw on the stacks either...
I Firewood and tarps
Sleep with one eye open.:help:
I'm so sick of the cheap poly tarps leaking and falling apart that I'm thinking about calling mytarp.com and having 18 oz PVC tarps custom made for my woodpile. I think it would be worth it in the long run.
I'd love to find rubber roofing, but haven't been able to.
Check with local billboard companies you can cut those pvc ones, glue and repair them too.
We all do:hmm3grin2orange:
It's the gift that keeps on giving
And moisture meters, and the Mingo, and the X27
I believe in simplicity.
I fold the tarps to fit. Easy peasy.

and the firewood buddy:msp_razz:
I tried folding them to fit but water runs into the fold and causes trouble. In the winter when it freezes I can't get it out and it ends up weighing hundreds of pounds. I guess I could poke some holes in the fold.....
Make the pile the size of the tarp.
That would explain why Ross walks around with that #### eating grin.
Yes, yes it does. This thread also needs more mention of Scotch, leather bound books, and my dog Baxter.
But what about Stihl Ultra, and fuel stabilizer? Do you love them, or are they just yesterdays news?
