    I am here. Just keeping it on the down low. Got plenty of extra wood. Just split 10 cord in the last two days with the skid steer. Was splitting till 6:30 last night with the head lights.

    I have to work today and tomorrow, but I could probably get a load cut Thursday or Friday. I could get a load up that way Friday or Saturday probably.

    Jetmd, send me a PM if you want to try to team up for cutting or something.

    Jeff's Small engine would not be the place to meet.
    Reason A: very limited parking!
    Reason B: absolutely no love lost between Jim and Jeff!!!! (very old squabble.)

    Actually north of Rushville in Halls. Wide spot in hwy 59 exactly 7 miles south of St. Joseph city limits.

    Jim is at a 'Y' junction with a county letter road KK in the wide corner of the 'Y'. I usually park down the letter road a dab just to get me arse off the shoulder of 59. Grain trucks go flying by.

    I could do that either New years day, or early Saturday. I have to work Friday and I am on call Sunday.
    I have access to wood that can be cut for a load for Jim, landowner will let me cut 2 loads....take 1 and
    leave one for them. I can load my truck, just a little short due too toolbox in the back.
    Let me know what you want to due. Gritz is close to me, so we can ride together or follow each other
    if we take 2 loaded truck.

    I have truck, trailer, wood, and time. Jim is a long way from me and I am short on cash right now. I am off Wed-Sun. If you guys cannot get Jim taken care of let me know,,,I will get some gas/food money somewhere. My boys are loaded thanks to our firewood business.

    Got lucky today. The city is cleaning out trees from under/over power lines in my neighborhood. Got a call from the company doing the work (how he got my number, I don't know). He had heard of what we do and said we could have all the wood. Double lucky, I get off early tomorrow and off Thursday, so, Ill be processing firewood and get some delivered before the weather gets bad.

    Even if only Kenneth & I make drops, 2-1/2 to 3 cords, it should be 1-2 months worth. There is no reason for folks to feel they need to go to extremes. As Carl mentioned, Mo Jim does enjoy scrounging wood so I'm fairly sure he does have some on hand.

    I'm about 2-1/2 hours away. I will probably go up Sunday, Jan 11th.
