    Mine were always in full sun. With Cherry, Silver Maple, or Tulip Poplar they dried fine. The one time I did it w/ Oak, they seemed to be drying well.... A tropical storm brought 3 days of torrential rain which ruined that experiment.:msp_mad:

    My barn is as full as I can get it now, and I'm forced to pile outside. :bang: So I normally relegate myself to cutting just Hedge when this happens... For some reason it weathers the elements better than the other varieties I cut... Hackberry??? Not so much...

    Only get the truck this close to my shed/splitting area when the ground is either frozen or good and dry, as I have to back across the fron lawn to get there.

    Damn spike that is a clean work area. Where's all the wood chips? uglies? empty beer cans?

    Digging the wood shed, simple and effective, looks rustic.

    I move to where the wood is. Cut and split there and haul home to stack.

    Cutting at home now. 15 acres.

    Moving down the road 10 mins to my brother's place next. 20 acres. This is one of 6 or so piles left by the logger.

    Stack by the stove.

    Uglies go into a couple of chunk boxes on either side of the shed, that aren't quite in the pic. I do rake up all of the bark and wood chips and wheelbarow them into the woods. And though they may not be visible, there are always beer cans/bottles associated with this operation. Looking out the window, there are a couple of Torpedo IPA bottles from last night in fact. :msp_w00t:

    Shed was a nice project that I did about 15 years ago. Holds a little under 5 cords. Spaced the side boards with a piece of 2x4 so it gets plenty of air. Ran an electric line out there so I can flip on a light switch when I go out for wood at night. Sure don't miss dealing with all those tarps!

    I told you not to smoke that funny weed way down there. Stop it.
    You can't get there from here.
    Calais Maine to Loudon New Hampshire by Cessna maybe an hour. By your truck more like 5-6 hours' drive. :msp_w00t:

    I hate tarps with a passion. I really need to build a wood shed that will hold 4 cord or so.

    Yeah that's a haul. I'm a little closer, but not that much.
