    That's very slick setup!! How much wood do you stack out like that?

    I was planning to do that but in 1c bunks of 4fts as I'm a boiler guy ... but sadly ... Jebus was a carpenter previous to his career as a profit ... he cry's when I try to do carpenty work ...

    Keep on .... Runnin' Loads !!

    I have about 15 of those boxes built, but I'd like to have 20.

    Thing is, when I start burning wood, I can keep refilling the ones I empty...

    And it was nice that my wife showed up, to help me,

    We just rolled some of the bigger ones onto the splitter, and shoved them through the 4-way,

    I had other thing to do today, so we got started late with the splitting, and then the wind and rain came! SO, what could I do ?, well I did the only thing I could do, I took my wife out for supper!! lol

    Black gold! Black oak, that is. They're logging the highway right-of-way in my area, taking the best and chipping the rest. They haven't gotten to my personal stretch, which has a power-line and road at the edge of the state property. I took a drive to see if I could help myself to a little before it's all gone. Somebody else had the same idea, but left it behind after butchering the tree while felling it. Only about 1/3 cord, but beautiful and solid. Some great overnight burns here.

    So after a week of small fires and just heating the shop, it went down to -20c, basically 0F so the boiler went to full use. So it's saw season here....

    I was out in the bush 15 min and this come flipping off the top as the main tree got hung, came down and took the saw outa my left hand.

    It's been above normal up here for almost a week, 28-32 and I actually went back to electric for the house and just heated the shop with micro fires of just junk wood, sadly it's back to 0 ish ...

    Keep on .... Runnin' Loads!!

    You know you have it bad when you use whatever you got just to bring in another load, no matter how small. [​IMG]

    So what’s your current temps and forcast?

    I woke up to -31c and will be this way for a coupla days thanks to a low pressure cell. Just hauling what I can l, if I can right now cause I have to feed propane to the quads intake for it to start, then stuff the boiler I the evening.

    Keep on .... Running Load’s

    -11 this morning here, -6 now on it's way to -13 tonight. Then some above zero respite till Saturday night.

    I have burned most of my pine so I am about 85 percent hardwood in the stack from here until the time we either run out of winter or run out of wood.
