    This site is getting annoyingly damn slow, the other site is at least 5 times faster.

    Got the keys. Don't even have to go through the gate to get the first cherry log just park and cut from the side of the road. So much wood on the hill top I could prolly heat the house for years.

    20190108_074925.jpg 20190108_074945.jpg Can any of you tell me what tree this is from. Its lite burns hot and has a decent burn time. I'm used to the liter woods throwing good heat but not holding coals like this stuff does.

    Looks like a windy one here. The current temp is the high. At least it will freeze up.

    As liberal of a State that Maryland is, with many anti hunters, we did get a law passed forbidding the harrasment of hunters. No dirt bikes, horns, yelling, or dogs off your property. If the hunter happens to be hunting the fence line between the anti’s property, I guess they can do what they want on their side. But, if the hunter calls the police, they will come out and warn the people to leave the hunters alone. That usually pizzas the anti off enough the give up.

    Our local pick and pull junkyard used to sell a rear axle with springs and tires for about $65. Cheap start for a home made trailer. If you found an old Caddy or Olds with heavier axle and bigger tires, they were all the same price.

    Maybe it is oak just seemed awful lite compared to other oak on the racks. Also has Spalting? Through some of it like the maples get. Whatever it burns well and keeps the house warm.

    This is some 2 year old Red Oak out of my shed. In the shed it never gets light on it, so it never grays out.
