    The 4x4’s are always at like 5% or wont read. Burn SUPER hot. If i leave them outside for a few months they actually go up to like 10% and are a bit easier to use. They actually burn for a very long time.

    The small pc in the bed are what i use exclusively fir top down fire starting.

    Easiest scrounge I've ever had. Highway Dept. took this big oak down about a 1/2 mile from here. Wished I had caught them earlier as they had already hauled a couple loads away. But cant complain about FREE, DELIVERED wood. IMG_20190314_162441.jpg

    20190314_165847.jpg The little mulberry made a full bucket. Didn't think it was that much. 20190314_175834.jpg Filled a few racks for 20/21. 62* today so I couldn't help but go out and get some stuff done.

    Would have been a great day to cut but I was mounting mudflaps and running boards.

    Lost about a foot of snow today. I can see the top of my split pile! A lot of bare ground on the fields but I still have a few feet behind my place where it drifts in. 12°C today. Supposed to freeze and snow tomorrow afternoon. Yuck, I hate the in-between season!

    Isn’t it fu&@ing ridiculous that mudflaps and wheel well liners don’t come standard anymore.

    Lots of back barring, spray as much away from yourself and the saw, I also spray my saws down with wd40 before cutting sappy wood and every time I fill them up, just need to be sure to keep it off the handles.
    I saw some sap bags full today in the river valley, looked like a couple gallons each bag.

    Might be some scroungin goin on here in the next couple days. Just had a no joke storm blow through. Fire dept, cops and power company here. Blew a branch across all 3 legs of the high voltage lines. Lit up like Christmas. If I wasnt on the fone with 911 when it was happening I woulda got video. Power out. Sump pump pit is rising....

    I think thats a Johnny Cash song....
