wood splitting

Well 1 task is done and over with. Spent much of the past week splitting somewhere around 3.5-4 cords of wood. Hickory and ash wood, the hickory just about did me in as each of the nearly 35-40" dia rounds must of weighed 200lbs. I thought free was good thing, nope! Well it's all done cleaned up and now back to the drywall project.

Well, I heard that you get warmed up twice when you're splitting wood.

Once when you're splitting it.
Twice when you're burning it.

Hope that you don't need all of that wood this winter, though!

Yeah.... that and some 16 year old tough guy to do the heavy lifting for ya! You'd be surprised the gut-wrenching jobs 16 year olds would do for $20!

Hm I havent even started my wood for this winter. I am half tempted to find some for sale. Once I start forking out the cash for it maybe it will motivate me to start cutting. It is about to late for it to dry out now.

Congrats on getting it all done.

To bad ya'll are so far away from Chattanooga there is free firewood available by the dump truck load. I am not exagerating when I say by the tandum truck load. The tornados that came through in the spring knocked down so many trees that the city has no where to put them. I went by a lot that had to be at least two acres where they were shreading the trees and the mulch pile was 40' high and covered the whole lot. There are stacks of hard wood along the sides of the road still waiting to be picked up after three months.

If your to busy to go hunting, your just to busy.
