Just another leisurely Saturday

It was that time of year again! We cut about 7 or 8 chords of wood on Saturday out at the family farm. Had 10 acres of the 200 of it logged last May and the logging co left a lot of trunks that were labeled "defect". In other words, they weren't perfect so they didn't take them. They also left a massive pile of the tops too for us. It was all wood that for the average joe was perfect fire wood. So instead of having to fell our own trees, we lucked out and had an estimated pile of 25 to 30 chords already felled for us!! We barely made a dent!

It was all hardwood with majority of it being different types of Oak with a healthy mix Shagbark, Shellbark, and Black Hickory. In all, there were six 5 or so foot piles of wood.

I, of course made sure to pick out my fair share of hickory splits! :biggrin1: All I know is that next year I need to bring a bigger truck; my little 4 banger Frontier was puttin' up and down those Hwy CC back roads!

For now the plan is to let the hickory splits season for a few months more and then saw into chunks. Once that happens, I'll be set on hickory wood for a good while!! And yes, that is my ugly mug in the bottom of the pic and that is our I.H. 966 in the back ground...:laugh:

That is a nice lot of wood, got to ask though, if you have a I.H. 966 don't you have a large wagon to use to haul the wood other than your little 4 banger? :rolleyes:

Well if the 966 was street legal over 25mph on the interstate I would've gladly loaded down the dump trailer behind it and drove it an hour and a half back home! hahaha! I'm convincing myself I just need to go buy a Duramax. :biggrin1: The 4 banger is so good on gas though..........

Plus its technically not mine. Its in my uncle's name but is basically open to be used by whoever hops up top first. Unfortunately, that was not me this time around.. :sad:
