By this time last year it did not seem like I am in business.Not this year,busier then ever.Was going to spend the day deer hunting,instead loaded and delivered 40 cord of fire wood.At least I did not have to stack it.A dump truck is a beautiful thing.

Thats alot of firewood. I use about 5 cord per winter and I thought that was alot. How much are you charging per cord in your area. Seem like around here they are getting between $75 and $125. I heard out near Boston, it is close to $200/cord!!

Wow, thats cheap to me --- Of course I get by with going through the same rack of wood for the last 10 years. I generally use Starterlogs as we have about 1-2 days of actual cold days down here in LA --- So, all of my wood gets chippered for mulch etc. :D

You would have my business. I haven't bought wood since I moved in in 1995. Still working off all the wood from clearing the 100's of trees we had.

That's a great deal!!!

Do you deliver to eastern CT??

Yeah, but then he has to deal with those Boston drivers. Also, from some of the posts here, it looks like Wheely and his monkey are heading their for a weekend getaway!!

ain't running out no time soon

My firewood is maybe a bargain,I am cheaper then most of the guys that do nothing but firewood.This is second money for me,almost all of the wood I cut comes from other jobs, Lot clears,wind blowdowns,removals.The nice logs I save for my sawmill,the rest I cut for firewood. So I get paid twice.When I make lumber I keep it affordable for the barn and shed builders too!

I just took my pants off and my wife screamed

Yesterday Throwing wood around,I threw a piece on the dump truck. It hit the side board and bounced back at me.Damn thing hit me right in the front of my thigh.Hurt like a son of a gun,rubbed it a little bit and went back to work.My leg stopped hurting ,I figured it was just a stinger. Well here i stand in my underwear and boy do I have a huge (here goes the medical deffinition)Sub Dermal Hemotoma.Must have broken a blood vessel under the skin. I have a black and blue down the whole back of my thigh.
It does not hurt,so I will maybe live.But my career as an underwear model for Sears And Robucks is on hold for now!:mad:#[email protected]$:
