By the time I moved out of their home I must have helped cut and split 50 cords of wood. Funny how much I hated that chore as a kid but actually really enjoy it now (woodstove in the shop)

CO temps have to be minus. Wet side is single digit at the moment. The orange horse won't leave the shop.

Put blankets on our horses (except the Fjord - he grows his own) on Friday for the first time in 3 years. It was -20 this morning here on the east side of Bend. The Fisher wood stove has been getting a workout the last few days.

My boy has gotten better over the years, especially since i bought him his own axe. Although it is testing him in these current temps.
Like most chores we delegate to our kids, i hope the training will set them in good shape for the future...hoping that they are still allowed to burn wood fires then!

They (forest circus) used to had out fat tickets for hauling "long Cuts" with a wood cutting permit. Has this changed or do the score marks I see pacify them?

Six foot max here in ID, too. Mine are five 13 1/2" sections to end at roughly 5' 8". I got pulled over on 4th of July pass one time by a state cop who said someone complained about my load looking "unsecured". He seemed apologetic for having to stop me, and he let me go with no issues. I was shitting bricks because that truck was far from legal at the time.

Grandpa way

Ole' Grandpa like to go to the national forest to get firewood he would spend all day. He filled the pickup and wood trailer with wood cut and split to 14". He didn't want the sawdust and noise of additional cutting in his subdivision. So the wood was ready to burn when he got home.
The long logs are a great idea for getting firewood out of the woods I am impressed.
