    I won't be able to haul firewood but can set up someone else with the number of the guy who has it for sale for $40.

    Hey Gregg,

    Pm me that number.

    Joel,

    I have to bring 3 bikes so, hard to say if I'll have room for firewood, but I'll try.

    I'll have to drive by and get the number. I didn't save it. It's up in the hills above Moorpark. The guy cleared a lemon grove and is selling this large skip loader bucket full for $40.00. It almost completely filled the back of my truck piled up to the roof of the shell. It will fill a full size long bed American pickup bed completely to the top of the bed rails. There won't be any room for bikes. You might want to split it between four or five trucks.

    My Truck which it almost filled

    Jim

    The wood is where Highway 23 (Grimes Cyn Rd.) turns north going up to the pass over to Fillmore, at the intersection of Broadway Rd. It's a large skip loader parked there with the bucket full of wood. You have to call the guy and he will come out and start the machine and dump it into your truck or trailer.

    I won't have a chance to drive by there till tomorrow afternoon to get the phone number.

    Yes it is at around 18 inch lengths. It's not split but is small diameter. I used it twice now camping and it burns fine.

    If anyone is looking for a great LED setup, I put this one on my bike and it is awesome... I purchased it from Black Dog Cycle Works, they are Rigid Industries LED Lights... For the GS / GSA, there is a very nice set of mounting brackets too.

    LEDs still pale in comparison to HIDs. The LEDs I see light up what is at my feet, HIDs light up where I need to be looking down the trail.
