Re: Lets see pics of your truck hauling!!

Here are some pix from original owner (my PO). She soon discovered the horse trailer was the tail wagging the dog— never actually hauled horses with it. She was a very nice woman who kept impeccable records of my rig ( or as she calls it “Mr. Truck”)

My preference is Alligator Juniper, it's much easier to split, and burns hotter in my wood stove, does not soot the chimney so much, smells awesome when burning, but allergies go nuts about this time of year from them. When Oak is seasoned, it's added only when the fire is hot from the other wood, otherwise it goes out, otherwise it can put out heat for a longer time.

special-K: Not in that pile. But down the street, I grabbed two pieces of Ralph Lauren Polo Sport luggage, might have gone on only one trip, perfect condition. There was another suitcase, but it was ugly. Lots of BBQs and other metal objects, am tempted to grab all that and sell at recycler.

This was after the second load, doesn't look like much more. Guessing a 1/4 to 1/3 cord.

Thumbs up Firewood

THANX ! .

I spent most of to - day trimming an elderly Tangerine tree and was wondering if the wood would smell nice, I don't think my chimney is safe anymore (1923) so I didn't save any of the wood I cut up .

I too have a hard time passing trash piles when I see them ~ my super heavy duty branch loppers came from some old man's detritus after he died, I have tools & Motocycles I've picked up on bulky item day....

When old folks die 'round here they tend to empty the house and curbstone close to everything .

I just remembered a word I used to hear used a lot a long time ago... Scarf! Or "Scarfin' on stuff", "I just scarfed this wood off the curbside"!

BTW, day before yesterday I was following some back roads to get to a big fire I spotted and ended up on this dirt road where the county had cut some trees and there were a few cut to length rounds of locust (my favorite) laying. I stopped right there and made space in the back of the Suburban and commenced to scarfin' . Luckily on Monday I emptied it out and only had things I needed that day in the back. It's split and in the shed!

Picked up a sofa today LOL. Not exactly heavy hauling but it's hauling! Think I'll leave the topper off for a while.
