I'm Back
« on: October 20, 2021, 08:21:47 PM »
  After 2 weeks off due to the wreck I'm back in business and picking up where I left off.  Today I finished the order I was delivering to when the incident occurred.  Ran some short loads to get a couple clients done and built the racks Sunday and Monday.  Back to five face cord loads again 8) 8) 8)

That truck build looks great. Glad to see you are back delivering wood. Best of luck with mopping up all the other damage caused by this rear-end hit.

I didn't know you where in a wreck earlier except a lightening strike wreck. Glad you're back at it and have some better luck forward. ;)

I've been thinning and hauling firewood home lately here, for next season. Nice to have it sitting here by the firewood racks ready to stack when the older wood is emptied into the furnace. :D

Corley, good to see you going again. The truck looks great. Firewood is hard work but satisfying. You guys who sell a lot of it really earn your money. I hope luck stays with you for a while.

When you get thrown of a horse, you catch him and get back on.           Very  good news.   I see you copied my tailgate style, don't roll back :)

  And I'm caught up 8) 8) 8)  Except for a five face cord order a week from tomorrow and wood for our house, shop, and sugar house which is about 80 face cord.  A ten cord load of 100" red oak is coming tomorrow for the house and shop OWBs.  I've got bug ash set aside to process for sugar wood when it's convenient and that season will be here shortly :)
  Since the 14th of October I've done 290 face cords, 96.66667 standard cords if you prefer ;) :), and 520 firewood bundles.  There were four days I processed and delivered 20 face cords and one day I pulled out 21.  I slowed myself up when the time changed.  The 12-14 hour days were getting to me.  Something about being in my 50s I've concluded.  I'm tired, ready for a winter's nap  ;) ;D :)

I forgot to add the 20 pulp cords of mobile jobs I did which amounts to about another 50 face cord  :) and the couple of 1-2 cord picked up on site jobs that I don't like because they throw my whole schedule off.  I had a guy inquire in the last couple days about bringing his dump trailer out for me to load with five face cord.  I won't cut much of a deal because it's a PITA.  He hasn't returned my message 8) 8) 8)
 I also took time to add jacks to the short live deck rather than putting the machine's deck back on for the mobile jobs.  It's added in the shed now giving me 28' of powered deck.  I had to to put a five spool valve on. I don't plan to go mobile again.  Too much to move and the machines make $$$ where they are.  I told these guys if they want to buy their own wood to have delivered to me and I'll process and deliver to them.  They're not too far away.  I also told them I can get the wood cheaper with my volume discount.

Red oak 100" for us.  Today is the first day in a long time that I haven't had the firewood machines running.  Felt good to work on other things :)

Corley, nice 8' sticks of oak! Do you get more for oak or does it just get mixed in with everything else?
