    Right where I want to be.
    But, it looks so lonely sitting there with no firewood on it.
    I'm sure you have the solution though.

    Looking gooder Ashwatcher , those stacks sure get plenty of sun for quick drying. I'm with you on not doing much in the woods, or heavy handling of future fuel in this heat. The wood can wait till it gets cooler, stay hydrated my friend!

    Nice Ashwatcher and I agree; stay away from pallets if you can. I've never liked them and have seen more than one sprained ankle from stepping on a pallet. Besides, they really do look awful. Well, they really don't look too bad when stacked on the brush pile.

    Thanks all and additionally Sir Backwoods Savage , the rotting and constantly having to move them out when they do poses a great risk of losing some nails and then picking them up on mower tires

    Ashwatcher where are you scoring rail? I've always though it would be great for firewood stacking. just never found a source.

    Hey Ralphie Boy , I hope this finds you well....a coal train used to run by the property back when I was a small child and was removed-I built my house on a foundation that once was the sight of a Columbia Gas Field office that my grandfather was the regional superintendent over and they had a pipe yard and the rails have been here, along with the pipe remaining that the one stack is on for over 40 yrs-my best guesstimate is the track was removed @ 1970 or so-I was young and remember throwing rocks at the train (not the engineer)-Its now a publicly traveled road that splits the south eastern side of my property

    I have a new IPhone that has a panoramic photo option thats pretty cool and I’m still learning it but I have a pic thats pretty neat and it wont seem to load, saying an error occurs-Its an IPhone XR and I’m trying to send from a newer IPad Pro-any of you more technically savvy guys have a clue how to get it to post?

    Hey sir-I hope you and all are well and your summer is enjoyable-those pics were taken starting @ 9am and my stacks will receive sun until it sets-single row, 9” of the ground and facing south does indeed accelerate drying time-I will apply rubber roofing to that which is not currently covered @ Nov 1. Happy hoarding my friend!

    The file size is probably too big. Apparently the forum has a limitation on file sizes and you get a rather cryptic error message at upload.
    This site (even though they are hawking their APP ) has instructions with pics how to use the photos APP to email the pic to yourself to compress the file size. There's no way in the camera APP to adjust picture size.

    If you already know how to send a pic to somebody via email, you're just sending it to yourself to get a copy with a smaller file size. I don't know which file size you need to pick when you get the choice.

    emailing files to yourself comes in handy when you don't have a data cable or flash drive or use a lot of apps

    I would think the RR would be highly ticked off on your approting the rails from their line.
