    About 8" snow from yesterday. Luckily dry and powdery. Sheet of plywood and tarp covering mine. IMG_4060.JPG
    I may end making two more trips to the same guy.

    Awesome great work, we got about 14” last week then another 5-6” yesterday and their saying more this week. Its definitely slowed my hoarding down and the wood yard is a mess. I might take the sled and a saw out their was a tree down on the Rr bed when kamo and i were snowmobiling. That locust looks great!!

    Got a call from "cord three" customer today. He is referring me to friends. Best firewood he's ever bought! Retirement aged guy who's been burning for a long time. Very little mess when he cleaned the tarp i unloaded on. I love to hear that. Gonna be a regular for dead BL. Now the stress of finding the stuff. Have 1.5 cord on hand now. Gotta get rockin and rollin. Ill mix in green heartwood splits with no bark as well.

    Awesome work my friend!!! $350 seems more than fair for exclusively BL that is truly seasoned and barkless.

    Brads like Paul Revere except he's telling everyone about how good Black Locust is. He's single handedly making Black Locust a mainstay firewood here in the Northeast.
