Taking a cue from CTRider and starting a wood hoarding journal thread. I thought maybe it’d be fun to have a thread where I can post all my pictures and hoarding/scrounging adventures rather than putting up a lot of individual posts. Keep it all in one place. Eventually it’ll be neat to be able to scroll back in it and recall certain things. This is where I stand right now as far as my hoarding goes. The pile of uncut lengths is from some recent roadside scrounging on state land. Mix of sugar and red maple, ash, black birch, white birch, little bit of cherry and red oak. I’ve been scrounging sawless - if I can’t pick it up, roll it or flip it end over end without cutting it, it doesn’t go in the truck. Makes for quick scrounges and saves the back. The pile of cut and ready to split rounds is everything I’ve hauled off the hill out back from cutting up storm damaged and storm felled trees. Its mostly all 12” diameter or less stuff. The easily handleable stuff that fits well in the ATV trailer. It’s a good mix of species. Shag hickory, red oak, maple, locust, ash, black birch, beech. And there are also a couple hauls worth of larger diameter ash from my ash score, here. I plan to trailer the splitter over there come spring and start hauling back truckloads of splits. My wife and I heat the house with wood only. Propane furnace is back up or emergency use only and isn’t even plugged in. It’s a small house. Pretty easy to keep warm with our woodstove in the basement. So far this winter we are just about through three cord of wood. Been taking from the back side of the wood shed this year as that’s the oldest stuff. Shed is three 8’ x 6’ bays of four rows of 18” splits each. Stacked 7 feet high. So it’s just about 8 cord when fully stacked in. Got about 2.5 cord stack up on the front side that will be 2 years old come next winter. This is our second winter with the shed since I built it. As things are shaping up it holds 1.5 to 2 years of wood for us. I’d like to get on the 3 year plan. I think for right now that means stacking up on pallets and top covering. As I used to do before the wood shed. Just don’t have the time right now to build another shed. Gotta keep hoardin’! And for anyone wondering - Mount Kadam is the name my wife and I gave our property and small farm. It’s a hill. Not a mountain, haha. And our names are Kat and Adam. So, Kadam.
