EZ Firewood

Talk about getting 4 cords of firewood in under 3 hours. I delivered 2 cords to a good friend down the road and bought 2 cords for myself. So I've got a great guy in New Meadows named Mike Dezey. He has his own logging business. So when there is a damaged log than isn't going to accepted by the mill he cuts the damaged chunk out and hauls this stuff home. Then turns around and sell red fir for $100 a cord or $200 for my trailer load. Spurce is $80 a cord. But with Stage II fire restriction this is a awesome option but even his pile is running out.

With as many people in the area as I live who also cut firewood and as limited access, I'll be going the log truck route. It's bad enough to go scrounging for it, then it's all still gotta be css'ed.

Log truck delivered to my driveway in 10-12 cord increments. Will be burning at a rate of 4 a year. 2 1/2 years worth of wood for heat!

I hadn't heard about those yet so did a little looking around at it appears to be isolated to the Nez Perce NF and we are still restriction free in the Payette NF and Boise NF...  which is funny to me since the Nez Perce seems to get more moisture than Payette and Boise National Forest.  

 

Did the chainsaw time change? Or is it not set? I thought the last time I saw chainsaw restrictions it was 10am, but this time it says 1pm.

As of this morning Payette has nothing on their website, and even has a statement that they are not in restriction at this time.

Sounds like an overzealous sign manager :-)

 

Rather odd just gave them a call as well and it only a BLM restriction along the US95 area from New Meadows toward Grangeville. It not a USFS yet. The gent I talk said this coming week it might change again dues the dryness in the area. But he did mention the Yes Payette USFS did post the sign and yes the fire restriction are imposed current in my area. (Zone 4). Give it time it will change again. As far as I can say even my Fire Chief is held to the Stage II restrictions as well.

I'm so jealous.

 

If you can unload this by "hand" I'll let you take as much as you can unload.

 

The Honda Rancher got a good beating today when one log turned side way and rolled down the ramp and into to the nose of the ATV. On top of that it roll the winch line up pulling the ATV down to the ground tweaking my wench bracket. Most of this stuff was so heavy that even pulling with the winch line was insane the ATV would stand on its nose and pull for all its got.
