Got Some Ash Today

While I was driving thru the neighborhood today to go up and get some white oak that I couldn't fit on the truck a month ago............I drove by a house/lot that has essentially sat vacant for 10+ years now. It's right on the water..........Lake Miltmore.............I fish there a lot. Anyhow, there was a crew clearing the lot of all the "volunteer" trees.........mostly ash/box elder.After I got my load of oak back to the house; I went back (less than 1 mile) to the above. In my best "Spanglish", I was able to communicate with the amigo that if the cut wood was free, I'd take it. He said, "Si, Si, Si"!!!!!!!So 2 small loads in Mighty Whitey got me this. The pix don't show the oak that I had already split and stacked in the back yard today prior to these pix.

Dorkweed if you every show up to Idaho I show you how to stuff a 1.5 cords on your truck and get the maximum carry capacity out of the bed. 192 Cu.Ft. is 1.5 Cords.

I have no doubt about that at all Mike.:smart: I could've gotten it all in 1 trip had I pulled out my dog crates and the platform they sit on out of the bed. But it was close (less than 1 mile away, so I made 2 trips. It took less than 1 hour. I used the 18 or so inches behind the crate platform and the tailgate to load the logs onto.
