We're always looking for a good source for kindling and knew the slabwood would be good for getting a fire going in our wood stoves before adding the hardwoods (maple and birch) during the cold, upcoming winter months.
So this morning we hitched up our faithful high-sided trailer and headed out.
We had heard there had been a new public boat landing constructed on a nice lake on the way so we stopped there to take a look at it.
It was a windy day, and mighty chilly standing looking out over the lake.
Then it was on to G's place where he greeted us with a load of wood waiting and ready in his fork lift.
He put three loads into our trailer and after a short visit, we were on our way back home.
We did do a little trimming of a couple of those boards sticking out before heading down the road.
When we got home we had to unload each and every stick of wood by hand. No other way to get it out of the trailer.
Talk about getting your bending and upper body workout. Ooof. I should sleep soundly tonight.
