What happens when the power company wants to put up new poles and run new lines through the middle of a BIL's pasture?
HMMMM. He negotiates and gets them to cut all the trees along the side of the road and they cut the logs into firewood! Then he wants someone to get the wood.
The only problems are...THAT'S A LOT OF FIREWOOD!! And, if you will notice, it's all at the bottom of a steep ditch with a fence on the other side.
|Notice the steep bank on one side and the fence on the other?|
This is how we load our firewood in rural Northeast Ga. Well, at least this is how hubby and I do it.
We drive through the pasture and pull straight up to the fence.
Then we borrow BIL's tractor. Pull it up to the fence and put the bucket over the fence.
But how do we get it in the bucket?
We MANHANDLE that stuff!
This is what our truck and trailer look like when we get through loading.
We decided to take all the wood we are getting from here to my parents.
|Wood waiting to be busted.|
When the weather cools down, we will be getting the family together and busting wood at their house.
God has truly blessed us to be able to bless them.
Hope you didn't get tired and sore looking at all that firewood!
See y'all later.
