Howie:

While I was up one Thanksgiving with Moski's family in Monterey, one guy that 'Mom' had got her firework from was charging $250/ 1/2chord. I decided that it was a deal, so I took the truck the next year, loaded it up with a 1/2 chord, took it home, and I couldn't get the damm stuff to burn to save my soul!

Don't have a fireplace anymore...darn thing now is a Natural Gas fireplace (for those cold nights!).

I'd put in a real fireplace if I could find Oak @ $125/chord! Nat Gas is going to be reeeeaaallll expensive here real soon!

And Mikey...other than what they call a dog's fur, have you ever seen a 'coat'? I went online to see what they were...

Sean,

I've built 3 homes here and in every one I heated them with wood in the winter.
Always been able to cut wood from my own property, but the house we're in now,
we had the contractor install a wood burning stove in the fireplace. Fortunately, I
manage to find free firewood.... here and there. I even burn redwood!

This winter is going to be a rough year for so many folks who have to use fuel oil
to heat their homes. The only good news is that propane is still cheaper than diesel

Oh heck,
Just for kicks: Courtesy Firewood Center

A rick, rack or face cord is only a part of a cord of wood. (A cord of wood is 128 cubic feet)

A rick or rack is the amount of firewood stacked by 4' by 8' by one row of the length of the stick.

A face cord is also one row of 4' by 8'. But the difference is a face cord has lengths of sticks that will eventually add up to 4' when stacked in two, three, or four rows.
Example of a face cord:
Four rows of 12" sticks=4'
Three rows of 16"=4'
Two rows of 24"=4'
Therefore, purchasing a face cord of 12" lengths is actually only cord. A face cord of 16" lengths=1/3 cord and a face cord of 24" lengths is a cord.

This is very confusing and deceiving to most and using these terms in offering sales or advertising for sale is prohibited in most states.

Ricks, Racks, Face Cords are not the same quanity or volume as a cord of measurement.

Best to all, have fun!!!!

Well. this is about as good as it gets.

Now, what more do you need. I think I told you that I had a bedfull so what part of a "bedfull" don't you understand???

Jeese, and no, you don't get any weight and my width is what I happen to cut it. What my truck weighs fully loaded with all my wood, WW in tow with Jeep loaded, and all my "antifreeze" onboard is my business and.....What was the question again? I don't have a long attention span and I think I ran out.

WWFan...Its all your fault, I think...........

little sensitive ehhh buddy??
well, i'm hopin' that we didn't get a row of 12" rick when we thought we were paying for 3 rows of 16" rick, ehhh Tommy??

but to be dagnab honest with you, it wouldn't matter one iota to us, Tom you are still one awesome guy,
lots of guys think they're getting a 1/4 cord and end up with a couple rows short,
just a little brew underneath the bridge far as we're concerned

Hey...you go out with whatever wood ya got, and tell us fireside bedtime stories like we were there...deal?!

Too much fun...AGAIN!!!

Sean

Since my remark earlier, had to go back on the road and just got back home. Man, work sucks. But, it pays the bills. And, the venison should be ready to pick up any day now.
