^ Yeah I am thinking about the 50 lb bags.. don't know. I will probably just use a bucket from the garage to the basement anyways.
So I checked out this wonderful older lady selling wood I spoke about above. She told me to drive her truck to my house (2 miles) and unload the wood. The following cost me 50 bucks. Its been cut 1.5 years and is all hardwood. The rest I get will be 3 years old in a barn. Again, full truck load for 50 bucks.
Very reasonable price and a great lady. She even gave me permission to hunt her 300 acres. She needs some help with some smaller things I told her I would take care of (HUGE pumpkins taken out of garden and put out for sale, rear view mirror fixed on her truck).
With my "special" fireplace, you don't burn alot of wood. I will get another 5 truck loads and I bet that's enough for the winter.
I am very fortunate to live in the "sticks" and I love every minute of the hospitality that comes with it.
