    I'm hurting. We hauled 3 HUGE loads of firewood yesterday. A neighbor of ours took down some oak trees in their backyard. Dh talked to them the other week about us getting it then he started working overtime. So yesterday a friend of ours called and asked if I was up to him coming over and helping with it. Can't turn down free help so.....we got some pieces that were so big we had to roll them up in the truck. Then we got a load of smaller stuff. The next load we took the log splitter down and my truck was so loaded the tires were half flat it looked. I got my cardio workout yesterday! I am stiff today though. I took aleve last night cause I was hurting. We'll go back next weekend and hopefully get the rest....at least 3 more loads. On the bright side I have wood already for this winter and this will put a huge dent in what I need next year!

    Hope you're feeling better, next week will not be as bad as you have already limbered up. Then you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

    What a great deal. Definitely worth it, even though you are a little sore today. Unfortunately, even though we do have a wood burning fireplace, we have a lot of no-burn days around here because of air quality issues. I would love to be able to burn more wood and use less electricity.

    Hope you feel better soon. Hauling wood is work but the heat is all worth it in the end run. We heat with wood too.

    He who gathers his own wood is twice warmed. Heard that from my grandmother many, many years ago.
