    Good work. I was doing a bit of eucalyptus splitting this morning myself but unfortunately it was with an axe.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    True. My old man was an axe man in his younger years and I wish I had his swing and ability with an axe. Mind you at least I don't scuff the handle which is a good thing as I am sure he would reach out from the grave and still clip me under the ear if I did.

    There's another law of the universe that says.

    The amount of wood burnt over winter is directly proportional to the amount of wood split and stacked in the shed.

    Cheers

    My wife would get threw 10 cord of bone dry two year seasoned manuka and beach and a wellside of west coast coal when we had babys and a small totaly uninsulated house.
    Almost halved when we got it insulated(just floor and ceiling) and put in a new fire.

    heat pumps now,not allowed a fire at our new old house.

    tho I am cranking up the brasier tonight for her birthday party

    So true, picked up another load for splitting this afternoon, probably need another 3 trailer loads to make her happy this year.
    On the positive side I just take the trailer to work and fill it up there before heading home

    Speaking of firewood, this was all rings at 11 this morning. 5 hours of swinging an axe and I had it all split and tidied up. One break at lunch to eat a pie and have a coffee. By 430 I was about buggered. Haha

    Half pine/mac and half rata. This should last us out the winter, although we've burnt a fair bit already!



    Wasn't what I had planned for the day but oh well, done now.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Yeah I know Toby, but I don't mind swinging an axe too much, providing the wood splits ok!!

    Each to there own and Im not saying anyones burning wet wood but I like to get my shed stacked at the end of winter, then its got all summer and autumn to fully dry out. It always cracked me up when I was working in the bush some of my workmates would only start taking green rings home when it started getting cold
