Log Pile!

11 01 2018

Since I’ve moved to the ‘wilds’ of Cumbria, well at least a very rural hamlet, I’ve gained a log burner. I’m still crap at lighting it unfortunately but am hoping I’ll learn.

One thing I have been good at though, is getting in wood. I haven’t bothered buying any, just waited until after the Autumn gales and then gone out on foot with my bag and my saw looking for fallen wood of a decent size. I saw up some of it in situ – one woodland even has a handy river bridge on the road where you can use the walls as a multi-height saw bench! The rest I carry home as long logs and saw in the back yard.

Anyway, this is my full log pile sitting drying – all got by my own grubby hands!

Not bad eh! 🙂 Mind you, with the very cold winter we’re having this year, it goes down quickly once you start…
