RE: Thinking with my brain for once

in #homesteading2 years ago

Splitting wood is one of those things that is better left to one's self. The fact of the matter is that it takes so much handling to deal with it. At a minimum, you cut the tree, cut the rounds, if you're lucky, split the rounds right there, load the firewood, unload the firewood, stack the firewood, haul the firewood into the house and then burn the firewood. It's about the most inefficient thing done on a homestead, yet it is so rewarding. So, any chance you get to make that task simpler is a life saver and I applaud you for always trying to make it easier.


It really is inefficient but seriously satisfying and a really solid work out. Granted I have the tendency to push myself a bit too hard but there is a certain feeling of accomplishment that happens when standing in front of a nicely stacked pile of firewood that few other things can match. I find that life is a constant process of consolidating effort into the most effective and timely way possible.

But it's more efficient than buying preformed fake logs which had to be shipped hundreds of miles... :-)
