Firewood Gathering

Firewood Gathering

It’s that time of year again–our yearly firewood gathering is underway! For the past four years, we’ve been driving up to Kamas (about 3 hours driving time round-trip) to gather firewood. This year, we won’t have to drive far for our firewood gathering. There’s a Winter parking lot on the mountain where everyone takes trees that have been cut down from their property. They dump them into a huge pile, and whoever wants them can just take them from the pile (as long as they don’t mind some digging). Some of the wood is old, and some of it’s new, so it’s just a matter of sorting to find what you’re looking for.

On Sunday, we got two truckloads of firewood that we took back to our rental cabin. The owner of the cabin recommended that we get 6 chords of firewood, but she’s having a furnace installed in the cabin for the first time so we might not need that much. Andy will have to cut and split the firewood still, but at least we got a good start. It won’t be long before we start having fires in the wood-burning stove here. Already the leaves are starting to change, so we’ve got to start preparing. We’re both looking forward to the beautiful Autumn leaves!
