Made my last trip to the mountains and now it is time to get it bucked up and stacked.

No the splitter works plenty fast for me as is.    I caught my little finger once already between a piece of wood and the end plate.    It took a couple of months to get better.     So things are fast enough, but that was funny.

how do you load your logs busting your gut or do you have some sort of lifter

I am still lifting them by hand and will continue for as long as I can.   It is a lot of work and sweat.   But it is a hobby I really like so when your passionate about something you do not mind the effort that goes into it.    Plus I really like heating with wood.   Something about seeing the flames in the wood stove that just makes it feel homey during winter time.

Yes I hear you there I love gathering my wood my wife thinks I have an illness when I get a call from a friend telling me tree down or broken branch on so and so street I cant wait to get at it, and with the cost of wood 360 a ton and up, locally 18 kilogram bags of wood selling at service stations at 20 dollars a pop equates to about 50 cents a pound. Often get to a log to find local firewood guys grabbing it but happy to take what they don't want often 3 inch and under but sometimes I am lucky.
My wife says you have stacks already  but that wont last I say if I don't top it up. But she does love the warmth of a wood fire and I sell 2 or 3 trailer loads of wood to an older friend I make nothing really on it but it covers my chains and fuel for the saws for the year and saves him getting ripped off.
