Log Run

Over the weekend, Lisa started to unload the Press-to-Logs from the utility trailer.

Pallet Trouble

This was challenging due to the way the pallet started leaning over.

Pallet Trouble

The pallet leaned so far over that it was leaning against the front rail of the trailer.

Lisa carefully pulled logs out, as if playing Jenga with a tower that literally weighs one ton.

After Lisa quit for the first day of unloading, while I was taking food to leave out for the birds, I heard the tower give way and crumple forward. Many of the logs broke into two or more pieces. Because of the way they are made, the pieces "key" together and can still be stacked, but it's a hassle.

Halfway Home

Here's what the wood box looked like with maybe 40-50% of the pallet unloaded. Lisa rearranged the existing wood in the box. The larger logs on the the right are the North Idaho Energy Logs, which are much larger.

One Ton Jenga

Because of the collapsing pallet, it was hard to count how many Press-to-Logs are in a pallet. We'll need to do some calculating if the cost works out the same per unit of energy as the North Idaho Logs.

Nearly Done

As of this afternoon, we're almost done, although as most of the remaining logs are broken, it's still going to take a little while to finish up.

I have helped Lisa when she asks. This morning I took 30-40 minutes out of my morning after my team meeting (after telling the rest of the team I would be away for a little while). I don't mind doing the work. Indeed, given the Lisa brought me in a waffle this morning as I was starting work, I felt like it was important that I get some exercise toting wood. My blood sugar level thanked me for it.
