Somebody told us that we give too many Fs.too picky. finnicky. persnickety. Too obsessive.Its true.& its why were slow sometimes.Cause every. little. thing. matters.We sweat the small stuff.Our campers appreciate dry firewood thats local, seasoned, elevated, stacked in cords, comes with carrying totes & split for cooking, fireplaces & pits.They like charcoal that they dont have to shovel out or make another supply run for. Around here, this stuff is about as luxury as we get (along with our beer van stocked with PBR, our flower trolley & complimentary ice).We just finished our campers supply shed. Its a luxury by our standards, stocked with the essentials & some details that most folks will never notice :+ The axe strap is a vintage 1950s tooled belt.+ The hatchet is a 1970s BSA issue.+ The iron hooks that hold the bags are 1920s utility industrial hooks.+ The Brown is a Pantone match to National Park std issue paint.+ The signs are hand made on the templates on our sign router (the state parks use)+ The yellow Firewood cord totes from a Northwoods supply co. The guy who built this for is called Mike The Chicken Coop Guy. Hes built 3 structures for us now, none of them house hens.This type of woodrick is not a good investment if youre looking at economies of money & time.(The pre-built big box store plastic version may even work better ) But then we wouldnt have any details to labor over- and we wouldnt get to be called too much.99% of folks wont see this stuff, get it, or give a damn. But its that 1% that do that were here for.were always looking for those one percenters.AND NOW, SOME USELESS WOOD TRIVIA.rick is a description of the way a cord of wood is stacked. A cord is 4x4x8 feet, and a standard cord is piled in a 4×8-foot stack, or rick. Rick also refers to a stack of any other material, such as hay, left out in the open air. A rick or face cord of firewood is the same height and width as a full cord. The difference is that a full cord measures 4 feet deep, a rick or face cord 16×18.
