I’m still alive!

B&A Stowaway here! I’ve been busy at tech school in Texas, sorry I haven’t been checking in. Any readers from the Wichita Falls area? I have to get back to homework, but I wanted to share a picture of what my neighbor ( back in Michigan) once referred to as a ‘cord of wood’. The guy that sold him this ‘cord’ may have taken advantage of him a bit. 

“A full cord is a large amount of wood. It measures four feet high by four feet wide by eight feet long (4 ft. x 4 ft. x 8 ft.) and has a volume of 128 cubic feet. The amount of solid wood in a cord varies depending on the size of the pieces, but for firewood it averages about 85 cubic feet. The rest of the cord volume is air space.” (http://www.woodheat.org/cord-wood.html)
