Stacking Firewood

Firewood, for a long term S hit the fan situation, its going to be the primary way that people are going to be cooking and heating their homes.

One of the ways I’am going to be using firewood post-SHTF is in my wood burning barbeque pit. It has a cooking surface 6 feet 9 inches long, and is 29 inches across. In other words, I wanted something big enough that I could cook a hog or a deer on it.

When stacking firewood in the truck or trailer, its very important not to stack the wood too high.  If the wood is stacked too high, there is a chance of the wood rolling off the truck or trailer when turns are made when driving home.

To prevent the logs from rolling, stack them only as high as the top of the truck or trailer. And maybe lash the wood down with some straps.

Logs that roll off during transportation pose a safety hazard to other vehicles on the road.   Extreme care should be taken to make sure that your firewood collection does not harm those that have to share the road with you.
