    Looks like dead Lodgepole (Tamarack) pine. He’ll burn that much up in a day trying to stay warm.

    The kid or the parent that got the kid to work?

    my mother would call that a “lazy man load”.

    i call it being efficient.

    No, I see someone too lazy to make a second trip.

    • Klaus says:

      I agree. I would have made two trips with normal loads in the time it took him to make his little pyramid there. Whatever,at least he’s not on the couch playing video games.

    Being an “OCD” afflicted person I can see the perfectly good reason behind that stacking of the cordwood.

    Hopefully the path to the woodpile is as smooth as the gravel in the picture. First bump he hits or corner he turns & 1/2 of it will be on the ground. But then, the best lessons are always learned by fucking up.

    The question of the day is how far do they get before it all falls over?

    And he has a SMOOTH driveway.

  9. Winston Smith says:

    meh. Get back to me when he gets up those stairs intact.

    I have the exact same wheelbarrow!

  11. Mad Jack says:

    I think that’s been photoshopped. The wheel isn’t showing any sign of a heavy load, and the end user doesn’t look strong enough to actually move a load like that one. He’s soft and kind of fat looking. He might stack a load like that, but not move it.

    Anyone who could move a load like that one would know better than to stack it. He’d make two trips and avoid spilling the whole thing while fighting the wheelbarrow over a little bump.

    • Elmo says:

      If my guess is correct (that it’s dead Lodgepole) that load is lighter that a normal wheelbarrow load of semi-green oak.
      You can tell the wood was dead when cut because of the blue stain.

      • DeNihilist says:

        Yup Elmo, definitely beetle kill pine. I have bucked up enough of that in the last 15 years to know it with my eyes closed!

        • Elmo says:

          On the bright side, it’s easy on a saw and not too tough to split, unlike the gnarly old oak I’m dealing with now that I’m older.
          Funny how that worked out.

    All and all, it looks like too much work anyway…
