Nov. 12th – I ❤️ stacking wood! Who knew? I just finished stacking the bad-ass wood rack. It’s like a meditation to me- putting on my gloves and grabbing from the pile- piece after piece and seeing where it perfectly fits as I stack… I get into a zone- I love the physicality of it and I love the puzzle-pieceness of it.

Before we had our first cord of wood of wood delivered at the gulch I hadn’t moved more than a 6 piece pre-packaged plastic-wrapped camping bundle. 

The bad-ass wood rack holds about 1/3 cord… (maybe a little less) so there is still a giant pile in the sand waiting for me when we use this up. 😊🔥
