Yesterday was our first family wood hauling day. By fall we would like to have about 8 cords of wood hauled and stacked. Just in time for having the stove installed! In the Yukon it is very easy to get a permit to head out to cut your own wood. It is free and you can take up to 11 cords of standing dead per year. We have a 30km stretch of road we are allowed to gather wood from and we found a nice little spot yesterday that we can easily take a couple of cords without even having to take the quads out to pull logs.
The boys had a great time and were even fairly helpful! We got half a truck load in just under two hours before the rain arrived and we had to head for home.
