    Had an eye on that one for a while and so far i could only get a few pieces off. Bad back and all that. Today I applied my limited engeenering skills and wedged the blighted out of the ground. This is only half of it...........wedged it out by using a long and strong green branch. Now I figure, being 63, that this bu€€er give me enough fatwood for the rest of my days

    Thanks guys. Wasn't really bad once I had some good leverage
    Next thing I'll do is cut it in half and then split it into handy pieces

    Just wondering why they get so much more FatWood in the USA.
