The first lot of wood I got was about twice as expensive as what I've got now... thing is the second time you've had more time to look around.

So Acoma, if I were you, what with patience not being one of my strongest points, I'd probably end up getting a bit of the high priced wood so you can start your curing fires, and in the meantime shop around for a regular supplier/plan.

Robert - here are a few. Still looks pretty pricey for hardwood. If you need wood just for your curing at this time, I would think you could pretty much burn anything. Go to Lowes and snatch a few pallets.

Les, I have scrap fence board (non stained), and scrap construction board too. Enough to do the fires. I found a guy on Craigs list in the Sac area that had a cord+ of free wood, looks like Oak. Gone in a day. He said he may have more of this soon. He mentioned he would email me as well. If this happens you and I could get it (with your truck?) and split the wood, if your interested. If not, I will find a way.

I am finding wood in the low to mid 200's for Seasoned Oak around Loomis, Auburn areas. At least my research is getting me refined with cost and supplier choices..

Free is good - I'm interested. I drove down to the bay area yesterday and picked up a load of walnut, it was free as well (other than the price of gas).

I didn't get a full load - I was concerned about the weight with a drive that far and the idiots on the road. I only had to brake hard once but that was enough.

Les, I have a guy from Grass Valley with chuncks of Black Oak He will sell split pieces per cord to me for 150 each, wow! I am buying 2 cords, and will pick them up a week from Saturday. If you like the price of this AWESOME deal, let me know asap. He has to split the logs up and needs the time. This will not be a yearly shot. I figure you should get a cord too. Let me know.

Definitely! How much for un-split, I have a splitter. We need to figure out the logistics, can you pull a trailer with your SUV?

I have bought $350+ delivered, cured oak (it's almost too nice to just burn), and $125 wet pine. I'm not happy with either of them.

Where's the happy median?

Les, I am sure un split would be great! I was going to rent a u-haul. Let me call him and ask the price of unsplit. If that is the case, what about this Saturday? Do you want 1 or 2 cords? If we can get it at 100-125 per cord, I am committed to 2. Let me know quickly. Oh ya, email me your phone number...
