The firewood is not fresh, it's been seasoned and waiting for me since last year. I ordered it back then(and honestly speaking I forgot I did) and it got delivered last week. One more pile like this is behind my garage.Nice picture! Is that fresh wood means you can use it not before 2023/2024? Have you made it yourself? I have made this year also first time firewood myself. So far we have bought the wood from a friend in our shooting club. My landlord owns a small forest but is not interested to make any firewood. So we made some firewood there together with my father in law and another friend from the shooting club who owns a tractor. Totgether with two old professionals it was a hard but interesting work. Now I know how at least a bit to handle a chain saw and nobody in the shooting club will ever laugh at me because I'm not able to cut some bushes at the shooting gallery The job had nothing to do with general energy situation but of course it's a goof feeling of having it here. Prices for firewood also increased here for more than 100% and it is really hard to get any dry wood for the winter even if I live at the countryside. Because of home office last two years we have already used ~80% wood for heating, only bath room and warm water came from natural gas.

I joined the Shooting Club years ago but have been too lazy to get through the whole procedure, exams, papers, and so on. I can thank Putin for speeding up my movementsGood decision! Joining a shooting club was one of the the best decisions my wife and me have eveer done.
You pay also around 200€ for the cubic meter mixed wood in the hardware store here. I payed 90€ for the meter beech, three years old, splitted in log. Our supllier incriesed only the price for getting the trees and gasoline. Both has not increases much (5€ per meter). At least the private people are allowed to cut more trees here and they do but it is for the next years.I know several guy who sell firewood. The problem now is not the price which went up 400% this year( we pay 200euros for one cubic meter), it's the availability. Rangers do not allow to cut trees, even to guys who do it professionally. Since the f.... war started people went crazy!!!
If I'll ever have to use my rifles outside the shooing range - and I hope I won't - it won't be because Putin. It would be probably to defend my family and my supplies againt hungy and freezing people. People that in that situation because our government has decided to take the risk of a blackout instaed of using Russian oel, natural gas and coal and to switch off nuclear power plants in times of scarce electricity for the green ideology. Putin does not has to come over here to destroy our country, the liberals are making his job perfect.I joined the Shooting Club years ago but have been too lazy to get through the whole procedure, exams, papers, and so on.
