    Road trip needed...

    ...for a couple of short logs (4+ feet each, 7-8" dia and 11-12" dia).

    I was hoping some snow birds that migrate from the Midwest (Indiana) to the Southwest (Arizona) might have room for two hitchhiking chucks of lovely wood.

    Or maybe there are some family members that will pass them along if a direct route isn't possible.

    Don't know that this has been tried before, but, hey, with this family anything is possible.

    These are for spinny stuff and I am sure proper rewards are possible for participation in this cross-country tour de wood - for wood! Go figure!

    From Indiana to Arizona.

    Sorry I wasn't clear. Guess I assumed most people knew snowbirds flew south in the winter.

    Looks like we sold our house in Indiana and I'll be moving my bride to Idaho in mid November. Coming across I-80 to Utah, then up I-84. I can drop them off anywhere along that route.

    A few days too late...my parents just arrived in AZ yesterday. Spoke with them a little while ago and they said their friends from Indiana were already there too.

    That's OK, I think Dad was cold anyway. The blood thinners do a number on him now days.

    Carol - Any update on this? Were you able to arrange transportation?

    Thanks for the bump, Rennie. No you were the only one who responded thus far. What is your route back from the Midwest and the time frame? Maybe someone can hook up. I am willing to drive a few hundred miles north, like Salt Lake, maybe.

    If all goes according to plan.....

    I'll be leaving Elkhart on the morning of 11/19. From there I have stops in Des Moines (11/19) and Palmer, IA (11/20). Then down to Lincoln, NE (11/20), Loveland, CO, (11/21) Little America, WY (11/22). My route will be along I-80 except for the detours in IA and CO. Over the mountains to Ogden where I pick up I-84 to Boise 11/23).

    If I can meet up with anyone along the way to move your wood I'd be happy to do so. We're on a tight schedule, so I can't promise much social time (apologies to Rex, Jeff and his dad and any others in IA that I will not be able to meet up with on this trip) (though I might sneak a few minutes in the Woodsmith store)
