Somethings in life should be free, right? I definitely think so:)

So, we stopped by the Ostrich Farm on our way to Auga Caliente for camping. Not only does this place sell ostrich jerky, but you can also get wood there (and did MIKEY need wood). ANYWAYS, I thought it extremely ridiculous and somewhat of a joke to see that wood was $25/wheel barrel full! We had the whole back of Mike's truck to fill with wood, and @ $25 a small wheel barrel??? Yikes! Especially when at home we can practically get it for free (at a physical cost maybe, but its still cheaper). I just think if funny. One would think that since trees in the wilderness are in the wilderness, you could just get wood for free. But like the rest of recreation in California, people use the "Great Outdoors" as a way to make money (yet another thing to capitalize after). I just hope some people think this is as funny and I did. Ha, ha...needless to say, we ended up getting a deal at $50 to fill the back of the truck (Jose was winking quite a bit at the guy, but I just thought he had something in his eye...?). So, I guess I should be happy since we did need wood. WORD.








.peace.


P.S. This is the 1st of will hopefully be many blogs on this site...a new year, a new blog site. Yeah, for 2008!

A wheel barrel full of Avocado's are cheaper then a Wheel Barrel full of wood? I say BURN the Avocado's i'm sure the pits can produce some heat. :)

And $50.00 bucks for a truck load of wood. Thats good! up here it's $100-$150.00 for a truck load,.

Hahaha, yeah that is funny. A bit ridiculous, I hate that people make you pay for wood. How long did you have your fire going?? Did you use it all? Cuz a whole truck load is either a lot of little fires or a really long one... Or a really big one! Haha, uh, Happy New Years! Nice blog too... And this is Dezi

My family would die. Did the wood burn like high quality, expensive wood should burn?

Ostrich jerkey is sticky, yet very tasty. And did I mention expensive?
