Are Canadians All Lumberjacks – How to Split Firewood
Canadians are all lumberjacks. Well this lumberjack is gonna show you the easiest way to split wood!
A typical stereotype for the Canadian male species! As an introduction, I have Canadian illustrator Kate Beaton’s hilarious comic strip from “Hark, A Vagrant“. Take it away, Kate!
HAR HAR HAR!!!! Check out Kate Beaton’s website – her comic strips also involve history + literature + they’re funny as hell.
When I was engaged to Jeff, Americans would actually ask me if he was a lumberjack. I’m not kidding.
Well….he kind of is.
This winter, Jeff is obsessed with firewood. In British Columbia, if you chop down a tree, by law you have to plant another tree. On Craigslist there are tons of ads for free log rounds. Jeff took many a trip with his trusty trailer collecting rounds.
Somebody help me.
Oh wait, no. That’s one of the guys from the History Channel’s show, “Mountain Men”. My mistake.
His brother Tom taught Jeff the most ingenious + easy way to git yerself some firewood from these leviathans. All’s you need is a sledge hammer, this chain with a rubber bungee + a sharp splitting wedge.
DANGER!!! Good thing I was standing at a distance. I like my toes, thank you.
HAHAHAHAA!!!! Just kidding! I staged that photo! Powerade for Canucks!
Well, we’ve got enough firewood to last us forever. You’d think we lived in a cabin in the Northwest Territories. But we don’t. Plus, it’s been really mild this winter in Vancouver. But Jeff loves chopping his firewood. So I leave him to it.
