The axe cordwood challenge is nearly over. I'm closing in on my own cord and 3 people have already cut a cord or more. I'm adding a 1 week extension, just because this is the first year and we got started kind of late. Actually it's mostly because I want people to have time and not rush too much since that is inherently more dangerous. I still hope to finish mine by June 1st, because it just takes time to dry wood even in our hot summers and June 1st is a good last date to have green firewood cut. I'm thinking about how to make it more accessible to people in the Southern Hemisphere in the future. If you finish the challenge, send me info and pics or links to videos by June 7th through the contact on this website. Also, leaving comments on the official Axe Cordwood Challenge page is a good idea as well. I think a lot of people would like to know what axes participants used and what you learned whether you finished or not, and the comments section on that page is a good place to leave those. I'll probably create a page for the 2017 challenge and post all the various links and experiences there. I've heard from a lot of people who were maybe going to do it and more that have just been using their axes more and practicing and having fun with that. No one said this completely sucks and I hate it and didn't learn anything, lol. It's been pretty much good feedback all around and it's been fun having this thing in common with a group of people.
