Cord of wood

4x4x8 or more exactly 128 cubic feet.

Correct, at least by Department of Commerce posts anyways.

If the wood is cut to 16", you'd need 3 rows 8 feet long and 4 feet high to make a full cord.

Which is why a "face cord" can be deceiving; which is one row 8 ft. long by 4 ft. high but the logs can be cut at shorter or longer lengths.

Be careful buying firewood. Some sellers advertise a stove cord. That's 8ft.long X4ft. High X 16inches; one third of a full cord. There are slippery sellers that can use creative stacking that can sell you half of what you pay for. And some of the stuff sold as seasoned wood was growing last week. Some sellers are totally honest and have long term customers but some are not. And not all trees are the same, fire-wood wise. Buyer beware.

As icehousebob said, be careful when buying wood. A stove cord or fireplace cord is much, much smaller than a true loggers cord of wood. 4'x4'x8' is it. A true cord is very hard to fit in the bed of a shortbox pickup truck. I've seen the difference of both a loggers cord and a fireplace cord in a truck and stacked on the ground and you would be very surprised. Ask whoever you are buying the wood what the difference between a fireplace cord and loggers cord is and see what they answer. If they tell you the truth buy from them. If not, go elsewhere.

    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
