    I had an old pine tree in my back yard that snapped off halfway up during Katrina. Decided to take it down today. The top branches alone have yielded more than 50lbs of fat lighter. More than enough for my fire starting needs this winter.
    I'm not even a quarter of the way done. :wow:

    I'm thinking I'll sell the rest. The going rate seems to be $1.50/lb.

Did a tune up, new timing chain, and head gasket and she purrs like a champ. it was just going to be a toy but its slowly becoming my daily driver lol the little bugger has really grown on me... lol

    I am soon to be selling my Toyota to fund more pressing needs. Also why I'm glad I found the tree out back could be exploited financially.

    Hope to see you at one of those mud bogs before I sign her over to a new owner.

    Man I LOVE fat lighter. The land my pops left me is full of it everywhere and he'd always call it "Money in the Bank." Thanks for bringing up some good memories friend! I'd say sell it, money in the bank right there.

    We always called them pine knots.
