We don't always do a fire at night. A lot of times when we do it's just a duraflame with a piece or two of real wood. I took down a bunch of tree limbs about 3 years ago so I had a bunch of wood laying around. I can't believe it, but we used just about ALL of my wood up this camping season and that was using it sparingly. We also bought a few bags from Home Depot from time to time.
I decided enough was enough with those little bags so I finally had a 1/2 cord delivered today for $95. I've spent the last few hours stacking it in my yard and tool shed. I've counted as I went along and did 4 trips at 100 pieces per trip. Id say there are 200-250 pieces left in my driveway that I'll move tomorrow.
So in case you were wondering, there's about 600-650 pieces in a half cord. That equals about 52 of those little orange bags and at about $9 per bag, that's about $450 if you got a 1/2 cord of wood in those little bags. That's about $0.75 per log. Compare that with buying in bulk and a half cord is $95. That comes out to be less then $0.16 per log.
Oh, and here's a pic.
