Randy, I agree and I have brought more wood home than fish after my last few trips to the river. I didn’t bring much home so I guess that makes me a bad fisherman. I pick through my firewood pile a lot too. My wife gets annoyed because I’ll look over a piece of wood from every angle to see if there is anything interesting or unusual before throwing it in the stove. You are in a great area for Osage Orange of course. My grandparents old place, which is where my younger brother now lives, is in Claryville, just across the river from you. The last two years in a row, I brought some Osage back with me after visiting. Okay, so technically it’s not local wood for me anymore, but it’s local to where I grew up anyway and was destined to be firewood if I didn’t save it.

I like collecting wood when I travel.
I’m hoping to go to the mountains of western North Carolina this year.
I plan on bringing back some river cane, butternut, rhododendron and mountain laurel.
