Unplanned Cargo: A load of Osage Orange

Unplanned Cargo: A load of Osage Orange

Osage Orange burns almost hot as coal, and we some to appreciate using it in the wood burning stove we heat our home with. I quickly accepted Kent’s offer to pick up a load from his house, but didn’t realize exactly how much it was.

I estimate the load weighed between 50 and 100 lbs. I tied it down cam straps and was careful not to lean the top-heavy load much on turns. I was somewhat tired from previous rides, so I used the electric assist to easily pull the load home.
