Great use of the platform. Can I suggest you invite people on a Facebook post to Loomio as there are some members not on here yet :nerd:

Tara Wed 10 Apr 2019

Hi Paul, I have added a post to Facebook - just in case :)

Who's your supplier, I wanted hard wood and got quotes from here http://www.exeterlogs.co.uk/

T

Tara Wed 10 Apr 2019

I was also going to use those, for kilne dried (last year we used hard wood and they were damp so didnt light :( )

Lynne on FB said the company she used last year offered a bulk discount, just waiting to hear back from her :)

AM

Alex Macklen Wed 10 Apr 2019

The minimum they would deliver in the quote I got would be 2 of the large dumpy bags. One hardwood and one softwood. Softwood is much easier to light and you need a decent fire to get hardwood to burn. Also comes with 4 bags of kindling.

T

Tara Wed 10 Apr 2019

Ok that sounds great. I have someone on FB advising a cheaper option, I’m just waiting to hear from them and see if it’s cheaper. Essentially we want as many people to chip (wood pun) in as possible for the delivery so the site don’t have too much traffic for delivery.

Panravia will need about 1m3 and would be up to join the group order. Do we have any price estimate?

T

Tara Fri 12 Apr 2019

Nothing as yet, I’m away for 2 weeks now so can chase that when back - Baillie said that she had a supplier that offered discount for large orders but I have not heard from her as yet. Standard i think it’s about £80 per load.

I'm guessing they aren't very technical and still love phone calls.

Dean Mon 29 Apr 2019

Hey. Thanks for sorting this! Crumpet would like about 1 cubic metre of wood, maybe a little bit more. Do you reckon one crate would be about the equivalent? Or maybe 1 and a half large dumpy bags, if anyone needs a half (maybe split the second one with Mojo?)

T

Tara Tue 30 Apr 2019

Happy to sort it, I’m sure we can work something out! Mojo won’t need more than half a large bag I don’t think.

T

Tara Sat 4 May 2019

I have added the sheet to this thread :)

S

Sabrina Tue 30 Apr 2019

@dean20 have a look on their website for the crate size : http://www.exeterlogs.co.uk/pricelist.htm

It looks like a crate is about 2 cubic meter. Panravia needs 1 cubic meter so we could potentially split the crate between our 2 camps?

D

Dean Wed 1 May 2019

@sabrina63 It's a bit of a tricky one as "1 cubic metre" normally refers to the wood being quite closely packed in that volume. In the picture, it looks like the dumpy bags are closely packed whereas the crate is quite loose (hence the comparative cheapness of the crate for that volume).

@tara10 could you possible get them on the phone and work out roughly what the trade off between bags and crates is in actual quantity of wood?

T

Tara Mon 6 May 2019

Hi Sabrina, shall I put you down for one large dumpy bag, as this is about 3/4s of a loose load. Could this be what you need?

T

Tara Tue 30 Apr 2019

Ah good stuff. If you could both let me know by the 11th? I’ll get the order in!

C

Case Wed 1 May 2019

We'll want about half a big bag if you want to share that Tara? (we'd both pay less and get slightly less 325 vs 340 cm3) Otherwise we'd like a small bag please

C

Case Wed 1 May 2019

Oh, and we would like hardwood rather than softwood or pine please - it's for a firepit that will be used for cooking

C

Case Thu 2 May 2019

And apparently I was failing at maths yesterday. Put 000 after each of those numbers of cm3!

T

Tara Sat 4 May 2019

Sheet and comment below :) x

T

Tara Mon 6 May 2019

I have added to the sheet a small dumpy for you guys and one for us as we need a mix of soft and hard x

T

Tara Thu 2 May 2019

I’m not really sure what the size is in no mathematical understanding terms, but the unit we get at home is usually the back of a range-rover truck load...

T

Tara Thu 2 May 2019

Hi Dean, sure I’ll call them tomorrow and get some further information for us all. I’ll then stick up a spreadsheet for both Loomio and FB to get this order started. Thanks for your patience I’m juggling a lot at work and home - should be back to normal come tomorrow 👍 x

T

Tara Sat 4 May 2019

Hi all, I spoke to the company. They said that one large dumpy bag is the equivalent of one crate. I am not sure if that helps? Either way: I’ll attach a spread sheet for peoples orders and upload for you to fill out.
Exeter logs want to know the order no later than Friday next week, so I’ll share this to the Facebook Nest page too :)

T

Tara Sun 5 May 2019

The doc is editable now too! Sorry 😂

D

Dean Sun 5 May 2019

It's still only in suggestion mode for me. I've sent a request for editing access.

Anyway, Camp Crumpet will take 1.5 large dumpy bags. Thanks for your work on this! <3

T

Tara Mon 6 May 2019

Hi Dean,

Thanks! I have updated again after asking a youth how to Internet...
I have updated the spreadsheet - do you want hard logs/ soft/ a mixture of both?

D

Dean Mon 6 May 2019

Just hardwood please! xx

T

Tara Mon 6 May 2019

Payment details have now been added :)

C

Case Tue 7 May 2019

Do you have a taker for your other half bag? (I can't remember if I saw something. We'd be a relevant sharer)

T

Tara Tue 7 May 2019

I have seen that @aussiefred wants to share a bag if that helps?

T

Tara Mon 6 May 2019

Added :)

A

AussieFred Tue 7 May 2019

I've put the order into the sheet, I have found my 1/2 bag takers.

T

Tara Tue 7 May 2019

Perfect :) thanks!

D

Dean Tue 7 May 2019

A small bag is approximately the same volume as half a large bag. @case1 or @aussiefred would you be willing to share 2 big bags between us, with us paying for and taking 1.5 bags worth? (You can keep the actual bag if you like, for convenience) If not, we'll change our order to one large bag and one small one.

C

Case Wed 8 May 2019

It works out as cheaper to share a bag, hence us looking (if no one wants to share we'll get a small one, but I would like to try to save the camp budget a little bit!)

C

Case Wed 8 May 2019

So yes please, order 2 bags and I'll get you £55 and a way for us to move the wood around :-) (I am a bear of little brain today)

D

Dean Wed 8 May 2019

OK cool. Tara has suggested I pay £165 and you pay £55, or would you prefer I cover it and then you pay me back?

C

Case Thu 9 May 2019

Cool, if we both pay Tara that works. Time to go do it!

T

Tara Thu 9 May 2019

Hi Dean, I think that was the cost of what you were after - adjust it any way you need for the order you are placing 🙂

T

Tara Thu 9 May 2019

@dean20 Case has paid £55 now - are you sorting the rest?

A

AussieFred Tue 7 May 2019

I’m up for sharing. I’m trying to avoid loading, unloading or double handling. My hope is my small bag fits dropped up top at the camping fields.
I imagine they will only drop bag to bag in the requested locations

So I think I’m out.

T

Tara Wed 8 May 2019

Hey,

Exeter Logs said they would drop the delivery at several different places in the site as long as it was along the road, including free camping, and someone will have a wheel barrow or trolley to assist I'm sure...does that help?
Thanks
Tara

A

AussieFred Wed 8 May 2019

The barrow problem is exactly what I'm avoiding by getting our own. So I'll stick with a small.

A

Amandasm Sat 11 May 2019

maybe don't share the address as this forum is public?

T

Tara Sat 11 May 2019

Sorry I thought it was private to Nest goers. I’ll delete it. Thanks for getting in touch.

A

Amandasm Mon 13 May 2019

no worries! :)

C

Case Sat 11 May 2019

Hey hey, when is the delivery? (apologies if I'm being dense). (all the panic of trying to work out camp timelines) (decides it's time for bed, y'all just gave me a new platform to keyboard spew on)

T

Tara Sat 11 May 2019

Heyaaaa, woods going to be delivered Monday - I have the site map so I can tell Exeter Logs where they can drop individual orders to each camp. Don’t panic it’s all covered 🙂

C

Case Mon 13 May 2019

You are a magic human (does this mean I don't get to play with my shiny new Go Outdoors membership card to buy a trolley to move ours down from Crumpet? sadface (seriously avoid that shop. So tempting. Although most of the spend was essentials. Like hi-viz actually waterproof cycling gloves))
