My "system" is plastic milk crates (please don't turn me in for the reward!) Normal winter days (no precip.) I keep 3-4 on the porch at a time and bring in a canvas "wood bag/with rack" full to warm up before loading. Storms coming I do 6 and this year I'll be able to reach right outside the porch door and snatch 'em right off the loader! No wheelbarrow and NO STEPS!
Working smarter, not harder. Bet u wish you bought that loader years ago. I'd rather lose a kidney then my loader.
