Been there, done that.

My situation right now could look like that to a consultant.  I was telling one
of my consultant buddies today that we were backing off of bid sales because we
had enought winter wood to keep our producers busy.  To buy wood at todays
prices that we can't cut till June would be suicide.  So were now trying to
pimp some summer tracts.  <g>
