Call Randy McCloud or his son Brian. They probably have ranks for sale. Their numbers are listed.

I think it's the same size as a rick, but it smells bad.

A "rank" of wood is a pile of wood "regularly, and evenly laid up," though one source suggests that sometimes a rank of wood is considered to be approximately half a cord,
( http://extension.missouri.edu/explore/ag ...

A "rick" of wood is specifically: "four feet high by eight feet long and is as wide as the individual firewood pieces, but averages 16 inches wide."

The cord is a unit of measure of dry volume used in Canada and the United States to measure firewood and pulpwood. A cord is the amount of wood that, when "ranked and well stowed" (arranged so pieces are aligned, parallel, touching and compact), occupies a volume of 128 cubic feet (3.62 m3).[1] This corresponds to a well stacked woodpile 4 feet (122 cm) high, 8 feet (244 cm) long, and 4 feet (122 cm) deep; or any other arrangement of linear measurements that yields the same volume.
The name cord probably comes from the use of a cord or string to measure it.[2]
