Otis has met too many people that can’t put up even a single cord of firewood. For many Otises, this is the very first metric they consider - can a person put up three cords of firewood in a day?

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (<2 mins):
- harvesting some of the firewood that you will put up
- action shot of putting up firewood
- three cords of firewood stacked properly

However, I suspect the underlying purpose of the comment is that 100 years ago, people did tasks like that from an early age and spent far less time sitting on their butts. I suspect that the general underlying level of fitness is the real point here. My grandmother "walked to the shops with a basket to buy food for dinner" on a daily basis whereas people now drive in a car and let the car carry the food home.

For accuracy's sake I should point out that I have 10 and 16 year old boys. So by "I" I mean "they", hahaha.
