I,m guessing a panel is a buncha 1x6 nailed in  something like an 8ft panel.opportunity for someone with a bandsaw mill and his own allotement of land. not sure if they have many private lands over yonder
of all the things I,ve lost.. I miss my mind, the most

Lots of private land, not a lot of trees. :)
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
