Where'd you pick that up? Looks like a Princess Auto deal?

My girlfriend said to tell you that she likes your Chevy. She's always had a soft spot for the old Shortbed Stepside's.
It's a pretty sharp little truck.

Cutting while wearing an extra 10lbs of mud on your feet and trying to avoid crushing anymore soybeans than have been already and it is hot a humid out.
Haha , that thing is great

I lit my first fire of the season last night. Just a small one, 1 regular split and a couple of small odd ball shaped pieces. I already know my wood this year's better than last, it's all at least 2 years old now. Last year I had to use stuff I actually had to pay for, supposedly "seasoned" but it didnt' burn well and I had a ton O creosote build up.

Yep yep, I have been burning off and on for two weeks now. We had some light valley frost two nights ago.

On a different note I was thinking of seeing what everyone thought the best smelling wood is when burnt. I am partial to red elm but wild cherry is good also. I thought about creating a poll, but it seemed there are too few wood burners to justify a separate thread.

Same here. I lit the old cookstove on Sunday AM because it was 60 degrees in the house. At that point, listening to the girlfriend complain outweighs my desire to show off my awesome sweater collection.

Still a nice looking truck, regardless.
It's no Tacoma, but not bad for a 30 year old Chevy!

I Burn about 5 cords in a jotel, basically I have a fire 24 hours a day, sometimes down to a few hot coals, but the stove never gets cold. I have a 1920's craftsman bungled with very drafty windows, zero insulation and live in central mass, outside worcester in the hills. Colder usually by 5-10* then most if the stat except far west! and the elevation brings more snow.

I have a Stihl 361 with a 20 inch bar and several axes. I can usually find a cord or 2 for nothing other than labor, but lately found an awesome supplier. Splits for me into a rollback, no dirt or extra bark. Clean and dry. Cheap too. My back is fubar, and time us money, so this is great for me.

I leave a large box fan accross the room to move the heat. I also have 4 quart pan on the stove top I fill several times a day if water for added moisture.

Just cleaned my liner and stove, 6 cords covered and dry, ready to go.

Mine's the same way. Once it gets down below freezing all the time, the cellar monster gets lit and it doesn't go out again until usually March.

Lit the cookstove this afternoon; we're roasting sunflower seeds in the oven on it right now. And all the windows are wide open, haha. When it's only 50 degrees out, it doesn't take long to spike the thermostat in the house past 80.

Locust and Maple, just getting it going. Love this stove! 13 year old Lopi Endeavor. This year I replaced the perforated tubes, and all the cracked bricks.

With the new parts in the stove, and all the work on the house this year, (there is insulation now!), I'm hoping on cutting down on the 14-16 face we burn each winter!

Still a lot of wood, but not a ridiculous amount. I burn roughly 4 cord per year, heating my 2200 square foot house. More than I'd like, but if it means I'm not burning oil, than it's worth it.

My grandmother's house was built before the civil war; when I was a kid she'd burn 4-5 tons of coal per year, plus around 12 cord of wood. Of course, she was the traditional little old lady, whose house is always 80 degrees. She had the wood furnace running full bore all the time, and the coal stove in the parlor (a mid-80's Russo w/blower) running almost constantly as well.

Old (1830's) farmhouse with minimal insulation, 6' slider, 6' French door, and a double rollout window! Redid the roof and rear wall of the house over the summer! Nice and toasty now!

I remember when we tore the interior apart on her house and reinsulated, replumbed and rewired it for her (I was about 12 at the time) we were pulling rolled up newspapers out of the walls. Apparently that was a 30's trick to insulate a drafty house.
Fiberglass works a lot better. After we redid the insulation she used about half the wood and less than a ton of coal.
