Being a somewhat long time wood burner, I feel I have contributed far more than I have taken. Terribly sorry if blocking targeted ads and internet...
I've used Firefox exclusively for the past 4 years. Have had any issues with it here at hearth.
Don't put up with it. I've been using Ixquick for a...
I'll add another con.
We had the 1400 in our old farmhouse for 7 years. It was 3 years old when we got it. I don't know if I was trying to burn it...
Those little critters have been around here since the mid 90's. By the early 00's it was nearly an epidemic. I took down a lot of hemlock back then.
About the same here; somewhere in that 40-100 range. I spend a few hours here and a few hours there. When the shed is full, I'm done. This is only...
I bought one off ebay back in '07 for $500. Has a 46" deck, a 10hp Kolher and AG tires. I prefer that over the 18hp Craftsman my wife uses. I can mow...
Went out to plow last night around 8:00. It was a balmy 14F with a moderate 5-10mph breeze when I left. Got home about 4:00 this morning. It was 1F...
Same here. We started at 1"-3" then 3"-6". Now they're saying 6"-10". After the storm passes temps drop to single digits overnight and daytime highs...
Our dinosaur of an oil furnace in the old farmhouse gave up in late Feb. of '04. We finished the winter with space heaters and a...

If you don't know where to find E-free gas try looking here:
Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, George Harrison
This song was made into a video as a tribute to Roy Orbison when he died...
Filled the garage again yesterday. When we burn through that (2-3 weeks depending on temps) we'll be at the 2 cord mark for the season.
<<====l I just built this shed last spring and it will hold 2 seasons worth of wood. The pic was taken around May of last year and it's filled...
In no particular order:
Back in the day, when I drank a lot of beer it was Stroh's Dark, a rich full flavored lager. Sadly the company was dissolved in 2000 and most of the...
No longer there.

You mean to tell me that when I was in boy scouts at 12yo; building a campfire, eating a meal cooked over an open fire, eating that food without...
I didn't see the latest one but I did catch the first one from Virginia last year. Launch was at 12:30am. There is a 1000' mountain behind us so I...
That's a good bit of advice there.
Back in the 90's before I started heating with wood, I had 3 people that would take all I could produce. I would...
Unfortunately I don't have any locust ready for this season. I'm relying on the red oak and pin oak for these unusually cold days.
-6F when I got up at 5:45. Up to -1F 2 hours later.
Inside it got down to 65 overnight but we're back up to 75 now. :cool:
Mine goes in the shed, usually the same day it's split so covered for me.
When I get the occasional big ugly, I don't fool around with it. I end up ripping the chain saw through it and make it a bit more manageable. :)
Agreed. Even small rounds will retain moisture a looooong time.
We just fired up the Baker insert yesterday so I can see our usage going up. With the mild winters we've had, we haven't used it for 2 seasons. There...
T-shirt, shorts and bare feet. :cool:
That's way too warm for me but the wife loves it. I'm cranking up the AC when it gets into the 80's. :rolleyes:
I broke down and decided to fire up the FP insert to supplement the box stove. But before I could do that I had to get up on the roof and remove the...
I had alerts when I logged on a few minutes ago.
