    In that post he stated that I was about to pass him in post count. Yes, that happened but today when I got online I realized that yet today I will pass the 20,000 mark! Never thought that would happen but strange things do happen every now and then.

    It is my wish that all would know that the reason for me being on this forum is to help others if at all possible. Of course every now and then some funnies pop up and guys teasing, etc, but it is all in fun. Most of my time on this forum has been very good and yes, I've had a few rough spots too but not so rough at to throw me out of the tracks just yet. But perhaps it is time for me to slow down a bit so come on guys and gals, out-post me!

    And thanks to all of you.

    Wow, it's gonna happen real soon. Don't force it.

    I predict I will never make it to 20,000, which is probably a good thing.

    I've sure learned a lot from you, Dennis. Not all of it's about wood or burning. You are a good guy who lives right and you do so in a way that compells others to follow suit.

    Many Thanks Dennis...... Your positive posts on getting ahead has been my driving force. From this year on. I only need to cut what I burn in one year.

    Just imagine if you went Mobile, like Scotty O. and myself ;) If you could post from Anywhere? You would be at the 200,000 mark :) Keep it up Dennis...... Keep the Newb's on there A game and getting ahead.

    Keep on posting Sav, many members have built up the wood inventories because of you, still plenty of new members that need that info. Six plus years ahead because of you, at times I wondered why I was busting it but when I look out at the stacks I know why.

    Dennis, if I had 20,000 pieces of wood, how many cords would that be? I too have learned from your wisdom.

    Need more information! What length. What size, etc. ;lol



    Hey guys, I really don't need a new phone (poor covereage here anyway) because I'm usually around here most of the time. However, I do try to stick to once per day getting on the forum. Trouble is, sometimes it takes hours to get off the forum!

    I wonder how many people see a milk crate and think of you? Thanks for all of the great posts and trying to set us straight when we get off course.

    Thanks Jharkin. I think my wife is wondering if I'll ever finish tonight. Usually the forum is not as busy on the weekends but today surely is.
