    Was researching my CDW 264CCL (shocked to hear that eh? lol) and stumbled across this page..
    http://www62.homepage.villanova.edu/corie.podschelne/consolidated_dutchwest_264ccl_in.htm
    I have been on this site for 3 yrs. and didn't know this.. Interestingly the stove installed is the same one I use.. The page didn't disclose how this person acquired this stove.. Was it a freebie on Craigslist or donated by other means?? I tip my hat to Craig for his share of the stove installation! I would like to know if the person that got this stove is a forum member and if so do they still use this stove and how it worked out for them.. Quite frankly I was surprised that it was a CDW fa264ccl stove as I know Craig is not fond of these stoves.. How long ago did this event take place? Nice to see people helping other people with wood burning stoves! WTG Craig and Hearth.com!

    Just found this one too: http://www62.homepage.villanova.edu/corie.podschelne/Vermont Castings Vigilant.htm .. A couple Hearth.com members were involved including Todd who donated the stove.. WTG Hearth.com!

    Thanx Bart that was before I found Hearth.com.. I'm sure many do not know about these installs and it's good this info resurfaced..

    There is some neat history here...
    http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/forums/viewthread/7156/

    In short, Corie and Hogwilz got together and did some installs for needy folks.

    Corie is a stove lover who was in school for engineering - wanted to become a STOVE designer. But he had no way to break into the business!

    So, in his last year in college, we raised money on Hearth.com....I matched it....and we sent him to RENO to the trade show, where he was able to really get a feel for the industry and put out job offers......

    He then returned and got a JOB with Englander.......worked there a couple years, and now works at Harman!

    To quote Corie:
    "All of you that gave money so that a poor college kid with a poor family could travel to another state and live three days in a dream. I don’t mean to dramatize the trip, but really, I have never had three better days in my entire life. Between the stoves, the people, the burning displays, talking with the big wigs of the companies, getting more donor stoves and more donor pipe, the parties, the Vesta Awards, spending time with Craig, Thomas, Trevor, Ryan, Richard, Rod and anyone else who I’m forgetting, these were the three most memorable days of my life.

    So, in closing, I just want to extend one more big thank to you everyone. Thanks for donated money so I could go. Thanks for listening to me. Thanks for helping with resumes and business cards. Thanks for sending funds and materials that make the donor program possible.

    HUGE special thanks to Craig for setting everything up for me, show me around, telling some great stories, and putting me in touch with almost every important person I know in the industry.

    Another HUGE special thanks to Thomas (Super Cedar) for taking me out to dinner mlutiple times, shuttling me around, and putting up with me over an extended period of time. "

    Those interested in some of that history can look up Cories old posts, etc.....

    I'm kinda choked up reading it......
