    Looks like half a cord in the stump. Nice work man. We must have a bug or something. I mean the investments in the saws, splitters, trucks, stoves, sweat,etc, Most people would just turn the heater on!

    Looks like there still could be a few cool nights, you gonna fire it up this year? 250 sounds like a deal for any EPA stove.

    $700 stove for $250? That is one hot deal! :cool:
    US Stove Co? Which one? I'm not seeing a $699 stove on TSC's site, just $599 for the medium and $899 for the large...

    $1,200 for a stove and installed chimney is a wicked good deal, not to mention that it is all brand new gear.

    Get that 4 or 5 cord of white oak split and seasoned and it would make a big dent in that $.

    Hey, I think you may be eligible for the 10% federal tax energy credit on your 2012 taxes, but you got the stove so cheap, it'll only be $25. ;lol
