    67% for me. Nat Geo told me to turn my oil furnace back on and step away slowly from the wood burning appliances.

    meh....67%.......but, have to say, alot of the questions were errata (and simple trivia only) thats easy to look up.......might get them all if you had the time (to cheat).

    lolz, really?

    "One pound (0.45 kilogram) of oven-dried hardwood has an available heat value of about 8,600 BTU, while wood pellets are next at about 7,750 BTU, followed by air-dried hardwood."

    Which pellets are those? NEWPs? :eek: Some dubious fact checking there, I'd say...

    Last time this quiz showed up I got 10/12. This time I got them all. Burning wood all winter does make you smarter. I knew it:)

    7/12.
    How did I not know NE had the most wood burners? Guess I watch too many Alaska shows.
    Hey, does that mean New England is more primative than Alaska?
    Well, we do have mountain lions again.

    I stopped taking the test after getting that one "wrong" when I saw their incorrect data.

    well, this quiz was likely put together by some journalist who had some extra time, googling away on the internet-thing. From Florida. With electric heat.

    I'm selling a cheat sheet with the right answers. So PM me if you want to buy one. I will take bags of pellets in trade. Sets and Okies only.
