    lol, thanks for the concern but I think we're good to go there. Also, I plan on not only getting a better guitar later when we can afford it, but also a motorcycle. How many chick magnets do I really need? I've not ever really had a problem with the ladies anyway.

    So far we are saving big money.

    We got an Amesti N380 for $399 (17VL would have been $550 and a Morso 1440 would have been $1,200).

    Then yesterday I was at Home Depot and noticed they had the Simpson Duravent 6" Insulated Chimney 36" pieces marked down from $82 to $43 but it was all gone. I asked a guy and they are having 5 pieces transferred - still at the clearance price! I had planned on paying $100 a section as that's what it was elsewhere earlier in the season. Big savings there.


    Now for a few questions. Can you use Duravent pipe with a Selkirk cap? I like the Selkirk cap a lot better. What about other parts? Do you have to use all of one brand or are all 6" insulated pipe pretty well the same?
