    I'm not sure whats going on with me lately, but i cant get my mind off of wood burning. All i want to do is fire up the wood stove. I keep looking for smaller stoves to put in other parts of the house. which is really crazy because my stove heated my house perfectly last winter. My wife thinks im nuts and cant understand why on earth i cant wait intill fall. I guess I will have a couple fires in the fire pit to hold me over. Its going to be a long summer!

    I was thinking of starting a group called WA. That's WoodBurner's Anonymous and would help those of us suffering with this problem.

    Every time I hear a chainsaw in my neigborhood I am like a beaver who hears running water and has to chomp some wood. You learn to live with it, and so does the rest

    I am laughing my butt off.

    Hi I'm mike and I'm addicted to wood!

    I guess oak is better then coke!

    This was my first season heating with wood. All I do is think and dream about cutting splitting and burning. When I get home I always split at least 1 log. I write down the phone # of every tree service company I see. I've even pulled a logging truck over this winter and paid him a $100 bucks to come to my house. I'm almost 2 years ahead on splitting with probably enough for the third year all ready bucked and I'm considering on getting more.

    Multiple stoves is the quickest remedy for burning addiction.

    tfdchief did me in. Every since he posted that pic I have had a fire in the old stove out back every night. Including tonight. I just came in for a beer. If the fire guys drop by I will just say "Everybody else is burning in a $79 sheet metal fire pit from Lowe's. I am burning in a six hundred and fifty pound 1/4" and 3/8" plate fire pit that used to heat this house. Want a beer?"

    Just a Jotul F3 and a Jotul F100 that really need to go. Not enough firepower for that space. The other one is the 25-PDVC and I have a bunch of pellets to burn off before I do something with it.

    I'm good . . . then again our heating season starts in September typically and runs until May or so . . . it's kind of nice to get a bit of a break . . . and in the mean time there's always camping and the fire pit when I have the need to burn something up.

    I get a wistful thought about the comfort of a good fire, then I recall the bone aching fun of splitting and stacking the wood.<>

    Multiple StOves Gamma, not O's. :eek: (If you hit the Like button now, we'll understand)
    Keeping two or three (stoves) going at once cures a guy real fast.

    Now that I went to the huge firebox found in the new kitchen stoves, I light a small fire to cook every morning and let it die by 9 or 10. I'm looking forward to harvest time canning the garden stuff, and boiling down pumpkin. Lots of reasons to burn here. A good pumpkin crop with 100 pumpkins borders commercial canning and freezing pumpkin goop. With the summer grate out, the oven comes up to 300 without even circulating the exhaust around it. So we're more inclined to throw something in just cuz it's hot. Raising the fire on the summer grate only heats the stove top. Tiny splits use next to nothing. Perfect ! I'm thinking an operable roof window to be able to open over the stove for light and exhaust the unwanted heat during summer.
