    I'm at around 160 bags, got to pick up a ton tomorrow, and I hope that gets me through the spring.

    About 85 bags total?!?!? Messed up my count when I pulled my Hamstring (about a month ago).

    My Son has been carrying pellets up. There is a chart where I mark what bag I took and tally the totals..... (So plus or minus 5 bags) :(

    Last year I burned 105 bags (hair over 2 ton). Definitely colder this year :)

    But I have burned about 1.5 cord of wood... Thought I burned less wood, but went and counted missing racks behind the garage :( Moving wood contributed to the Hamstring.

    I'm at about 92 so far. All most as much as I used all last season(120), But last season was a fluke. I'm on par to use the normal 170+ which is about the norm.

    Almost time to start hunting for more. Trying to keep at least 25 bags of the Cubex and all of the Hamers for next season. I'll ride the rest of this season on shoulder stuff.

    48 January bags, 126 total this season, dropped 1/8th on oil gauge during January (I take pics of gauge every month)


    I was at a biz convention from Sunday morning to Wednesday night, my wife torched 8 bags of cubex. Whatever, I told her to run the oil if she didn't feel like fng with pellets, she chose right!

    (I left a love not in oil thermostat door, she never found it!)

    (I brought the cubex into the holding closet, just for low ash) I also must admit she kept stove clean as hell!! Sent me a pic of nice spikey flames and clean glass, just to bust my balls.
