    My wife had a question of me that I couldn't answer so I'm posting it here?

    What do WE call ourselves? I tried to answer her but couldn't come up with a good reply. I speaking of the "average" user here. I didn't think lumberjack nearly applied as it's not my full time profession. Woodsman was a possibility, but that to me means I have an in depth knowledge of the woods and can live off it. Stover and burner sounded too odd and menacing respectively. So what is it guys? If there is a name for us, what is it? And if there isn't what should it be?

    LOL. I've used the "I've got wood" comment and reference to "my poker" so many times she just ignores me. Odd huh?

    If you also garden and preserve, you're pretty near agrarian. More specifically feuermeister, pyrophiliac, redneck, independent

    I don't think I need a name, just a person/family who stays warm by burning wood.

    This is the second oldest profession, started in caves , progressed to man caves,men providing their families with heat,meat and wheat. I guess we are pyrostitutes.
