    I came here for some help shopping for stove, which I received in spades. Never imagined I'd still be here passing the hot potato.
    Thanks for two years of a warm house. I likely would have given up after trying to burn green oak.
    I never would have bought the 30, the saw, or tried to clean my own chimney. I'll never forget the first time I climbed that roof, when everyone was waiting "back at the ranch" to make sure I hadn't falled off!
    Words cannot express how grateful I am for the advice, companionship, and the almost daily belly laughs.

    I could not agree with you more BG....they keep us in line.... :lol:

    Kat, you should pat yourself on the back....I am sure your woodburning "adventure" has been a long journey, but probably one of the easiest of all you have encountered.

    I too have to extend my thanks to all the burners here for the help and support this last year. It has been a "bumpy ride" but I could not have done it without all of you. I became a member here a year ago after looming for a while but after reading many of Kat and Dix's posts, I decided to take the plunge and join.

    I love all you guys and gals....Thankx :)

    Whew. Thought I was getting all sappy and stuff.

    That's how it always starts. Just ask a simple question about an old stove and next thing ya know,
    you're feeling indebted for more than you could have imagined. At least that's what this forums done
    for me, but then, I get a little dramatic at times. :lol:

    Always glad to read K's post's. I hope I have helped out. You can be pretty intimidating with the amount of intelligence you have, K! (read sometimes you make me feel dumb)!

    I, also, would like to thank the forum members for all the responses to my questions. Sure am glad I found this site. I've said it before and I'll say it again-it's the only forum I participate in. When I signed on in 2010, I thought it would be just a temporary thing...

    http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-laughing004.gif Dude, right now I am teaching sixth grade, which means I am neither intelligent nor intimidating.

    Thanks for the compliment though!

    I've been super busy, as I started grad school, so I haven't been around as much. I've still been actively working with the wood though. Making trips to the sawmill (thanks Lee!) Trying out my new chain saw in my stylish chaps (Thanks BB!) and I still have a bit of wood from the Captain http://www.hearth.com/econtent/index.php/forums/fort/12148/ who practically got me through last winter with seasoned wood.

    Yesterday I had to pull my nose out of the books to go pickup a couple of apple wood from my farmer friend :)

    Thanks y'all!

    Happy burning K! I let mine pass without saying anything. I too joined in January of 2010. I could not imagine burning wood or pellets without the help of the people in this forum. Thank you all and congrats Kathleen!
