    I've lived here in the Arctic for 51 years now. In my younger years, I made many snowmobiling trips in minus 80 or more chill factor conditions. Protective equipment wasn't what it is now. I don't have scars, but I do have several sensitive places on my face and fingers.

    How I feel about life on this planet. Think I am an alien who was switched at birth.

    My earliest memories are of wondering how on earth, earthlings live the way they do. I still just scratch my head and wonder a lot.

    I mean doesn't anyone else wonder why humans act the way we do????

    We are all on a finite ball of rock spinning through vast quantities space at incredible speeds and most of us aren't even dizzy and, to date, there have been no reports that I have been able to find anywhere of anyone falling off into all that space - unless aided by a rocket ship. What a record.

    And that is just one of the wonders of this place and most people don't even seem to notice it....


    So, I continue to be Perplexed and marvel at my foot prints in the snow...I am still held on to and get to be here another day.

    Cearbhaill is the Gaelic form of my last name, Carroll.
    As we have an old Celtic breed of dog we use it as a kennel name, although we neither breed nor sell.

    It is properly pronounced nearly the same as Carroll, but we say it Keerb-hail anyway.

    Chip is my first name (nickname, actually) and Tam is a shortened version of my last name. Not very original or exciting, I'll admit, but it works for several forums I participate on.

    Greetings: I am a new member here, I installed stove in November and discovered this site before Christmas. I have been surfing the site and will be posting as time goes by. While at my first job out of high school in 1969, I used to wear a nylon windbreaker that was given to me by the fellow I bought my tires from. Back in those days, i didn't have much coin, and he used to extend me credit, for which I will always be grateful. I had a bright red jacket from the FIRESTONE company on it, white stripes and all. I have heated my workshop for years with wood, and now that we own our first real household stove, it sounded like a good moniker. I also had a propensity in my younger days for often suffering from mishaps with firepits, barbecues, propane torches, and fireplaces.

    I was sipping a glass of Woodford Reserve at the time and it seemed appropriate.

    I had just made 3 trips to get some pine that had been cut and was free. Everyone here will not burn pine, they think it causes creosote and hardwoods is easy to get, but not as easy as pine. I do burn both. The day I signed up, at lunch my friend that also has a wood-stove said that he would not ever burn pine and such. So when I signed up and was trying to come up with a name, Pinewoodburner is what I came up with.

    When I was a kid, my family had a ferret named Sylvester, but quickly shortened the name to Sly. It was much more applicable anyway.

    Mike was taken, Mike1 seemed kinda arrogant. Since I am so smart that I can easily count to 4, I decided to show off - Mike1234 :)

    I am an airplane nut, even ended up being an airplane mechanic cause I get to work where the airplanes are. One book I realy like is feet wet reflections of a carrier pilot. "Feet wet" was the call naval pilots gave when exiting the land on the way back to the ship, meaning they would get thier feet wet if they punched out of thier jet.
    My hobby and other passion is rowing traditional wooden boats, or any other type that you can row, I have built a few boats also, and love to spend time rowing with my family (they just ride). My avitar is my dream boat, but not having piles of money to put into my hobby, I actualy row a 17' coleman canoe modified with out riggers (gate hinges) and oar locks, it fits my wife and three kids just fine, and requires no maintenance.
    rowerwet is a blending of rower, which is almost always already taken, and feet wet. It is even my email.
