Hello to the people from Rome, And Clinton Ny. I am a new member at this site nut you have made me very happy. I lived in West Branch along route 26 for close to 11 years.I loved it their. I then moved to Taberg as I purchased a mobile home. Liesure village was the park that I rested in. I purchased a VC Interpid and heated the home for about 6 years with this stove as a primary heat source.I had purchased a 028 from a dealer in West Lyden.I stihl have the saw with me now here in Coleman Texas. I have spent many days at the Clinton arena.I am well familiar with the surroundings. Same as to the Kennedy Arena in Rome.The VC would heat 90% of the home. I had the people from the stove place on Broad street professionally install it. I never had a problem with this stove. I cut and split all of my own wood, mostly from the state land and took the tops left by the loggers.The Vc had a small firebox and the furnace would kick in when the temperature went down. This worked well as I did not want the pipes to freeze. I miss the wonderful people from the Rom area. I had to move to a warmer climate as I have had several spinal surgeries at St. Elizabeths.My wood splitting days are now behind me as of the warmer climate here. I missed the woodsmans field days for the first time this year. I used to drive a logging truck for 3B Timber out of Boonville. The Burgoise family was the owner.I hope to be in communication with the rest of the wonderful people from Rome and Clinton NY.
