    I am feeling the need to get more wood, but all my sheds are still full! Really was surprised how much less wood I have used this winter, and we were toasty! Love this stove. Tim

    Don't resist the urge . . . you never know . . . the Ice Age may strike this year and you'll be humanity's savior by being the one guy with enough wood to keep Columbia River Gorge warm . . . plus, as long as you have the room, it never hurts to have more wood on hand for future years . . . although you may get a reputation in town as being "that neighbor who has all the wood piles."

    Wod is like money, you can never have too much. It's still great not to burn any more than you need to. Glad you've experienced one of the big benefits of an efficient stove.

    Tim, many of us have found we burn a lot less wood with new heaters. We cut our wood needs in half or more with the Woodstock Fireview.

    Yeah, when are you gonna join us in the 21st century? You're not even in the last decade of the last century with the old Ashley warhorse. I know you like processing wood but that's taking it too far. ;)

    I know, it's hard to part with old stoves that we have history with. I'm selling my BIL the Fv for upstairs, his Resolute III is going downstairs and the trusty old '85 Englander 24 is coming back home. Thinking maybe I'll use it as a garage stove one day. >>

    That's what I've heard from many sources too, an efficient EPA stove is about twice as efficient as an older stove.

    Yes, that's not uncommon. We burn half of what we burned in the old Majestic insert too.
