    Wish I could have a fire pit. My town is fanatical about outdoor fires and will throw a fine at you in a heartbeat if you don't have a permit to burn.

    The camping this weekend will give me my fire fix for now. Processed up some pallets just so the park service doesn't give me flak about transporting firewood even though I'm not even leaving the county. This is almost like a shoulder to the shoulder season. The upstairs is staying warm, but the basement living room where the stove is steadily losing its heat and may force me to start a fire in about a week or so just keep it tolerable down there. I'm not 3 years ahead so I have to keep reminding myself that the longer I can wait the more wood I'll have for when I really need it.

    As long you used the Matrix to justify it; I think I'm good!

    After burning my fingers many times with matches and lighters... A torch is the ONLY way to go.

    Remember, you vote with your feet. You can move.

    Some towns around here have banned yard waste burning, but still allow camp fires. People living in those towns just set up some lawn chairs around their fire pit, whenever they have yard waste to burn.

    I couldn't see it until I finally started getting my wood dry enough. >>

    I still don't have everyone far enough ahead that I supply, so the longer it's warm, the better. But I am interested to see how the Keystone does in the dead winter, not just the spring and fall. :)

    Get a fake beard, a pointy hat and a magic staff. When the cops show up tell them its part of your religion and you're simply exercising your constitutional rights.

    Rainy damp 59 this evening. My old bones have a strong dislike to damp fall weather. Started up the wood stove with some small black birch and a chunk of pine. It's a nice 74 in the house just perfect for shorts and a tee, watching college football and sipping a cold entertaining beverage. Won't light up the boiler till early November.
