My wife and I are both already talked into it. We just have to come up with the money.

If you sell that Fireview at the right time you could shorten the money span issue.. Buying a Woodstock is almost a cult thing like Harley Davidson lol.. Personally I think it's worth the trip! My wife never saw the stoves in person so she can't relate as well as we can..
Thank God for that
Pleasure meeting you Gamma and your husband I will keep everyone updated on the stove once I get it installed, it's going to be some job getting that beast up on my hearth... Woodstocks customer service in by far the best in it's class they spend so much time with you and answer every question you have and if they don't know a answer they are honest and tell you they are not sure or will get back to you when they know the answer very honest people.
Sorry to have missed you all
I was driving from Me to Vt
With my 17 y.o. To look at colleges
But stopped on Sunday
Closed Sunday jokes on me!
Ah well maybe next year
Jags, sadly Jake and I did not have enough time so I could teach him the proper method of splitting wood. I think I explained it well to his partner though and he agreed. You see, God made trees to stand vertically and any that are grown horizontally are freaks of Nature. Need I continue this or do you get the gist of where it was going from there?
Ciccio and his lovely wife were great at Woodstock and it was our pleasure to meet with them. He will be getting his stove before we will too.
btw, the ash pan they had at the factory last weekend is NOT the final product but was put together quickly just to show about what it will be like. Actually there were a few other things that were not finished too, such as the numbers on the draft control which will be added and, of course, they are still working on the thermostatic control and a few other upgrades. One thing I really pushed Tom on is the firebox door handles. It will really be a big upgrade if they finally get a handle which can be turned or pulled without using a tool or gloves. I do believe that is in the works along with many other things.
Perhaps a pair of skis would do?
Exactly, at our age ending up horizontal is not something we want to think about. It is the end for a tree and...
How do you stack that vertically split wood? Also interested in your stove loading, lol. I hope you put that Jake guy in his place, though.
Danno, Jake is a really nice guy like most of the rest of us are too. He even brought some really neat stuff with him. And the wood is stacked horizontally because it is dead.
Someday I hope to meet you all, too. Jake especially. I really wanna see for myself if he is as wordy as he is on the forum :D
Butch, it was a pleasure meeting and talking to you.
Dennis it was a pleasure meeting you and your wife I had a great time talking to you....
1) I was good and didn't really get into it much with Dennis . . . actually we hugged, cried, hugged again and he agreed that splitting wood horizontally is the best way to split wood . . . it could have been the beer talking though.
2) 10-15 feet . . . depending on the wind conditions.
And several days later . . . still no avatar . . . good to meet you ISkiatomic.
I think it was great . . . then again I brought down a 12-pack . . . although my wife cautioned me to just pour a bit into cups since Moxie isn't for everyone . . . apparently some folks think it tastes horrible . . . although Craig was trying to be diplomatic when I asked what he thought about it.
Moxie is good stuff . . . glad to hear you found a source.
I told my buddy Aaron about Voxie/Modka . . . of course he likes to mix it with Rum . . . Rumie? Moxum?
It was a good time . . . but apparently I left way too soon.
Dennis actually put down a deposit . . . I know he was ruminating on the idea . . . I know I was seriously tempted to kick my beloved Oslo to the curb, but if I did that I would be following it soon thereafter as I know my wife would think I had gone over the edge . . . and yes . . . it really is that good looking a stove.
What? No mention of the Maine Prize Package you won Butch? And here I thought you were really touched by winning this fantastic prize package?
Then again, no one even mentioned the whoopie pies and needhams (candy made out of mashed potato) I brought down from Maine . . .
And again . . . I clearly left way too early . . . next year I'll have to plan out things better.
Good eye Jags . . . that would be your hat I promised you . . . the hat will be in the mail soon.
Cool beans. Thanks a bunch.
Whoa . . . whoa . . . whoa . . . a couple errors here.
Error 1 -- As I recalled it you agreed with me that splitting horizontally is the best way to split . . . but it could have been the beer talking.
Error 2 -- Not that there is anything wrong with it . . . but my "partner" is a good friend who I lured down to the open house by telling him about the free beer and pig roast . . . although he told me getting the free T-shirt and learning about the new stove technology was interesting for him as well. My wife meanwhile was back in Maine looking for our missing cat.
Again . . . it has to be the lingering effects of the beer.
