If you've ever left a log in the toilet.

I bet that would run a heck of a lot better with a muffler on it.
Lovely "air start" too...
When you get poison ivy in December. (Speaking from experience).
Never noticed that the muffler was removed....
Your boss knows that if he calls you on your day off, he will have to talk over the chainsaw idle. Especially now that it is 50 here in December!
Or during hurricane sandy, going on 7 days without any utilities, your out of town family wants to send you toothpaste and other toiletries but instead, you ask them to send 16" stihl chainsaw chains!
When you know more about your neighbors wood stove than he does.
Carrying around a sooteater in the back of your truck for friends and family to use if need be.
When your significant other doesn't mind an engine hoist in the living room to set the stove on the hearth!!
Something like this:
And here I thought my pallet jack in the family room with a stove on it was something.
when your stacked wood piles are more organized than your sock and underwear draws.
No one sees that underwear drawer, my wood stacks are for all to see and envy!
You know you are a real woodburner if... You use a piece of wood at somepoint during your woodburning installation because it was "the right tool for the job" at the time...
Think about it for a minute and you will know where to use it. And it isn't as a shim.
when you feel compelled to go out to check on your stack every 10 minutes after a reload to see how quickly the smoke dissappears and the efficient burn starts......
Yes, I do that quite often.......
It is okay brother you do not have to feel like you are alone.
When your wife shakes her head ruefully as you drive away from the house and she sees the smoke coming from everybody else's chimneys. (Happened again yesterday.)
But I'll add, "... and after said helper cuts off his finger before lunch, you spend four hours in the ER planning how you're going to split the last three cords when you get home that evening."
When you urge your best friend to make the leap into home ownership in hopes of convincing him to install a wood stove so you have another wood cutter in your crew.
My bathroom reading material is hearth.com! (Sorry, guys and gals...)
Gives new meaning to "splitting logs."
You know you are a real woodburner if you take a pic of the clouds because they look like a real good fire..........
When the world ends on Dec 21st you hope you wood stacks are saved. So, if someone survives to find your stacks, your legacy would live on.
remind me to NEVER touch your smartphone.......
If you leave ten splits of cedar for kindling, one stabilized Jonsered,a bucksaw,a Maul head, wedge and axe head,a well protected box of matches, and directions to the scrounge you found on Dec. 20 in a time capsule. Just in case someone makes it and is chilly.
