    When people in the neighborhood stop to take photographs of your wood piles.

    When the neighbors start inviting you to their house because your house "is like a sauna"

    When the people at the Stihl dealership place the right size chain for your saw on the counter without you even asking.

    When "getting wood" has more than 1 meaning.

    When you get together with fellow burners and talk about each others wood.

    I'm about ready to make "the call" to the ------s for a fill up. But, since I didn't pay for the priviledge of the non-plan plan, I'm sure their going to want to charge me some crazy fee for the priviledge of paying them for propane. If I can just convince them to give me one more fill up, I should be good for three years or so.

    ...When you call the propane company a bunch of _______s.

    ...When you're able to consider how many years a tank of propane will last.

    ...When you spill a fine porter on the stove and you're more upset than your wife (and not just about the wasted porter).

    ...When you've memorized the firewood species/BTU charts and when offered a possible scrounge, your first question is "What type of wood is it?".

    You know you're a real wood burner if you dare to burn pine even though EVERYBODY knows it causes chimney fires.
