    When you look forward to the winter months when the ice cream is drastically on sale because only you are warm enough to eat it.

    -- Three containers of ice cream?

    - Yep, the sale is 3 for $5.

    -- But it's 19 degrees outside.

    - It ain't 19 degrees where I plan on eating it.

    As your wood stacks sit and age you start feeling they each have their own personality.

    When you used to cruise Craigslist for electronics stuff, car stuff, etc... Now you go to the "free" section and look for folks wanting a tree cut up and taken away!
    When you know of every potential scrounge within 10 miles of home, and wonder what would happen if you grabbed your saw and started to buck up downed trees by the side of the highway...
    Your wife even thinks you should call the state or local city office and find out about taking downed trees by the side of the highway.....
    Instead of going to thrift stores for bargain stuff, you now go to the city recycling depot every saturday and pick up as many rounds as can fit in your vehicle

    When you look at every downed tree on the side of the road as you're driving and try to estimate its value in terms of cordwood.

    While at a friend's house who is struggling to keep his fire going, your seven year old leans over and whispers, "I bet he hasn't had that cut, split and stacked long enough. Definitely has not been three years."

    You enjoy taking a cup of coffee outside in the early morning and walk around your stacks.

    When you check all pickup truck beds you walk by for woodchips and bark to see if they are putting the truck to proper use or are wasting a perfectly good truck.

    You feel an automatic kinship if you find said woodchips and bark.

    You enjoy going outside to freeze your ass off to firstly cool off from being inside and secondly so you start to long for the heat inside so you can go back in and warm up by the stove.

    When you would much rather have a woodpile in your driveway then be able to park your vehicle there.

    When "enough wood" only happens when you run out of space...and then "enough wood" is when all those friends/family you talked into letting you pile wood at their place run out of space...and then you start looking into renting a barn...

    When you buy two acres next to your property, not because you need more land, but because it is covered in Black Locust trees that you want for your stove.
