    When a friend mentions to your significant other he has been using his fireplace as supplimental heat and you immediately jump on craigslist looking for a good used insert and a liner for him, even though he didn't say he wanted one...

    I think I've got some wannabe buddies. I do also have the ones that think I'm nuts.

    When you go out in the middle of a hurricane to grab that big red oak before someone else does.

    When you are driving around looking for a parking spot near the hospital because you need an emergency appendectomy and you consider stopping and picking up those perfectly sized silver maple rounds.(That was me last weekend.)

    Totally agree, will add that you look close to see what kind of rounds they are.

    When you see the big wood haulers drive by and think to yourself, "Self, he should go the other way.....toward MY house with that load".
    Or, when you see one of those loads, you can tell what kind of wood it is. Then, you either dismiss it as not as good as the oak you just got, or it actually IS oak and want it.

    ...When you join Hearth.com just to reply to this thread (to say thanks for all the info I've gotten from here while a lurker)

    ...When it takes 3 tractors, 2 trucks, multiple trailers, and uncountable saws, plus a splitter with a 7" ram, just to have free heat

    ...When friends dump wood they find at your place, knowing you'll split and stack it, and give it back later as dry campfire wood.

    ...When you wonder if beer is deductible on your taxes as "heating expense".

    Great site guys, I'll stop by from time to time and say Hi!

    No hard feelings 'cause he can't feel anything any more.
    It's the twitching that's gettin' to him.
