    OK. Time for my annual thread. I will start it off with the same one I always do.

    "You know you are a real wood burner if at a wine tasting you refer to the Cabernet as 'Oakie with just a hint of creosote.'"

    Have fun gang.

    You check on the stove(s) and add a couple of splits in the morning before you pee.

    Imagine trying to pack some nice, seasoned wood you found in your suitcase to try to get it home on the airplane.
