    you follow the state trucks around and ask them to stack the lengths they cut along the road for easy loading

    Very funny thread. I seem to have alot in common with everybody. I look at my chimney smoke 4 times a day. My woodpile 10 times a day. And I dont like warm winter days anymore. I also notice every dead and downed tree everywhere I drive and think how good it would look on my woodpile.

    You know you are a woodburner when you rear-end the car in front of you
    because your eyes were on a couple logs on the side of the road that needs to be scounged.

    You know you are a woodneck when 90% of your conversations with the wife start with "well, on this website i go to about wood burning, i read..."

    When you are so in tune with the heating of you're house, that the sound of the furnace kicking on throws you into a panic.

    And if the furnace kicks on in the midle-of-the-nite it wakes you up from a dead sleep thinking what's wrong.

    And you start shaking violently when you hear it with symptoms not unlike those from the delirium tremors.

    Hey awoodman, I would love to see photos and hear about the wood boat you built and painted. Here is one I built and painted last year for my kids. Maybe should take it offline since it is not hearth related.

    Not quite ! . . . . but I've marked the side of the shed as to the level of my woodpile and kept a close eye on the footprints on the back end of my property while watching when a certain neighbor runs out. I wish I had 10 acres at least and a few more dogs. I usually find neighbors throwing stumps illegally onto my property. Some are not true woodburners. I walk right up to their front doors & set em straight: ASK ME FIRST ! I inform them of I'll take their unwanted wood under certain conditions. But they may not just dump possibly rotted wood on my property. They all want nice dry ready-to-go, but don't want the work of anything else they have for WHATEVER reasons! Yeah, . . . I'm very protective of my woodpile !

    When your kids race to stand in front of the stove the moment they return home!

    When... your winter life at home, almost revolves around the wood stove!

    Does it get any better?

    Yes, we will soon be looking forward to spring!
