    when you start having withdrawal tremors if you dont get a buzz by sticking your head in the stove and taking a big hit of smoke like it was a giant bong

    You go to someones home for a party and instead of having polite conversation with others you spend the whole evening playing with their wood stove.

    You know you're a wood burner when your 9 yr old can rebuild a carbarator on a chain saw.

    When you pass a tree service truck on the road and see chips vs. rounds in the back and you feel what a waste that is.

    You are a serious woodburner when you have caught yourself talking to your wood.

    When you're putting in a late night at work rebuilding a crashed server and the wife calls wondering when you'll be home and all you can say is "did you build a fire?" to which she complains of no light in the woodshed.

    BTW, I got the server rebuilt by 10 PM and no, she didn't try making a fire. Got home at 11 PM and went straight out to the woodshed to split up some smaller pieces in the dark. Don't need no stinkin' light. I'm sure there must be blind wood burners too.

    When you buy one of those gag gift gallon sized coffee mugs so that you can brag that "I only got a coffee cup of creosote when I swept my chimney.".

    .... when you live in California and it is mid November and the forecast is 80 degrees, and you build a fire anyway just to see if everything you've been reading on Hearth.com really works. And then you get all excited because there is no smoke coming from the chimney.

    And then you open all the doors to cool the house down before the sun gets hot.

    It snows 2 feet and the only thing you clear is a path to the woodpile.

    Drive through the mountains to go skiing with the family, but all you can think about is the "dead standing" pines.. right over there.

    Re-stack the woodpile because your NFL team is stinking it up on the tube right now.

    Maintain the saws, maul and grenades better than the wife's car.

    Have a truck just for hauling wood.

    Put the biggest winch you can find on your truck because there is always more wood downhill.

    Run across some nice rounds by the curb and realize your are in your car and your truck is at home.

    Look at a freshly split and stacked pile and say "next year".


    Peace
