    When you debate on parking the fishing boat outside( the large add-on to the garage) to make room for several more cords to stock-pile up for the next few years.
    When you have access to free wood and can't get enough and can't say no.
    When you druel over trees laying in the woods you just can't get(big fat oak ones) down a steep ravene you dream of winching out some-how.
    Then you know you are HOOKED sitting on you're ATV in the woods lusting over all that standing dead timber enough to make you cry...

    You know you are a woodneck when you will get out of bed at 2am to reload, but stay in when your wife "hears a noise".

    Or when you have been on hearth.com for going on 3 years and you still get a good feeling answering the question "why is my glass getting black"......... for the 50th time.

    when you're on vacation in Bermuda in December and you:

    1) keep checking hearth.com from the hotel's business center;
    2) keep checking the local Wisconsin weather and cuss when you see how cold it is,
    and the furnace is running to keep the pipes from freezing;
    3) go out to eat a a Bermuda restaurant and enjoy a Cuban cigar in front of the chimenea
    in the parking lot while daydreaming about your real wood stove back home; and
    4) hunt down the owner to ask what kind of wood he's burning in the chimenea.

    Never got to the Swizzle Inn; this was Tom Moore's Tavern.

    I got back on Sunday, but I had multiple Dark and Stormy's last week. I'll be looking for decent ginger beer after
    bringing some Gosling's Black Seal home in the suitcase. It was a beautiful island, but I'd go broke if I stayed too long.

    When you split so much wood you can barely get to the front door of your house. Then you look at the pile and think is this enough. Only to realize you just want to take the super split log splitter out one more time just to play....becasue you are addicted to wood.

    ......Your 4 year old daughter, tongue almost touching her nose, barely manages to drag the splitting maul to your feet...and then, arms crossed and chin to chest, looks up at you with all the conviction she can muster, and offers to help split that stubborn piece of cured Ash you've just given up on.

    Hosting a party for your kid's graduation you point at your wood pile and boast "There's my pride and joy".

    When you get excited reading about the potential for "downed branches and trees" in the details of the "Ice Storm Warning" in tonights weather forecast... and smile thinking about how the power failures won't bother you nearly as much this year as last year :)

    I'm up for that ! I might need some time to figure out how to upload video from my cell phone & post it to the site. What date are you ladies shooting for - for posting the "WOMAN WOOD SPLITTING" videos ? I say "Woman" instead of wives because not all of us are wives. But I certainly would warm up my swinger & shoulders for that ! I'd like to see some of these guys hand splitting in freezing temps, at nite, not missing or needed to take more than one hit. You get points for form, points for tenacity, and points for not getting wife or kids to help !

    you picket the "lumberjack " competitions and chastize the "hotsaw" competitors for cutting the logs so close to the end instead of at regular 18" intervals as real woodcutters should
