    It's funny someone said that. Nevermind Sunday drives, I do it all the time while driving. If I see a downed tree, limb, a pile of rounds, stacked wood etc I am looking. If my wife sees what I'm about to see before I do she'll say "oh no"...

    When you hope the global warming folks have it wrong and that the global cooling folks have it right so you can keep on burning!

    When you have a perpetual scar on your left forearm from touching the stove on reloads.

    When you can maintain your home plus/minus 1 degree from your ideal temp.

    When you spot a single wood split on the side of the road that fell out of someone else's truck and stop to collect it so it doesn't go to waste.

    Ive debated passing out flyers, stuffing them in woodburners mail boxes. Then i think it may get used as a firestarter and i stop there. Have considered knocking on ones door to ask them about that stellar woodshed they have.

    I've done that. The wife, "What in world are you doing?" Me, "I'm afraid some car will hit that and cause an accident."
    Wife - calls sister on the phone..."

    Yup, I get that as well.

    "So, you're the guy with those huge piles of wood...... right in the middle of the lawn?"

    "Guilty as charged."

    Funny thing is I never have that much wood on hand compared to a lot of folks here, maybe 6 cord is the most I ever had at once.

    You drive 5 hours to hang out in a factory parking lot with a bunch of people that you met on the internet to drink beer and talk about wood and stoves...and then talk a few more hours over more drinks and dinner.

    when you go to sleep at night, you put a note under your pillow, Asking the wood fairy's to bring some primo wood in rounds. So you can split it without sweating to death.

    You call the power company & report some trees that need cut because they might fall this winter so you can get some easy fire wood.
    They come & fall the trees. They are within in a few hundred yards of you wood shed & you miss out on getting the wood because you went moose hunting.
    The stumps & sawdust trails where the rounds were cut are visible every day.
    Now you feel depressed & even got a moose.
    (I can't wait for the snow to cover the evidence. 6 birch trees & 3 spruce.)
