    I'm a new member here, thought this would be a good way to introduce myself, get to know others...

    Post a couple of pics of 'your neck of the woods', and maybe a little bio...


    I live in Central Utah. Been burning wood all my life. Been working on a log home for the past 3 years or so. Just purchased a 28-3500 from Englander. I'll have to do an 'install' thread soon. But since this is the Picture Perfect section of the forum... on with the pics!


    This is where I go get wood. Lots of beetle kill. Mostly Englemann Spruce. I also cut a fair amount of Juniper (which I prefer)

    This is what my driveway looks like in the winter.

    This is close to where I 'work'

    And my giant wood pile, that I currently live in...

    Welcome aboard. I went skiing in Utah before I was married. I wish I could get out there in the fall. It looks beautiful I loved it when I was there.

    No, he's right! Utah is a horrible, horrible place to live. No one should even consider it! ;-)


    Nice pics, Xena and Skin!



    Here's another from about 5 miles away from where I grew up (SW. Utah)

    I agree, except Moss Point, Mississippi. No offense to anyone from there.

    September and October are two of the finest months of the year in my area. :)

    My wife agrees with you . . . Fall is her favorite time of the year . . . no bugs, warm days, cool nights, good weather.

    Me . . . I like all the seasons . . . well except for Black Fly Season . . . heck I even like Tourist Season and Mud Season . . . but I can't stand Black Fly Season.

    Yep, black fies, and no-see-um's, and skeeter season, too. Although, skeeters were barely noticed this year.
    Great pics Bobbin. Bev and I have been noticing more color change the last several days, mostly the Maples. We both love the cooler days and evenings.
    I don't have any pics from this year yet, guess I should get on that. :red:

    Nice pics all.



    Here's a sunset pic from the 'Skyline Drive' about 20 minutes from my house. Elevation: 9000'. This is the plateau where I cut wood.
