    Burning wood for newbies??

    I cannot get my mind wrapped around all the issues with lighting a damn fire. I have NEVER, again, NEVER had an issue whether starting up or in the AM on waking up to either start or to continue a fire. It's almost like when the Arapaho discovered flint.

    What's your favorite BEER?

    Would you buy a Harman at this point?

    Why do you burn?

    We moved in over 40 years ago. Small ranch with piss ant electric heaters at the far end(bedrooms) and an oil floor heater at the other end. The damn floor heater was on and off every 10 minutes and unless you stood over it you froze. Then I met old Charlie Wilson in PA and bought a Morso 2bo...
