It’s most certainly foolish for me but I still seem to do it.is it just me or do only the foolish heat with wood when there are other alternatives to keeping warm? simple question I "WOOD" guess! lol
Nice to have NG, I won't support the propane company.It’s most certainly foolish for me but I still seem to do it.
I can work a couple Saturdays at my job and pay my Ng. bill for the whole heating season but feeding the wood furnace is still something I enjoy.
I enjoy spending money on saws, fuel, chains, sharpening equipment so that I can save a couple bucks on heating lol.
That's me. I "wood" all year. Winter is for split/pile (just came in from 1.5 hour of manual splitting. I was getting through the 'to be split' piles too fast. 'wooding' is what keeps me able to do physical things at 84. I'd probably be long dead if I hadn't kept cutting, splitting, piling long past needing any wood. Got more in the pasture now than I'll ever burn.In reality I could sell the wood that I burn instead of burning it myself, buy propane, and break even.
Or I could work extra and probably be better off.
I think some guys like us just like to be busy and putter with wood all winter (shrug).
The fellow who lived down the road from my old house was probably crazy. He had a barrel stove in the middle of the house. He’d cut trees small enough to drag and stick the butt end into the stove. If the tree was too long, he’d just leave the front door open until it was short enough to be able to close the door.Foolish? That would be burning an open fire outside to heat your home indoors, therefore I am not a fool, and rightly so - not foolish. Next question...
