    Locust will do that too, that's why I was wondering about other woods.
    I'll let you have it, as long as I got my black locust :sweet:.
    I feel very fortunate to have it around here :yes:.

    Depends on the species, I think. Blue gum certainly does if you have had it shut down overnight then open it up in the morning.

    Yeah burnt a few bits of wood here and there that spark a bit at times, I couldn't tell you what they were now though, all I know is it's wood burn it, that's pretty much how it goes for me and firewood collecting. We've got 3 loads to cut tomorrow which should be interesting for this fat barstard:crazy:

    Hopefully it’s busy enough to be fun but not so busy we can’t get a table. Looking forward to checking it out.

    Hopefully it'll be lively, never been there on a night that wasn't. It's a pity that I'm working away from home this week or I'd join you in a heartbeat :(

    Darn it, that settles it then. I’m just going to have to come back to Ireland! Too bad, it would be welcome company.

    It’s the vacation of a lifetime. Ireland is so beautiful in its impossible ruggedness and every shade of green. It truly is the Emerald Isle. We’ve done a fair bit of the wild Atlantic way and every 50 ft you want to stop and take a picture. Loving the rich culture and the friendly people.

    @Flint Mitch is out that way, and quite a few guys from another forum firewood hoarders.
    I'm about an 1.5hrs straight west of flint which you will go right thru.
    As far as saw shops go I don't frequent them often, they are like gas stations, if you go in you will spend money :laugh:.
    If you need anything while up here feel free to contact me, I'll shoot you my contact info.

    I am from that general area! Leo's saw shop in Clio is a good small Stihl dealer. There is a large John Deer/Stihl dealer in Frankenmuth, but I'm not a fan. Frankenmuth is a fun place, but be prepared to spend some money in the many tourist trap shops!

    There is also Card Brothers Equipment in Chesaning which is a Dolmar dealer. Was only in there once to fondle a few saws, but it seemed like a decent place

    Frankenmuth is a cute little place. The chicken dinner is worth having once in your life. We used to go quite regularly and stay at birch run at a campground. Outlet mall is great for the wife and kids. I always looked at that trip as paying it forward for the times that I wanted something. Lol. I saw absolutely no deals on Craig’s list in central Michigan, somebody there snaps up everything! I won’t mention his name but will just look at him and whistle...:innocent: @chipper1

    Already have reservations at Zender’s for Thanksgiving dinner. Can’t remember when but one year for their Thanksgiving buffet they had 7,771 people go thru. That place has good food.
