Warms the cool damp basement
Wood Warms Twice
Pick up the wood, carry it to the truck - makes me warm
Carry the wood from the truck to the cut and split pile - makes me warm
Cut and split the wood and carry to the wood shed - makes me warm
Carry the wood from the wood shed to the basement - makes me warm
Finally, having a fire makes me and the whole family warm
Wood is a renewable resource, so is a great substitute for natural gas and electricity.
I burn white birch and dry jackpine.
Great BTU (heat) from both.
I am lucky to work in the forest around Timmins, Ontario for Millson Forestry Service.
The best deal on Cut and Split dry white birch wood is Millson's
What is great is you can buy a box full, pickup load or dump truck full.
Second Annual Hiking Day
Warm and sunny, just like we planned.
Long hike and short hike.
Did not want the hot chocolate at the end of the hike the cold juice box was more to my liking.
We walked a gentle 4 km, discussing the Hersey Lake area, trees and mushrooms.
