I know up to me.

Have Central Heat which does fine but eats up the Propane.

Got a Heater and Propane Fireplace that are to heat 1,000 Sq. Ft. apiece. Have Propane Logs that can be used in the Fireplace which is supposed to heat 1,000 Sq. Ft. House is 2,000 Sq. Ft.

 

One year we used the Heater and Fireplace Logs kept the house 80 degrees and used 650 gallons of Propane.

Our Son says instead of putting the Logs in the Fireplace I have plenty of trees down to just use some wood.

If I go with wood I’ll have to make sure I have a Chainsaw going. My wife says I’m not taking my Pickup or New Mower into the woods so will have to figure out something there.

Putting on Metal Roof which should change things.

Would be good exercise.

oneshot needs to just buy that boat he has been talking about head to wrenches neck of the woods and party!

If you can afford a new vehicle but don't plan on buying one, just spend that $$$ on propane. Spend $$$ a few months out of the year versus paying for a vehicle all year long. We replaced our old

Son picked up bunch of scrap Metal. Told him to take the extra bad Batteries.

I still have 10 pounds of Lead to mold Bullets.

Son will clean the Flue. Actually it is set up pretty good for Wood Heat. Put the wood in the Box from outside. Ashes can be taken out from the outside.

Only problem is dust getting from the Ash Bin into the A/C unit. I need to blow it out.

I have plenty of wood and I guess I will have help getting wood up.

I have several trees I killed like this one and several down.

Another question maybe this is just in my head but seems wood just piled up burns better long as it don’t have snow on it or it just rained.

Thinking of using my Pickup even though my wife says no.

It is 17 years old but my wife says it is the last Pickup I’ll ever have.

Thing is most the time I won’t fully load it and only going couple hundred yards in the woods.

Put different gas in the Chainsaw and it is running just fine.

The hell you say!!! 😲

The next time she grabs her dobber bag and heads for the Moose Lodge, you inform her that unless she wins BIG this is the last round of Bingo she's gonna participate in, until you get a new truck.

Well she works at the Bingo Hall and can’t play.

I could afford a New Pickup but would be better to buy an older one that don’t cry when you put a load on it.

Their proud of New Pickups.

I wouldn't buy a new truck if I was a multi-millionaire.   Absolutely hate them.   

I'd love to have my 99 Z71 restored to like new condition though.   If I could do without it for a couple months I would definitely have that done.  

A '78 square nose Chevy 3/4 or Big 10 454 would be cool too.   But I despise manual lockout hubs.

We had two ‘84 Ford Pickups Straight 300.

Tuff Pickups. One I dropped a tree on it with me in it. Not pretty.

Stupid me had a ‘95 GMC before this one very good Pickup had 300,000 miles on it. Only problem.

By far and away the 2017 Ram 2500 Laramie with Cummins power is the best truck I've ever owned.  It might actually be the last truck I ever own.  But who knows what the future actually holds.

300 straight six is one of the best motors Ford ever made.  The single turbo 6.7 powerstroke was a good one too.
