My car hasn't actually went anywhere or done anything for the last 3 days. I think that might be the longest since I've gotten it lol

I love the wood heat. Pretty much free other than effort and we often have the door and some windows open in the dead of winter because yes, it can get hot. But fresh air in January is a good thing.

The analog splitter and a few other activities keep my muscles toned and heart healthy. I do use a gas splitter for rounds 24 inches +. At 57 with a life of "bad habits" my BP runs 120/60 and sitting pulse of 60.

I came across the hat at a sale, I think it was only $10. My favorite one and it'* alot more stained and worn then the pic makes it to be. I can always use another 1 or two for sure.
