Hello there. I'm new to this forum and to coal burning. But it's been 3 days since firing up my warm morning 520 and I'm already hooked! My husband thinks i'm insane, but a very warm insane woman is more fun than a cold one! The posts i've read from this forum have been a life saver. the house we have moved into has been my family's hunting cabin. it's an old brick house that on a sunny day you can see sunlight coming through the brick like a movie projector. great fun on a blizzardy day. 3 rooms have been insulated, the rest are sieves. with no furnace. we must rely on our own wits to stay warm. and never go anywhere for more than a day. i'd have it no other way. I've said all that to say this: where can I buy some good coal for minimal money? I have a wood burning stove upstairs, and the warm morning 520 in the basement. it's nice to have warm toasty feet instead of biting cold feet!.
I guess I botched this whole post. Didn't even have a subject title somehow. hopefully someone will read it!
