In my book, desolate is a good thing. I spent too many years working in NYC and now I'm over the moon living in my slice of heaven. Coyote, bear, fishers, bobcat, redtails and barred owls make wonderful neighbors.
I'm a transplant from down that way too. Yes, critters are good neighbors, . . . plus, now, . . . I don't have to waste a half tank of gas finding a parking space !
And welcome to coal heat. I'm sure that if anyone can help you get the most out of your stove, it's the great folks on here.
