Don't disrepair guys, I have at least 3 stoker boilers I will be working on over the Summer doldrums. I'll keep you posted.

You're right though, it does seem pretty dead around here!

This is true FF, but Freddy's post about the blackflies did not get by me....I spent way to long working in the great outdoors in Maine to not remember the multitudes of biting flies....My wife and I have been biking on nearby trails in the Harrison Bay State park, 4.5 miles of offroad, gentle but not smooth trails that follow the waters edge. I have seen more deer, and ticks, then mosquito's or any other biting fly...it is like a paradise to someone that endured them for so many years. There are far more houseflies then biting flies when we cook on the grill.....like 100% more. I would not be returning to Maine if I did not own properties and have to maintain them. Plus the field naming ceremony at the local HS after my father and his brother is kinda special this year.

Ahhh Yes...... Winter is over and there are a hundred ltitle things to do around the house.

I also noticed a big drop in the new post notifications since the outside temperatures warmed up. During the off season I look forward to keeping up with the new stove Craiglist finds thread. With the new format there isn't an option to comment other than by private message,or opening up a new thread on a particular stove which helped me cope with my coal withdrawal.

I still try to check in a few times a week, but since the change my email notifications for that particular thread have dropped off considerably, my PM's have picked up a bit and I find myself in contact with our members more by phone, text, Facebook or email for details on the condition, location, or their interest in a stove.

Meanwhile, all is well here and I'm working on setting up my new shop, waiting for some parts to come back from Tomahawk, and my trim from the plater. Soooooo, hopefully in the next two weeks I can add a few updates to help us thru this spring depression. :D
