Hi..my name is dave and im addicted to coal, coal smoke, and coal accessories. The Air Force sent me up here to Alaska around four years ago and within a year and a half of those four i fell in love with the place. About a year ago i bought a log cabin a bit out from Wasilla to get some peace and quiet and that i got. All last year i heated my house with a Toyostove Laser 73, which let me down in early January with temps around -30. Ever since then ive wanted something better that would never let me down. I heard about people burning coal a little further north of here and finally found a coal guy pretty close to where i live. I shelled out some big bucks and got a locally made Romax stove(works too good) and got my first load of coal, ever since, ive been in love
Its been a little too warm for me to burn much coal this winter. The house needs sub zero temps for it to not be 80 in the house. If i work it right i can keep the temp close to 73 or so but thats if everything goes right. Im just glad i found this forum because the guys at work are ready to strangle me i talk about coal so much. I finally have a place to vent, glad to be a part of the forum.
