I am Matt Looby and I live in Wadhams, NY. I live on the NE part of the Adirondak State Park. It's a very rural and wooded area and situated very close
to Lake Champlain. We get maybe two weeks of hot summer days a year. Spring comes late and fall early. Durning summer nights, temps can briefly drop into the upper 30's and 40's. I have been heating my home with oil and an electric heater and I finally made the move to coal stove.
Most of my friends have and use wood or coal. I just picked up a used red enamel Vigilant 2310 from a farmer in Vermont. I am cleaning it and getting it
up to snuff, and then it's on to installing a prefab chimney.
I just wanted to say I appreciate all the information I have read on the forums. Thanks!
