I live in Easton, Maine County of Aroostook. I am 42yo and served 6 years in the Navy, got out and earned a bachelors degree before going to work in federal law enforcement. I am a single father of two young teen boys and we enjoy hunting, fishing, atv rides, snowmobiling, etc. My first experience with coal was in the mid 90's and really enjoyed the heat that it provided. When I built my second home in 2005, my spouse at the time, did not want coal or wood in the house. So, I installed an outdoor wood boiler that heats 3 of the 4 homes here on the family "compound". Needless to say, I want to burn coal! And will come hell or high water! I have not been a member of this site for very long, but am very impressed with the wide variety of knowledge that is spread around by all of you experienced folks!
