Since our stove is at a seasonal cabin, it sees only limited use during the winter, mostly because of limited assess in bad weather. As a result, we buy our coal in 50# bags. So far this year we've used maybe 10 bags....not nearly as many as I would have liked to have used.
Oddly, the township considers dirt road with no full time residents to be a low priority
. Go figure!! They might feel differently if they wanted to drive those roads to get to their cabin in the woods and enjoy the warm glow of a nice coal fire, a good book, and perhaps an adult beverage with no other people for at least a couple miles in any direction while the snow drifts silently to the ground...but I digress!
