    A friend of ours who has a cabin said it is higher, I had never heard of it either. Correct, no sales tax. Or income tax. Just crazy high property tax!

    Here in northern Wisconsin, most of the firewood is either oak or maple. I love the smell of the smoke from an oak fire, it brings back memories of hot chocolate and cookies in front of the fireplace.
    My parents have a neighbor who installed on of those outdoor woodburners furnace thingy's - good-golly, I don't know what he is burning in there but it really stinks. It stinks up the whole neighborhood. Alot of their neighbors have wood fireplaces, so it used to be nice to step outside and catch a wiff of the neighbors fireplace, but not anymore.

    Back in Wyoming, we burnt Ponderosa Pine. All beetle killed and standing dead on a neighbors (8 miles down the road) property. We were "helping" her by taking the wood away so she didn't have to worry about a wildfire. the smoke from the pine wasn't too bad either, but the smoke from the elm we bought from Nebraska was not pleasant.
