I joined this forum because I was new the the OWB world and when I got my stove this nice guy "Slimjim" came down to my house and helped me get my boiler online and told me that I should join this forum because there was a wealth of knowledge on here and he was right. It has been a great experience for me and I have learned a lot. There are many people here with a lot of experience with many different things. Seems like lately a lot of posts start off positive and then get completely off topic. Heated discussions are not always bad if they are relevant to the topic. General discussion might be the place to discuss problems between dealers , manufactures , and customers , not in a topic started on a particular subject. I'm guessing that since purchasing and operating an OWB is an adult matter that we are all adults here , lets try and keep it that way. Maybe we aren't all friends here and many of us have never met anyone else they talk to here , but I consider you all my friends as I'm sure many of you feel the same way. Lets keep it clean and interesting for all of us on here as well as all the guests who come on here every day , some of who could be your next customers.  :thumbup:

Usually happens every year on a ag forum I help moderate, usually happens late February early March. Guys have cabin fever, its starting to get nice but not nice enough to actually do anything. That winter when we had polar vortex after polar vortex was especially fun trying to stay ahead of the BS.
