Ha! Ha! Now that is said like a true PNW wetsider RandyM:
"I can get all (the DougFir) I want for free. Oak and other hardwoods are a little harder to come by."
You are going to like the Doug Fir as a gasifier power wood - as good as the pines - I think now even better. These are both easy to grow and cut/chunk. Now those damn hardwoods are best sold for furniture wood $'s to pay the Gov’Mint taxes and the culls/scraps used for night banked back heating fires.
No joke my hats off to all of those Eastern fellows with only hardwoods stuck gasifing it having to handle all of it’s cogging ash.
