Robert,

Thanks for the tip on the splitter!  Will be renting on a friday!

Comment by Jan Carter on December 3, 2014 at 16:38

OK Tobias, I am one of the folks that actually did that.  LOL, just trust me when I tell you it can be ugly.  My friend and I cleared her yard in Macon years ago and the nest day did the burn pile.  Luckily I am not allergic so it just turned into bronchitis very bad.  She on the other hand did end up with a few days in the hospital

The burning of Poison Ivy...LOL...is very bad for those who are allergic to this plant. I am not one of those people.

I just ran across a website while looking for something else.  Among other things,  It talk about the dangers of burning poison ivy. (Most of the time this is done by accident.

From the site:  "The word is that you CAN get poison ivy from working with the vine in winter AND you can get it in your lungs if you burn it and breathe the smoke. Gack!"

Apparently Poison Ivy vines will get wrapped around trees  and are cut up along with the fire wood. Or campers collect the  leafless vines  in the winter and use them for kindling wood

Learned a lot that I did not know.

Miss Jan, I just installed a wood burning stove in my camp. Burning fire wood is a great way to stay warm. If you don't have a log splitter you can rent one for the week end for a good price. We pick the splitter up on Friday afternoon and bring it back on Monday mourning and we are only charged for one day of rent.

Jan, get those emergency space blankets that EMTs use and sew then into your drapes between the lining and fabric.  They'll help retain heat but will also help in summer to keep heat out.

Right now were about -10F and there is very little transfer from any of our windows although we did use the heavier true Space Blanket as the liner.

It sure has started out cold . Already had to make it one night in the farmhouse with no traditional heat. A small wood stove kept the main body of the house at about 70 degrees with an outside temp of 25F

Sure would like to know if he made it.  they say this winter will be colder than normal, not so much snowier than normal but colder.  Anyone doing anything special to be prepared.  I dont want higher heating bills so I am having a wood stove installed

Who survives a Minnesota Winter in a 30 ft Travel trailer? A fellow by the name of Jason Hak, check his YouTube, no,posts after that? Real survival or failure? Are you prepared this winter!
