Should something happen with the clandestine heatilator yer at the mercy of your insurance company as to whether or not they'll cover you. Read this on the interweb so it must be true.

Having said all of that, there's nothing like wood heat.

You're probably also aware of the whole sawdust/any source of ignition thing as well.
Keep the shop clean, store flammables and combustibles in another location, have proper fire suppression device close at hand. Surplus flam locker wound be nice, if you can find one.

Pretty sure it's the the same here, EXCEPT... If your insurance company does an inspection, and they can, they could choose to cancel you or raise your rates tot he point that you may wish they had.

I'm no expert on any of this so ymmv

I was referring to something more like this but in less of a "Here, hold my beer, watch this" way.

Good, bad or indifferent, not the case down this way. Do it myself I still need a permit. Heat source requires FD inspection. Assuming someone goes through the permit process. Upon inspection, if they find Joe Homeowner's charred remains at the panel they can tell the survivors they did it all wrong.

This. And we know insurance companies aren't looking for reasons to ditch you and keep your preminums..
Most homeowners in this area are good about telling us they are going to install wood stoves. We give them the inspection specs they install and we check it and sign off on it.

After a relaxing three days in FL, I managed to make my way safely across the south to AZ. Rode about a thousand miles of county roads through AL, MS, LA and half of TX before hitting I-10 for the rest of the trip. Love those county roads in TX - two lane country roads with 70 mph limits - - damn that was fun!

Arriving in AZ


The FL to AZ run





My wife says it's been a little chilly back there . . .

























Yeah, I know . . . I suck.

That GS is barely broken in. Nice seat. Bet that's even more comfortable than the stock one which I believe is one of the most comfortable seats to come out of a bike factory.

Please continue to remind us how much you suck.

Sounds like you had a good run and it appears the bike must have performed as expected.

Keep the updates coming as they help fend off the chill back here

I have a lot of fond riding memories on those Texas "FM" roads. And I'll echo the sentiment that you need to keep the updates coming.
