When Density Is Good

Finding a nice bit of fatwood in the forest is always a pleasure and this one is an especially fine one. It's so infused with resin it weights almost 50 lbs and will yield a full season's supply of high-quality kindling for getting fires started quickly on these very cold winter mornings.

A few pieces of this tossed on still glowing coals from the night before allows me to ignore the stove to make breakfast, and by the time I sit down with coffee the fire is roaring away.
