I've considered that possibility, which is why I've invested in a horse-drawn buggy, decked out like Mad Max's . :P

I still say go with both. The pellet stove is more efficient, less labor intensive, requires less prep time (drying and curing wood), and is cheaper for heating in the current state of things, which could vanish, but I'd say is unlikely to do so any time soon. The wood stove will burn anything, and will work should the grid go down for longer than a pellet stove and generator can last.

God's love is manifest in the landscape as in a face.  - John Muir

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil

Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads. - Thoreau, Walden
