Last year for my anniversary, my hubby took me to a beautiful national park out in the middle of nowhere. We both wanted to be alone so we could have no interruptions. We barely had cell service most of the time; the section both of us were in was entirely remote. We’d chosen to rent a small log chalet close to the outskirts of the park. Both of us were really excited about getting back to nature and spending a quiet month with each other. When we finally arrived at the chalet on our anniversary, it was near the end of October. We were having some pretty warm weather, and after both of us had been there for a couple of mornings, the weather suddenly turned cooler. We were freezing after the sun went down! Only then did we even realize that we had no idea what type of heating component the chalet was equipped with. Neither one of us had thought to ask the building owners since it had been so warm outside. But then after it turned so cold, we had no cell service so both of us couldn’t ask them over the phone either! So we looked all over the chalet for a gas furnace, an oil furnace, a heating pump, a kerosene heater, or even a wood burning stove. But we just couldn’t find anything of the sort. Then we happened to notice a large stack of firewood outside the door. It was right then that both of us figured out that we had no way of heating our chalet except with seasoned firewood and a wood burning fireplace! It ended up being entirely romantic, once my husband finally got the fire going.
