My sister and her boyfriend rented the most remote and reclusive cottage that they could find.
- It was a fifty minute drive from the rental office, which was located in the garage of the rental agent.
The nearest town was three hours away, which was kind of intimidating for my sister. But, she kept her fears to herself. She’s a city girl, born and bred. So, fending for herself in the woods did not appeal to her. Her boyfriend, however, wanted some place in the middle of nowhere, so that’s what they did for the long weekend. It wasn’t really cold that weekend, however it got cold at night so they decided to use the wood burning oil furnace. There were two space heating systems in the closet, which was really comforting to have as a backup for heat. But, since my sister and her boyfriend were “roughing it” they decided to start a fire first. There was no firewood ready for the oil furnace, however there was an axe, a hatchet, and a woodpile out back. In the pretty red light of the setting sun, her boyfriend stripped off his shirt and chopped firewood for the oil furnace while my sister watched on. He got tepid and sweaty filling up that oil furnace with kindling and logs. Seeing her boyfriend act so macho got my sister hot, too! By the end of the weekend they were both huge fans of using the wood burning oil furnace, so they talked about getting a single for their place. My sister and her boyfriend never even bothered taking the space heating systems out of the closet because they felt quite cozy.
