Penny and Tom rented such a remote house in the woods which was an hour’s drive from the rental office located in the garage of the rental agent.
Their nearest neighbor was two hours away, which was kind of intimidating for Penny.
But, she kept her fears to herself. Penny is a city girl, born and bred, therefore fending for herself in the woods was an odd experience. But Tom wanted some locale in the middle of nowhere, so that became their plan for the long weekend. It wasn’t truly frigid that weekend, but it got chilly at night so Peris and Tom decided to use the wood burning furnace. The cabin had some heaters in the closet, which was truly comforting to have as a backup for heat. But, because they were “roughing it” they saw it fit to light a fire. The house didn’t have firewood ready for the furnace, but there was an axe, a hatchet, and a woodpile outside. In the pretty orange light of the setting sun, Tom stripped off his shirt and chopped firewood for the furnace while my Penny enjoyed the view. Tom got overheated and sweaty filling up that furnace with the firewood. The macho got Penny quite excited. When the long weekend came to an end, Penny and Tom were both huge fans of using the wood burning furnace. They even spoke about getting the same back home. They never even bothered taking the heaters out of the closet since the cabin wasn’t cold.
