Re: [DMCForum] Garage/shop heating


I thought you lived in Las Vegas!!  Does it get that
cold in your part of the country??  Just kidding!!
:-)  You may hate propane, but have you ever played
golf on New Year's Day in northern Kentucky.  Up
there, they attach a heater to a propane bottle that
you hook up to a barbarque grill.  You'd be surprised
how much heat it puts out.  A big plus, you can get
the bottle refilled almost anywhere, even Walmart will
take your bottle on trade-in.  Check it out and if you
can't find anything out in your part of the woods,
contact me offline and I'll let you know where to buy
all the basics.
