    The Chatterbox and the Wood Gas Stove

    made a vid where I test my new wood gas stove in the dirt for the first time. The runt is also there, chattering away :-)

    Victory awaits the one, that has everything in order - luck we call it
    Defeat is an absolute consequense for the one that have neglected to do the necessary preparations - bad luck we call it

    Yes he is veru easy to bring out with us when we go. But what a chatterbox he is. So sadly sometimes I just tune him out. It takes a lot of concentration to listen and respond to everything that falls out of his mouth :-)

    Bushcrafter? Sure. It's soon time to start knife training him :-)

    He allready know the song:

    Rules for whitling
    Sit on your bum
    strike away from you
    boy or girl
    Then you must never
    whitle towards others
    knife must be in the sheath
    at the end.

    Direct translation. The kids learn this song at the daycare centre :-)

    But thats when a back up bag of cat litter comes in handy, a small bag will be sufficient for a couple of uses. Oh and as to learning that song in day school Rune maybe we could do with something like that over here to educate our kids in the proper care and use of knives !

    Wonderful video and it's good to see your son is so enthusiastic. Do you call him snoopy because he likes to sleep on top of his kennel a true outdoorsman in the making.

    But that defeats the object ! you might as well have gas or meths in that case.... its quicker and cleaner on your pans.

    Depends what the object is. If it is merely to heat food, etc, I'd agree, just use a fuel stove, but if the object is to heat food, settle back, enjoy the constant play of light from the flames in the gathering gloom while you "get out the little pipe and reduce a bit of navy plug to its lowest denomination " (sorry, I don't smoke, I was channelling Nessmuk there for a moment!) or just take a deep breath and take in your surroundings .... I'll take the wood pellets please.

    If I want all that I do it proper and light a fire, not enough cosy from that sort of stove for me, and I certainly cant grill a fish how I like it on one.jmo

    Exactly what I was thinking. I looked at woodgas stoves a while ago, came to the conclusion that if you want a quick brew then it's meths or gas. If your staying in camp overnight then you can't beat a fire!
