It's a good thing for this
end of November and silking corn(late season) in the field??
5kg of fall pots
and then there's this......aaarrrggghhh
8 years of regular use or abuse actually, have taken their toll. This translates into 4 years of daily use as the primary heat source. I think it will need a major rebuild, which is beyond my ability.
bolts are weak and snap when turned. The damper is completely warped. Inner heat shields are cracked and more. I have it rigged so we can still make small fires though.
will be saving this nice driftwood and resorting to the giant kerosene heater as the primary.
Always wanted to make a tipi and found this http://simplydifferently.org/Tipi great site which gave me the push needed . It's made of flame retardant white tarp 3.6m X 7.2m and rather thin bamboo poles. So much more cozy than the old Coleman, but more suited to colder weather.
I don't know who likes it more the kids or me.
A lovely place to enjoy some of this...
