I had a good laught today :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

I was visiting a museum about the Dain empire, and this object caught my eye... this wood stove is more than 2000 years old, and same problems as us :lmao: :lmao:

The rest of the artifacts where stunning... I'll try to post the pictures!

How about using wood ash like in the rocket stove.. The way I'm thinking, you'd put a layer of sand in the bottom(wet or damp), then fill up with ash to the last half inch or so, and then maybe another layer of sand(damp again).. Once you get things hot in there it'd seel the ash in place ...

How's it sound to you all ??

:confused: Tux


Yeah it sounds good but are you intending for the insulation to stay in there permanently?

Would it work if you emptied it out for travelling then refilled it with soil each time you made camp?

Hhm, I had forgotten about the Kelly Kettle.

Same sort of principle as the rocket stove.....

I don't see why you couldn't keep the ash in it once you got the sand dried out, and set in place.. Also yes you could just fill and empty with dirt each time that you set up camp... I guest that would be a personal preference choice on one's part..


Also instead of sand to keep the ash in why not clay ?? You wouldn't need mush for the top and bottom layers I'd imagine.. Guess that'll be another experiment to try..

I have used the woodstove gazifier a few times now, and it works extremely well. one of the things I like is that it does not darken much the bottom of the pots, ant that the colour left does not leave the pot when you touch it :wink2:
It is heavy to carry for trips, but it is a good wild camping alternative to a gas or alcool stove, very efficient too, I hope they will make one for hikers someday.
