This is a link to a .pdf I think I mentioned at our first meeting. David had mentioned Rocket stoves, and this is a pamphlet that shows how to make a simple one. <http://weblife.org/ca...­

If there is a need for #10 cans for use in rocket stove making, school cafeterias are excellent sources for these. I could probably harvest a few.

I did some reading about camp/emergency stoves a few years back and settled on a woodgas stove. I wimped out and bought one rather than making one, but it's possible to make one. In this video, a young stovemaker supplies instructions. The sound is not on this video the best, but I could follow the instructions.

When I've cooked a dinner on the woodgas stove, all that remains is biochar. After wood gasifications begins (that is, once the fuel is burning well), there's almost no smoke. The model I use has a battery-operated fan. I'd prefer to bypass batteries, myself and operate the fan by other means.

The wood gasification process can be used to power vehicles and produce electricity, which could be useful at times, given that sun and wind are variable. There's more information on wood gasification and its potentials here: http://www.morrisvill...­.
