    I've been using cardboard egg cartons for years. I've found that wood chips from my chainsaw work better than saw dust. Next time I make some I'll use shredded paper (Joy fills the container every week).

    Only time I ever went down and got hurt was on a dirt trail. Never even had a close call on pavement.

    SOLO An Interesting Twig Stove

    I've had a generic gasifier twig stove for a few years and like it a lot ! My sons were so impressed with it that they asked for one as gifts. Older son uses his as his primary stove.

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Thanks Jack. Only got 1 weekend trip with my sons and a few close friends (only way Joy would consent to my going). Physically, I'm in better shape than I have been in for 4 years but she still frets and worries. Next summer (if I can find another foolish old geezer to go along) I want to...

    Tales from the Log of the Ruptured Duck

    Grandkids are God's reward for you not killing your own kids when they were growing up!:) I find it hard to believe that we have a 27 yr old grandson. Even harder to believe that our kids are 47, 49 & 50.o_O We must have started when we were ten!
