If only I was not an occasional lurker on permies before the Wisner's workshop in Brooks, Maine. Really hope they come back to this neck of the woods!

Hi, Ernie and Erica. Dale here. I've come into several hundred Royal Dalton, Franklin mint type collector plates, and plan to give you a dozen of them to use as prizes for various contests if you'd like. I would send them out to the winners so that you won't incur work or expense.

I also have a brand new pair of size 13 work boots that are yours if they'll fit.

Hi good people! I am a rocket mass heater enthusiast from Sarajevo. So far I have only done some online reading, but looking forward to experimenting this summer! Thank you all for this opportunity for learning!

I am the proud owner of a shiny new 55 gal steel drum. For rocket stove-building purposes, is that too much space for the re-burn chamber? Would a five-gallon metal drum be better? Too many questions. Doh! I need a guru. Maybe a book, even.

Paul, I will bribe you with dollars if you make your DVD set available for those of us too slow to help with your kickstarter campaign.

Hello Erica and Ernie, I have a rustic cabin in the woods, can I use a rocket heater indoors safely?
It can get cold here in BC Canada. Looking forward to reading your book. Jane

Welcome to the forum. I'm looking into off-grid drying of herbs in a damp area. Looking forward to finally building and modifying one for that purpose.

So I ran the winner picker app in the forum software and only one of the winners was on the daily-ish email... bummer.

Josh Evans

Congratulations Josh!

I sent you an email to ask for the email address of the person that first referred you to Permies.com. That person (if qualified) will also get a copy of the book.
