And since then, Allen has fielded more newby questions than I could ever imagine doing. Whenever a new person visits the wood burning section, Al welcomes them and directs them to the appropriate resources according to their needs and knowledge level. This must save E&E a good chunk of time as moderators. Thumbs up to Al.
I am so happy to hear about Erica's new book. I love the idea of rocket stoves/heaters/hot waterheaters, and have played with them a little. I'm wondering if this is the Rocket Stove book for dummies, because that is the version I need. Looking forward to reading the book and (hopefully) putting it into practice.
I put up a good handful of my favorite resources there, as well as links to videos and promo stuff.
If you like the way I write, our "Art of Fire" is an illustrated handbook and the digital version goes for $8 at www.scubbly.com.
Printed versions are $12 (call it $14 with shipping) and if they're ordered this week I should be able to get them all out in time for Christmas.
"Art of Fire" doesn't assume anything about your existing stove (or even that you have one). The advice starts with an open hearth and works up to common types of stoves and ovens (but doesn't go into rocket mass heaters).
Thanks for tuning in, and hope you are staying warm and cozy this winter!
This is a bit later than usual, but we finally have winners!
Allen Lumley and Patrick Freeburger
Congratulations Allen and Patrick. I sent you an email asking you for the name of the person who referred you to permies first. That person, will also get a copy of Erica's book and a permies care package.
