Hi all. Permaculture newbie here. I have become greatly interested in rocket stoves, and rocket mass heaters. In conveying my new found hobby to my father-in-law, I seem to have piqued his interest as well. Our question is this, we live in the Stevensville, MT area and we were wondering if there were anyone with a working RMH nearby (Say within 50 miles or so of Missoula) that would be willing to let us come out and see it in action. Thanks in advance.

Jim Barnes : There is nothing wrong with your location, you are in the Eye of the Storm as it were, But your timing leaves a little to be desired, things are
a little busy right now with getting ready for a ''RMH Masters workshop'' at the wheaton labs just now !

A couple of suggestions ! Go to Video Villiage.org and look for a series of videos 'Thermal Mass Rocket Stoves with Ernie Wisner, this should connect you
with a series of short videos showing about 5/8ths of an upscale build done by our moderators ernie and erica Wisner, This shows of a Dvd that is for sale,
It has one of the best production values of any rocket stove Build, and qualifies for eye-candy !

At the top of the page where it says permies >> forums >> energy >> rocket stoves, click on the "rocket stoves'', this will take you to a page
of all the past and present rocket stove listings, newest 1st !

About 1/2 way down the page you can click on 'video: great rocket mass heaters in upstate N.Y. and Quebec' the 1st video is of a woman who has just lived
through her 1st winter of using E & Es Daybed style rocket mass heater RMH, hopefully these will set you up nicely for your future Home/ RMH tour !

For the good of the crafts, hope this was useful and timely, Big AL !

Thank you sir. I'll certainly check out those video links. I am currently saving up to purchase a copy of "the book" as well as the videos. I kinda figured my timing was poor with the big goin's on at the Wheaton labs. I'll do the video thing and maybe when things slow down a bit ( I can hear Paul laughing hysterically in the back ground) I can squeeze a peek in. Thanks again for the advice

Hi jim ; I'm in trout creek ,a little farther than 50 miles , it's 110 miles to missoula (apx 2 hrs) and stevi is another 30 beyond that , so about a 2.5 hr drive and you can come see mine. I just finished a rebuild and with the 45 degree mornings I have been burning it a little each day, not because i need it ... just because its rebuilt and i want to run it !

If you're willing to come to Sandpoint you can see my way out of the box heater. Fully described in my thread.

Thomas thanks for the invite, I spoke with my father-in-law and that sounds like a trip we'd like to make. He said he'd like to wait till it's a tad cooler so he can "feel" the warmth as it were. So if you're still willing, I will be in contact in the near future. Alan-thank you also for the invite, we might take you up on it the next time we head to Spokane.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
