Hey Thanks GaryPA
As a fellow never ever having driven a mile on woodgas I have been standing aside on this one.
So, if DJ will forgive me, let me rephrase his very appropriate WHY topic lead into my own words:
“What is my motivation to power my life with wood?” O.K. . . . .
Look at this picture set . . . . sigh, this format will NOT let me insert them here.
All these pictures are a just a few of the other fingers on the full two hands of a Life my wife and I were raised in, and have chosen to go back to, to be better, responsible, Human Beings with a stewardship for the Future - - for what We would leave behind to those who will follow on after us.
If you understand these pictures you will know wood gasification should never be more than just one finger on the the full two hands of capabilties needed for living as personally, responsibly, free, and independent as possible.
All my Internet blabbed gasification efforts are to show people who would understand these pictures that they are not alone, not crazy, not stupid for wanting to get back some personal control over thier lives.
Anyone interested I can lay out valid reasons heating with your own wood WILL add ten years to your life. Proven. Priceless.
Growing at least a percentage of your produce, your own eggs and meats IS actually cheaper and healthier for ALL: you, the critters, your neighbors and Mother Earth. Priceless too.
Doing these things along with personal use wood gasification means you chose to be an active responsible productive Producer in Life instead of an always in debt passive spirit numbed down Consumer.
As far building to drive on wood . . . I have been very skeptical that loosing out again this capabilty would lead to the short sighted raping of trees AGAIN. Naw. ArvidO is correct . . people are far too numbed, too dumbed down, too myopic push button lazy now for more than a percent of a percent to ever actually get to the point of needing to use the woodfuel for driving.
My last picture veiwed past the apple tree has our woodlot in the background.
I will build now to drive on wood to offset the Caesar dollars I must now pay out for the Caesar Blood Oil and use my tree wood fuel instead - WayneK and others here have shown me now this is realistic today DOable. The then those freed up Caesar dollars can go instead to pay the unavoidable annual Caesar dollars needed for the annual Caesar taxes to keep our tree property we already own.
Ha! Ha! No. They will not take eggs, meats, produce or even firewood as Direct Barter.
