Well I finally got my three days no-rain dring out so was super busy yesterday f-i-n-a-l-l-y getting our main 34' x 68' garden plot tilled in. Rain today. And for the next 5-6 days.
Be no sweet corn this season - now too short from frost to frost. Had two mornings of hard frost with the good-day overnight clear sky's.
So . . . I am a little late seeing this, and responding.
I am glad you sorted this out properly Chris Saenz.
Just goes to show that TOO MANY still insist that there is only one-way, one-team, one-true-god version: THEIRS.
I have often wanted to put up a topic that says BEFORE you would believe and base any decisions on anything you should commit yourself to reading , studying THREE different book versions of any topic or viewpoint.
I DID say this in my posted up review on his site, Amazon, and here on the DOW of BenP's first book version.
And named the books I would recommend.
So let me make this clear to all - offend possibly many.
Christian stuff I will read a KJV bible, a Roman Catholic version, and an Orthodox version too. All professing to know the true meaning of Jesus Christ as translated from Greek and other original written languages. THEN, and only then, will I make a decision to possibly live by.
Next the decision must pass muster of other wise men - who are not Christians. But wise humanists I have come to respect also.
So, wood-for-shafts-power in addition to BenP's books versions I still recommend reading at least two others:
1974's The Pegasus Unit - The Lost Art of Driving With Wood (in resources here on the DOW as Drive WITH Wood);
1984's? Producer Gas - Another Alternative Motor Fuel;
Vesa Mikkonan's since 2000, Driving With Wood book;
Chris and Wayne's book.
Once you get two out of three to agree with each other - WITHOUT referencing to each other - then believe/do/build.
But that's just me. The most direct practical use guy I can make myself be.
Some you "must-be" "better" "Only One Way" "True-Believers" can just go ahead paying in to the Man, any Man-Priest who profits from your lazy-think, lazy-reading, spoon-fed expectant addiction habits.
True knowing costs much. In time set aside-used up; personal energy spent; and even hard to get, can-only-use-once $'s expended. "Free" is a social disease expensively treated with rounds of antibiotics if you are lucky. Free information is a current culture social disease. Reject this gotcha' entrapment.
$19 bucks is about inexpensive as buildable worked-use proven wood-for-power plans as you will get. Expect this to go up on the next offering.
I knew about this three months ago. Hush-mouthed friends are the true friends to have. BenP has no awareness of the May DOW get-to-gathers. He is in his own world striving to re-invent that world around himself as he lives in it. He lives Rural, surrounded by fast growing, trees-as-weeds, too.
