    It is the first time in my camping life that I experienced
    four seasons in one week.
    On Tuesday afternoon we were swimming in Canisbay Lake
    enjoying the warmth of the day.
    By Saturday the temperatures had fallen to minus three - hot stove weather.


    What I looked like in the dark - lots of lighting and
    wholesome heat to keep me warm.

    My Buddy had a better camera and took the pictures.

    Wow that's a big swing in temperature. How'd your new stove do?

    -----> On the Tuesday afternoon it was 31 [87.8 American] and by Friday evening it was -3 [26.6 American]. Ideal test weather.
    First I tried regular wood and it roared up to 40 [104]. That's a bit much - so I reduced the feed and it was a lot better. I would have liked to try hard wood but there wasn't any. The soft wood burns far to fast. So then I tried pressed logs - the four hour duration. I chopped them into two and surprising enough the half log burned approximately two and a half hours. The burn was a lot more even and the temperature hung around the 22 - 26 degree mark which is just fine. I think the hard wood do very well too. I liked the unit.

    I was especially concerned with the numerous videos I watched and consumers reports that I read. I didn't experience any of the problems sited. I have an idea that some of the complainers may have had unrealistic expectations. AND this unit cost me $75.00 and change. A far cry from the pricey stoves that I saw advertised in other places. :)
