Cut out log stoves? at the Empire store....

Postby TomServo » Fri Oct 01, 2010 7:33 pm

I noticed these log carved out to make some sort if burner or stove. Was distracted by the cashier, ringing up my stuff, and naturally remembered them one month later. Anyone buy one? Or remember what they were calling them?

Iso's twat twitters at the thought of a snark window being opened somewhere on Eplaya, no matter how small or seemingly unrelated.

Step 1 - Humor her. It's all she has anymore.

Step 2 - Fuck it. Repeat step 1.

I already have the number, but try not getting into the practice of calling Gerlach or Empire, everytime I have a simple question...I know a couple people in Empire and Gerlach who attend, but I know for a fact, they use burn barrels.

So if anyone bought one of these fucking logs....tell me about it!

Figure out what your talking about before you post you snarky fuck.

@ISO, you're fucking funny! Great googling for rocket stove! FREE if you wanna...try.

@Tomservo The exact same stoves sell at my pals dad's store, I've seen them burning bright but didn't watch them burn to ashes.
I was told they burn up, a one shot deal...good heaters at tourists/local campgrounds.

Maybe you'd be able to fry some bacon and eggs in a giant pan but after that, The End.

Rocket stove or similar for space saving and it's reuseable! This is a great idea!

Cool, thanx! Figured they wouldn't last long, but was intrigued. I may try one out this July. Expenive kindling, but they look like fun to burn.

This is the eplaya. Snark is one part of what makes this place special enough to keep sucking us back in day after day, year after year. And the snark level has already been toned waaaaaay down from what it used to be. If the current level is still too much for anyone might I suggest some other fabulous online activities...like this place!

As far as this super log stove idea....talk about a moop mess. But for going on float trips...hmmm! Interesting idea.

The log stove idea isn't for burning man....and maybe not for 4th of Juplaya, but I first saw them in Empire. So, here we are. They looked cool, even if they are sngle use, but I wanted to know that....and perhaps a pic?

Snark is fun, duh...

MOOP mess, yes it would be, however maybe using one would be a nice camp fire pit starter.
nts ~need fire pit, firewood~ I drive a truck, just my luck! Got Room? yup

If memory serves correct, these ingenious ready to light logs are handmade in the USA by chain saw.

When someone gets my curiosity up Google gets blasted...tonight is no exception. Is this what you're thinking of?

http://www.stumpstove.com/

Pricing seems to be reasonable and in line with something a general store like the one in Empire would consider carrying.

yup, that's it.

my pals just burned their's into ahses as far as I recall.

I stand corrected, they can be used a few times as a stove or camp fire.

From what I witnessed they're still too MOOPY for me unless I had a fire pit, or some such platform like a big hub cap on cinder blocks etc????...what an unsightly hassle.

I think "it's good for lighting a camp fire pit in a classy way" this is about what I'd use this for.

I like the twig fueled rocket stove suggestion the most. Talk about some great gifts...hahaha...mini camp fires...for that matter the cut log stoves would also be hot gifts for campmates or neighbors. (still need a platform to burn cut logs)

These cut logs and the rocket stove were probably invented by a burner or future burner...hahaha...very clever designs! nts~collect twigs~ for FREE design of Rocket Stove...looks like this one can be placed on top of a $2.00 cinder block on the playa for a burn scar platform in camp.

For that matter, maybe a $2.00 flat stepping stone could be used on a table top for the rocket stove....sweet! Smoke and Dust...mmm mmmm good! grrr...
(I'm totally considering the tiny back pack stove is clean and handy and worth the few extra $'s for that "I want some right now" morning coffee!)

Iso's link sent me all over the place looking at new camping gear and considering once again the potential of making something myself. And while I saw some great ideas....like the stuff going on at Aprovecho Research Center in Oregon...
http://www.aprovecho.org/lab/index.php

I keep finding myself coming back to the one piece of camping gear I own that has never failed me. If I keep 3 cylinders of white gas around...or can get some unleaded gas my MSR camp stove always works. It's easy to setup, easy to use, and it even works at altitude which when you live above 7500 ft becomes quite important and many things don't work up here. For me it's all about those BTU's and getting it done. I'll keep looking at whatever new thing comes along but my MSR gear is hard to beat.

Back to the cut logs...they are kewl lookin'...the hillbilly art car camp would love them!

7,500 feet! You got me beat at 6,500...ain't it grand...average snow fall is 50 to 80 feet per winter. Thank MAN for the invention of the snow plow! (oh, yeah...shovel too :twisted: ) brrrrr...soon only chair lifts will bring we to the sun!

One of my favorite cylinder fire kewl thing was a handmade metal flower and stem that attached to the coleman cylinder and the flame coming from the middle of the flower could be turned up and down...made a nice safe fire piece.

Does anyone know where I can get some of those? (not lazy here, just busy and like to support other artists, I'll stick to my fire cocktail shows)

I apologize, Isotopia. I was looking for a fucking log. And jumped the gun with your reply. I'm donating a 10 gallon steel barrel to a friend, to make her own rocket stove.

Why, yes, if you mine the playa underneath the blue rooms. Careful, it's highly explosive.
