These Rocket Stoves are not restricted to just camping, as they are handy to have in your backyard for cooking marshmallows & hot dogs or just some backyard fun.
All it takes is a single 14 inch wide log, a drill (battery powered drill if you are making it out in the woods), and a 1-inch drill bit . You can make several rocket stoves, which will burn in any weather condition…summer or winter. Each one can be used over & over until it finally burns out from within. There’s no mess, as the leftover stump can be used as fuel for the campfire that night or can be left to burn itself out into non-existance.
Howdy. I've been hiking most of my life. I spent my young boyhood hiking up and down the mountains in Hell's Canyon, bordering Oregon & Idaho with my father. He taught me important wilderness skills that I have passed on to my own sons. Since growing up in Idaho and hiking all over the Sawtooth and Selway wilderness areas, I have since hiked in the Andes and several trips diving and hiking in Antarctica, including the "Footsteps of Shackleton" expedition. I was also active in National Ski Patrol for 15 years, including Avalanche control and rescue. Since then I have become a Doctor of Trauma & Orthopaedics at Oxford England with an interest in Expedition Medicine.
My son, Jeremy is now the main hiker in the family with weekend hikes throughout the summer and will share his adventures.
