    Not surprised a penn state fan used the word “boys” in his post.

    I stacked the firewood off the ground and in a way that will allow as much air as possible to circulate around the logs before we leave for camping.

    You should point a fan at the pile of wood.

    Again we made a late decision to go camping. I wish I had access to tons of seasoned wood that was cut years ago and stored in a dry environment but this is not my reality. This is the wood I had access to so I went out and I got it. And it’s going to burn with the flame from my bow drill.

    Do they not sell bundles of firewood at gas stations and convenient stores for tourists/kids going camping in Texas? That’d be a better option than using unseasoned wood if you don’t have any friends with any.

    that's using modern technology though. you should build a primitive beehive kiln in your backyard to season the wood.
    CHARCOAL FOR DAYS. (Plus, then you'd be able to make crude bronze tools and leave the stone age behind you). :twocents: HTH

    They do sell firewood in Texas but I didn’t get rich giving my money away for something I could get for free elsewhere with a little hard work and an echo chain saw.

    Shit will burn just fine.

    You ever seen a forest fire? All those trees manage to burn even though they haven’t been felled and seasoned. Imagine that.

    lechnerd you need to start studying this man. He was a contestant on Alone and made the forest his bitch so much that he tapped out because it was too boring.





    You need to make a rack and put it above a fire to dry that shit out like my boy Mike.

    lol, thanks. I've been spending the past 15 minutes looking for those videos and ended up getting distracted and falling a wikipedia hole, happening upon an article about backyard furnaces during the "Great Leap Forward" in 1950's China.

    As you can see, the bigger trees don’t burn down, they just get charred on the outside

    I don’t need to study any videos. This thread is about me teaching not me learning.

    Also I don’t need to make a rack and put my wood above the fire to dry it out. It would defeat the primitive process of my plan. Start a fire to help me later start a fire. Makes no sense. Might as flick my bic like that asshole on p.1

    If you wanted to be true to the primitive nature of the fire you could set up a fan out of pulleys and hand made rope to blow air onto the pile.

    Oh my bad I forgot you’re gonna dry out the wood in your primitive two car garage.

    Listen ideally I would gather wood in the forest but I can’t. Lost Maples State Park doesn’t allow it. So I have to collect it in advance and bring it. I don’t want anyone stealing my firewood so I’m storing it indoors.

    Trust me if I went down in a plane in Siberia this exercise would go down a lot differently.

    He does these little psychopath things in there like trying to feed a dog bone to a stuffed dog or grabbing a cucumber out of a set light like that's naturally supposed to be where cucumbers are kept.

    Thanks I’ve got more details at the bottom of this post.

    Not sure why everyone keeps saying I have a 2 car garage. I have a 3 car garage but I converted the 3rd space to a work area.

    Lech is staying at a “campsite” with water and electricity lol. You don’t even hike to it, it has back in RV parking.

    Also what kind of neighborhood do you live where people steal your firewood?

    So you guys have fire-proof wood in Alaska? That’s cool. Our wood in Texas is regular, that meaning it burns under a flame.
