I KNEW IT
not really too keen on how you have that firewood stacked. y'all A&M boys never learn, do ya?
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.
This is a good idea.
Motherfucker forgot about convection
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.
In Lechnerd's neighborhood I assume the only trees are some Disney ones planted next to some fake ass lagoon
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). 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.
NOW you’re being helpful!
Time is money Lech, don’t waste it waiting for wet wood to burn shitty.
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.
There’s a whole YouTube channel with 10M subscribers that does all this shit. Hell, we’ve had a thread on it before.
Love this silent movie motherfucker
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.
Somehow it took me down rabbit hole to a guy who made the world's sharpest cardboard knife.
I’ve been in the middle of a forest fire
As you can see, the bigger trees don’t burn down, they just get charred on the outside
I'm going to mark this down as my mid-thread Most Valuable Post.
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
I thought the same thing about coolers that have to be pre chilled but I changed my mind
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.
I’ll sit back and let the teacher teach.
One: Cow water pitcher
Two: What kind of insane person makes a lethal weapon out of cardboard? This person will kill a person.
Three: He or she ate cutting board wax
Four: This person ranks how sharp you can make knives out of random materials
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.
What kind of a shitty gated neighborhood are you living in? Were you and the poors around you too broke to pay the security guard this month or something?
River Rock Ranch.
Did this as a middle school project. Had to teach everyone in the class how to do something. Fire alarms went off during my presentation.
Did you run cutting down a tree for firewood past the HOA?
I didn’t cut the trees down in my neighborhood. As mentioned earlier it was on a hill on my sister and brother-in-law’s property.
Ah I missed that.
When will you make fire?
Now that would be something to watch.
(Instead of chainsaw Willy and his garage cured wood heads to the park with a truckload of gear and cell phone)
only a matter of time before he makes a "sharpest human femur bone" video.
Welp didn’t wake up thinking about watching YouTube videos of a Japanese guy making knives out of dog treats and plastic wrap, but here we are.
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.
That aluminum foil knife looks like a legit kitchen knife.
When I go camping. About a week from now.
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.
Never seen black spruce on permafrost?
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.
Yeah this dude is awesome. I like trying to figure out what hes doing like midway through the videos.
