>Not using B&Q Biofuel

Honestly the smell of that barney faggot purple liquid of cunt makes using alcohol stoves so unpleasant. The smell of burning biofuel, however... Now that's game. Burns damn clean too.

It’s as easy as starting a fire in the first place but it sounds like a jet engine. The seething is real when other people with me have to pack in fuel but they get the upper hand when it comes to overall comfort and convenience. It’s about the same size and weight as three of those MSR cans stacked on top of each other and will definitely cook food and boil water as long as you have a constant supply of sticks. Everyone keeps feeding them twigs but the real pro move is to start with twigs then use larger, denser pieces that will still fit underneath your cookware that you rest on top of it. Rangers like them too since it’s considered a contained fire on par with jetboils or other gas-driven stoves.
Also the batteries will degrade with use over time, and their warranty is ass so if you fancy yourself a handyman you can replace the 18650 cell inside of it and use a larger one, but I wouldn’t recommend going above 3800mAh. The primary reason for the battery is to run the fan so the fire can burn hotter with the additional airflow, and the ability to charge devices is a secondary aspect when it comes to the device’s design. I can take pics of the internals, but it’s literally just a Peltier thermoelectric device with probe that drives a PCB, which in turn regulates fan speed based upon a thermocouple taped to the OEM battery. If the device gets too hot it’ll either put the fan at full speed to cool the device internals or shut it off completely to avoid damaging the Li-Ion cell, because those totally love fire.
If you’re seriously considering one, evaluate how available fuel will be for either gas or sticks, and purchase accordingly. Get a used Campstove 2 if you can and replace the battery. The PCB charging circuit is soldered onto it, so you’ll have to bust them off or desolder it if you’re feeling confident, but a new cell should slip right into place. Just don’t reverse the polarity by accident.

I used three tin cans to build my first on. Find one that's the size of the burn chamber you want. Then get two more that are each slightly larger than the next. I did mine fast and dirty with a pair of pliers and a bar key and a can opener. But the second one i made i got a thrift store wine chiller and used a cordless drill on it. Took an old dolar store stainless pot and some grill skewers and made a stand off for it. The thing is bomb proof. The part about it where I thought I was pretty clever was i took two long fondue skewers and notched them in the middle. So when i slide them through the bottom they lock and make a noce wide and stable base.

>would I have stayed?
No. My direct supervisor/ boss was the president of the 400 person engineering company. I was a shareholder, department head, had developed over $2 million in revenue in 18 months, 2 years of backlog, grew the size of group by 60% and trying to hire more.
And I hated every minute of it.
What could they change? It wasn't them that was off, it was me. I felt like a caged chimpanzee, or a dog tied to a tree, attitude had long since deteriorated. Open the cage or cut the rope and what could I do with the pent up frustration and resentment from being obedient and playing the game for too long.
I was done.

What's your budget? Visiting an archery shop is always a good idea and the Samic Sage is a great recommendation like >>2235655 said. If you're buying online and don't want to spend much on a hobby you're not sure you'll like, don't be afraid to give cheap chinese bows like Topoint/Junxing a try. I've still got a 40# Topoint R2 that cost ~$70 on Aliexpress and have no complaints about it

ITT we ask and answer questions about trees and discuss forest management, fire, and similar shit.

I have a lot of birch growing on my property in this cluster arrangement. It's my understanding that birch produces shoots from the ground that become mature trees. Does this mean clusters like this are branches of the same tree? Can I cut three of four trees in a cluster like this and absolve myself of the feeling of murdering the tree? Will the remaining tree become independently large?

>>2234304
It depends a lot on the end use of the trees. If planning on hunting/recreation land, I would just leave it be unless it really bothered you. If there is a chance for timber harvest for monetary gain, you want one strong, straight tree. Trim any limbs that may shoot off the tree that you can reach from the ground, within reason of course.

>It depends a lot on the end use of the trees
I heat my house with the shit. I'm pretty sure there's enough beetle kill around that my great grandchildren will be harvesting that, but I'm thinking I should take at least one or two birch per season for when it gets extremely cold.

>>2234749
>birch don't tend to grow that large though
The previous owner of my land left some BIG birch stumps, I'm talking 2 feet across. I have several living trees of about that size. The big ones seem isolated though, whereas many of the others are clusters of 4-5 smaller trees maybe 6 inches thick. What I am basically asking is, can I take out all but one of these 6 inch trees and expect the remaining one to be 2 feet thick when I am old?

More like PTSD from the War. Read 'The Great War, Mallory, and the Conquest of Everest'. There's tons of characters like Wilson there who couldn't cope with normal life after the war ended. Hell, the 1921, 1922 & 1924 expeditions were full of veterans. Wilson wast just a tad more eccentric than the rest of that generation.

Good, maybe more urban scum will stay in their containment zones now. If you're so retarded that you don't realize that it is hot in August and that you need water to live then you're too retarded to be worth crying over.
