Food Storage for "Dummies" (who are SMART enough read this!)
52 weeks of bulk foods to prepare for 1 year of no food (emergency prep). Don't think I'd trust those water containers for long term storage. Have had 2 crack open, one in my husband's truck and one in my van!
Sawdust Stove: Handmade barrel stove provides 8 hours of heating and cooking with one load of sawdust — smokeless and unattended. All gases go up the chimney. He heats over 1000 ft2 of uninsulated building. The basic idea can be scaled up to industrial sized heaters and dryers or scaled down for cooking and camping. Other materials such as rice hulls can be used instead of sawdust. could be combined with mass heating system for a great low cost winter heating system
