    Power at the farm

    It works quite well, I do have a fairly large battery pack to run things when the gen is off. The cottage can be heated by burning wood or using air_to_air heat pump on mains power. The kitchen has a wood stove that also gives enough heat to minimize outside power down to about 0C. Originally...

    So much fruit

    The few sources I got also referred it as "graft". Curious. All say it is a rarity, good work identifying it even if with some time.

    D&D Ranger recent youtube video

    Looks very much like some hunting swords. Depending on where one is and the season I would think that sufficient. For me the "problem" is that I was brought up using an axe, had I been a Sami I would be using a big Leuku happily. I understand that some people have tried using Kukris and...

    Small spirit stove

    It is not solid, I have understood it is gelled alcohol. OK as such and I have used various gelled versions and probably keep using them.

    Small spirit stove

    Cowboy Coffee
