Let's light that bad boy up!!!

During the last few weeks, we mainly continued the forest work: there are still so many trees fallen by the storm that need to be taken care of...
Bengt is playing the mechanic saw most of the time, we have been using the "magic wire machin" to pull the logs that are deep down in the forest where neither horses nor the tractor can go so that we can pick them up with the horses and bring them home!
The saw mill has been working a lot and many planks have been made.


Two major events also happened last weekend!!!
First, Jolinda has taken one big step forward with her training and she has pulled her first log stick :)
She was very good and it was almost as exciting for her than for us.


The second project was The Rocket Stove:
Maria has been learning a lot about these very efficient stoves and their different possible uses.
We were then ready to start practical trials and we built some rocket stoves with the aim to be able to boil tea outside.
We started by improving the 0.01 version built a few days before and managed to have it working!
We made Rocket Stove version 0.02 that worked quite well too.


A contest was then started beetween the two teams to see who could get hot tea first.
We can admire the homeless style of the German-French team.


Once everybody agreed on the winners (even if some were cheating...),
we started to build the last, but not least, stove: MISS ROCKY


After that, Maria hosted a meeting at home for a study circle about Rocket Stoves...
(To know more about rocket stoves, you may go and have a look on Maria's facebook page.

Finally, let's applaud Bengt & Maria who are learning French very fast because right now 5 out of 8 woofers are French!
