And this stuff is imported from Latvia whilst those poor buggers sit around a burning tallow pot trying to keep warm.
Fair bit of madness there, not for this Black Duck. Shocked

More the reason to try one if it helps there economy.

Don't think the next cog will need one now looking at the stockpile going there   Shocked

I know you can make your own, but I like the cleanliness of these. Could even tuck them under the blankets in the van.

Is that $9.90 a log????


A bag of firewood at Somerset over Easter was $15.

Its basically a Swedish Candle.
Easy to make yourself.
Be happy to make a thousand for Bunnings at $5 a hit.
Won't be kiln dried though.

I get my wood from the local timber yard that makes wood stakes for concrete foot paths

take several plastic bags full each trip , which fit easy into spaces in the back of the car , and supplement with what I can pick

they cut a point on one end which makes a pyramid that when stacked in a fire has a lot of air space

I start the fire using my own fire starter made from dry tea bags and fire starter gel from bunnings

works well in the choofer

I must be very primitive compared to you blokes. Undecided

Chainsaw to cut stringy and box etc., an old axe for gidgee, beefwood and mulga. (that stuff destroys cutting chains) Cool

Never worry about kindling, a good splash of diesel, match and away Smiley
