Re: kerosene stoves.. WHAT HAPPENED!
I was considering kerosene so I looked at this thread,
and it made me realize that really wood is the best way to go.
I love wood, have ever since I was little, and it's abundant, plentiful and cheap,
can also make pottery or at least earthenware in a wood fire, cups, bowls, spoons :-).
considering that so many of the wood stoves are so expensive, I might make my own out of ferrocement, or maybe try a rocket stove, though definitely an efficient design.
Also wood is safe, 0 explosion hazard (though may spit embers), can be doused with water.
it makes dry heat, so is great for heating in the winter.
it smells great, looks wonderful, renewable resource.
Also the ash has myrid uses, from making soap, to supplementing calcium and potassium.
