Tank on the ground.



More dirt.









The fuel tank is full. 2 inch ratchet strap was used to slide it out from under the bus.







Other end is attached to the skid under my shed.

Owch.

It's now raining here. Good weather is just around the corner.

Hang in there my fellow Canadian. We made it through another winter.

Now it's busy season. Time to make money, work on our buses, go camping, ect.

Thx for watching.

Fuel tank slid most the way out from under the bus.



A side pic showing the pile of dirt still on top of the tank.





Two more big chunks of steel to remove from under the bus. That means cutting the heads off 40 more 5/8th bolts. These bolts are so rusty, the head just spins and will not tighten, or loosen.

More on the fuel tank later.

Now there was some misunderstanding on the incineration of human waste inside my stove. The pics that follow are of a small fire. Larger fires generate much much more heat. These pics will show the unreal heat of a small Coal fire, this is not wood.

I eat a ton of canned fish. It's the best form of easy to digest protean. To avoid the smell of the cans in the garbage, I burn them out.

This is what the can looks like new.





In a small two fist size fire with the flash off.



Pile of cans laying on the floor cooling waiting to be put in a bag.



Longer than 10 min in the fire and this happens. It did not melt, it vaporized the metal.







If a coal fire can vaporize a steel can in 10 min, incinerating human waste can be done with no smell. Most times the bag of human waste is gone in less than 5 min.

I use a solar walkway light as a night light in my shed. I hang the light outside when I go to work, and take it in every night. It makes enough light to navigate the shed at night without blinding me with a bright light.



I hang everything. Things like clothes and boots get hung near the stove to dry. This is a big part of staying healthy living under these conditions.



My wife's winter boots hanging to dry.



My cast iron pans. Even the red ones are cast iron. Only the two rear pans on the right are stainless steel.
