I was complaining it was too hot outside to do any work. I only opened my trailer to raid the cuboards for about a month now.

Tonite, I am under my bankie on the couch in front of the fire.

I gotta figure out how to get a fireplace in the Burro....

I was also having the air drag problem with my battery charging system, so I decided to put the air drag to work...

I was married to a smoke stack that broke lots of wind. I don't want that in my trailer!

There are little mini terracotta fireplaces that you put tea candles in.

I'll be danged if I can find one. They are one of those items you see everywhere.. until you want one!

gina, i want one too, but i remember somebody a year or two ago talking about warming up the inside of their trailer in the early morning. the guy used a pair of terracotta flower pots over the gas burner. radiant heat, ahhhh!

i know you don't want to use gas, why not a candle doing the same thing?
