If you’re in the market for the latest in rocket stoves–or even just a bit curious–you’ll want out check out this video.
Engineer775 of Practical Preppers assembles and tests the newest stove version built by Gabriel Apostol. If you’ve never heard of him, he’s been designing and perfecting the rocket stove concept for several years. His company, Bristol Rocket, manufactures this 2016 model.
With the latest design improvements, both Engineer775 and Apostol believe this to be one of the best rocket stoves available. Here’s why:
The folks at Survival Summit released their latest DVD today (1/5/2016). Titled “Survival Escape And Evasion”, it’s an hour and forty minute training course on how to get yourself out of captive situations … and avoid them altogether.

Saying the time for compromise is over, The Patriot Nurse let’s loose on the folks who seek the fruits of your labor using the State as their collection agent.
Some of her most indignant insights include:
The simple notion of using a slow-moving, falling weight to power things has been around for centuries. Think big clocks in 16th century cathedrals.
So when I saw the principle applied to an LED lamp, my first thoughts were about lighting for either off grid emergencies or off grid emergencies or lifestyles.
Using 26 pounds hung six feet above ground, the GravityLight provides 20 minutes of light. Over and over and over again. In the words of the design team:
Once GravityLight is installed and a 12kg weight – a bag of rocks or sand – attached, it’s ready to go, anytime.
The weight is lifted by pulling down on a bead cord. On release, the weight falls very slowly, transforming potential energy into kinetic energy as it powers a drive sprocket and polymer gear train.
This generates just under a tenth of a watt, to power an onboard LED and ancillary devices.
Once the weighted bag reaches the floor, which depends on how high it was installed, it is simply lifted to repeat the process.
