      Pfft... You can still go camping in that thing.
      With all the firewood you culled, you could go to Anchorage and back with no problem.

      Hope he didn't vanish with his stove one night, as he slept in a cozy van.

      He had a “fire place” in his van. It was not wood burning though.

      Ahh, the truth comes out.
      Fake electric one? Or propane fired?

      Cool is one thing, venting it would be hard (100% removal of carbon monoxide), never mind attracting attention to the "smoking van".

      Found a local shop in Panama City, that is thinking $ 6,500 cash. Not to fix it like new, but useable. A voiding the insurance company didn't cross my mind. Just goes to prove, the only thing cheep in this operation is me.
