Thanks to everyone for posting!

Rbinhood, how long of a burn time are you getting out of yours if you dont mind me asking?

My burn time definition= heat output, and still having enough coals to get more wood burning...

With good hardwood, 6-8 hours. With softwood, 4-6 hours, possibly more if I really stuff it full and burn larger diameter logs.

Really?? I can usually get hardwood where I am. That is very interesting. Wow. Even four hours with hardwood seems great. That is a heck of a burn time.

Looks like the large will do what I want for sure

I mean, that means for one two, or three people my hot tent setup will be thirty pounds, with a stove I can feasibly burn all night, which I really would like to do. Not too shabby really

I live in he Yukon, I have at the small stove from Snowtrekker (kni-co) and I can get an ease 3hrs burn in it, I can even stretch it to 4 if the weather is mild and I turn it down. I would love to have a bigger stove but the same weight....

Well, I just called and ordered it. There was a thread on here a while back about Don, and someone mentioned that he seemed short of patience. Well, quit the opposite for me. My first call last week was to ask questions, ended up taking about 45 mins talking about stoves, sizes, his theory on winter camping, etc.

Now, I call to order one, and I end up talking to him for about an hour about everything from the US petrodollar, to politics, to African nomads,  the media, and the current state of the world!

Really cool guy to talk to, and he has an excellent outlook on life! And he claims the stove will in my posession before the end of the month!

That is great to hear!! And less than a month to have the stove in your possession, that is quite fast!! I guess it could be different if I would order one... Since I live in the boonies...

Wellll,

I ordered the stove quite a while ago now. I think it was early November.

Christmas is in seven days, and today I was told it would be shipped next week. I call once every week and a half to two weeks, and that is the same thing I am told. I am a patient guy, but if he was too busy, and could not have it shipped till late December, just tell me from the beginning! I still would have ordered it!

At this point I am just hoping to have it for February.

I hate when people tell you that they will have some thing ready a certain date and when that date arrive, nothing, but they never contacted you to tell you that the due date was gonna change. Bad customer service in my book.

Anyway, I hope you get it this winter....
Cheers

Thanks.

Getting the date wrong is one thing. Come January is a few days, the shipping date will have been missed my more than a month.

Hutch:

Call him and tell him you had a trip planned for the weekend of January 9-12 and you need the stove by then. Tell him that's more than a month past the date he said you would have it by. Tell him you made your plans based on what he told you. If he gets snotty, tell him you'll post negative reviews all over the forums dealing with Winter camping. You've been more than patient. I could see if he was sick, or some emergency came up, but I had the same issues when I ordered my stove. If the stoves weren't made so well, I'd suggest you call and cancel your order.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I called him today and was polite, as always. He apologized and acknowledged that he has told me dates and not delivered.

He is busy, and while that is really no excuse, everyone is human. Frustrating,  but what the hell.

I have learned my lesson. If I want something from him again, I will order it in April  ;D

If it is not shipped in a few weeks, then I may use your strategy rbinhood...

I think it goes better if when we order things we realize were supporting small business, a family, that its, whatever it is, is a quality product , and we'll be happy when we get it. Its frustrating when things don't work out according to plan which is why its a good idea to make plans when we get the item, not before.
