No. no no! You have it all wrong. The Wildebeest & me share a Klippie & Eish (Local brandy to the non South Africans) while we watch the sunset. Ahh!

well since we are all in different areas ,yet share the same passions i think the best plan of action would be to use the materials we can get our hands on, and go at it..

when do u think u will start ur build?

we should document our progress and definitely post it up here when we start. hopefully mor ppl join. woop

The research will not stop I guess :-) although I have my plans and materials sort of covered other than the fire blanket. So I guess the insulation is still open ended. Vermiculite I reckon, but am also toying with the idea to use Sisalation (a sort of roof isolation foil) layers between oven & vermiculite.
I have the foundations cast. The oven is to be part of a rock walled lapa. I got rained out Saturday so I did not take pics. Will do so next time I am up there.
Is yours at home?

Sounds like it's all falling into place nicely for you. The setting sounds fantastic.

When do you plan to start the build?

Better be quick if you want it ready for the World Cup!!

Well if you now come to visit for the world cup, we can go out there one day and you can help me add a few bricks! As a rule I do not like Ausies (you beat us too often at sports :-)), but I'll see you as a wfo friend and not a Rugby player

Lets abuse the opportunity to invite all soccer fans to seriously consider joining us for the world cup. We are better hosts than soccer players :-) (We love Bafana Bafana but we are also realistic as to our chances)

Thanks for the offer but i will be shooting through JHB only fleetingly next month and will be gone by the time the cup happens so won't be able to build WFO, suip, eat wildebeest/biltong/wors or make a potjie with you.

Too bad, but have a dop for me anyway and get that WFO happening. Time for some action now

So noted. I consider myself duly crapped out and will immediately resign my day-job to go build/play! (Ah, we may dream hey :-))
