Stuck in South Dakota | Staying Warm With a Wood Stove

  • Published on Oct 19, 2018
  • We’ve found ourselves stuck in South Dakota in our school bus conversion. We have been resolving some legal issues with our car title/tag and will be here for 4-6 weeks while we play the waiting game. In the meantime, we’ve dealt with below freezing temps and are using our tiny wood burning stove and a few other tricks to stay warm. The sun has finally come out and we are getting to experience the beauty that is the Black Hills! Bus life has proven to be a difficult transition for us but we are trying to stay positive and get out and explore! That is what this adventure is all about. Thanks for watching!

      Hi Jason. South Dakota is our domicile state. This is where our physical address is and allows us to legally have drivers licenses and receive mail. You don’t have to do this for every state you go to. This is just where our “home base” is for our travels.

    you might want to add a seperation in the front of the bus, if only another reflective+wool curtain - whats the use of putting spray foam in the back, when you have a drafty bus door in the front?

    You did not make the comment but you need to remember heat rises and cold falls. The outside of the bus needs to have a little covering to keep the wind from drawing any heat from it. The heater is mounted up in the air so you need to get your heat blowing towards the floor so it heats the floor also. You can have 81 degrees at chest height but freeze water at the floor. If you have multiple cold days and can open the area around the water tanks and blow warmer air in there you can help it. If the water tank is sitting right on the metal floor and the wind blows under your bus it will pull all the heat from the metal below and the tank will freeze. Great video telling about the problems some people will not, we all have them and learn from them.

    I am not seeing a damper on the stove pipe. So If you got one of those you can stoke the stove up at night and with the damper you should be able to get a 10 to 12-hour burn. Also in the stoking, if you have hardwood like oak or maple, As for a source of hardwood look for a shop that makes furniture and you should be able to get a couple of five-gallon buckets of hardwood for a few bucks to supplement the soft wood.

    Some hard wood firewood will help on those cold nights, it will burn longer so you dont have to get up ti feed the fire as often.
    Maples, oaks, ask, hickory etc. Pines, firs, cedars will burn quick and be gone in the morning. And make sure its seasoned!

    I am reminded that there are certain hardwoods that give off more BTUs. Do you know about this? Do you know what horse apples or hedge apples are? They have many names. Those big green, really rough skinned, sticky, good-for-nothing fruits that'll knock you out if they bonk your head?
    If the trees are growing wild and unhindered they can get really tall, such as in Kansas near a Lake called Kingman. Or in their native areas in OK & TX. Anyway, they're all over the place because ranchers used to use them to plant them exclusively as windbreaks for farmland and to create a live corral for their animals. Because of the many seeds that are inside them they can be planted very close together and with dedicated pruning they can grow into a hedge that is " horse tall, bull stout and hog tight", so there's that, and the best bows are made from the wood because of strength and grain. Oh yeah, it makes the best harps, too. And best for you, if you can identify that type of tree you can have some really long-burning logs that put out very high BTUs. Go online and search and learn trees and B's.

    To help in feeding the stove through the night, you can use nature's alarm clock, which is drinking a really huge amount of water before bedtime... surely you will have to wake up in 3 or 4 hours to go and when you do, feed the stove with the largest but short, solid chunk of wood that you can fit in the stove and get to burn. I have heard.. well.. read that the biggest, most solid chunk of wood you can fit in there esp on nice glowing embers, maybe even a * 'pallet' of stix, should feed it at least 6 more hours and then of course if you start doing that (big chunk/blox) before you go to bed need for the alarm clock.
    *know what I mean? A square low stack of sticks with airflow, on embers in the center with big chunk sat on top. Embers start on the block before the pallet burns away, block burns all nite. Unless embers need fed and were too spread, they die & burned the pallet, block falls, doused the rest of embers. In which case, i may want to center the embers then stick the chunk o' wood in there where one corner burns and eats the rest thru the nite.
    I've seen used a half log burn slow &good 5 1/2 hrs.
    I've used 3/4 log with 1/4 split out to stack on embers as kindle and it burned about an hour longer. i stoked a small flame up, set the open part over it burnt along the split, it acted like the "long night self feeding camp fire" bcoz I shoved 1/4 splits in where I could. There has to be airflow as you know.

    As a retired school bus driver I can tell you that at times its almost impossible to keep a school bus warm even with a full load of kids your cold in winter and hotter than Hades in summer contrary to popular belief most bus companies do not invest in air conditioned buses except where required by law or specified in contract

    Woodstove Heat, = don't allow it to burn down Low, Then Over Fill It.
    It Wastes Fuel & lowers the Heat output.
    A small HOT Fire is good, The Temperature Gives a More Efficient Burn,
    Feed a Fire SMALL amounts but OFTEN. Keep the fire HOT.
    If Available Use Coal & Coal style Products Along with Wood / Logs ( Subject to the size of the fire. )
    2 lumps of Coal the size of a tennis ball or Golf ball ( approx ?)
    Then 2 Logs the size of a large BEER Can.
    For Small Medium Stoves, ( Large House Stoves ? Double this amount )
    2 coal, wait 20 / 30 mins? Then add 2 Logs,
    Then 2 Coal ,
    If the Burn Space is Large enough increase to 3 of each, then 4 of each.
    All SUBJECT to how much You regulate the Fresh air input into the fire. & Size of Fire Chamber.
    Or How Much Heat you want / need etc.
    GOOD Warm Fires are something VERY FEW Understand !!
    When it's almost OUT , They FILL it FULL = A very Cold Room / Space for 2 hours !!
    CHUCKING LOADS of Smoke out of the Chimney. = WASTED Fuel.

    ALSO :- Add more Bedding & Blankets etc.
    Cover the windows with insulation,
    Make & Cut a Thick Curtain to cut Off Unused areas of the Van or Bus on cold nights.

    If You have the Space & the Skills, Heat water from the Fire & pipe hot water around the Van / Bus.

    The Woodstove Can , in an evening Heat water to fill HOT Water Bottles To Place in Sleeping Bags , Or Bed.
    Everything MUST Cover at LEAST 2 Jobs in a camper Van.
    In the Morning You can Wash in the Water from the Hot Water Bottles.
    Or Save the water for the Following Night .

    I Hope this Helps Beginners, & Those not used to Cold Weather.
    Cheers Paul , England , UK.

    A couple of chunks of coal would likely work most of the night. I had a wood/coal stove a few years back and a good bed of wood coals with a couple of brick-sized coal pieces were usually still burning in the morning. You would want to use smaller pieces in the tiny stove. I got coal at a feed store back then. People use it to heat chicken houses I think.

    I use coal in mine to keep it going overnight,I was using wood but it takes up too much space and the only way you could keep it overnight is to use hardwood,expensive and not so common. I find a 25kg bag lasts me a week in the depths of winter running 24/7,in comparison that would probably be a small trailer load of wood for the same output.

    Should you come across a supply of hard coal presuming you have firebrick in the firebox after starting a fire with a bed of red wood coals then load her up with hard coal not exceeding the firebrick on the sides of the firebox load her up it won't put the fire out nor generate smoke but you will hear Kellogg's Rice Krispies Snap, crackle, and pop! From the fresh coal you put on her. Don't use soft coal, it's smoky and requires a flame at all times to reach the top of the coal bed unlike hard coal. With hard coal one load will last between 24-48 hours before it starts dying out. At the 24 hour point you can shake the grate to get the ashes out of the firebox then add fresh coal otherwise known as green coal. Green coal is coal that isn't burning. Add fresh coal up to the limit of the firebrick to continue the burn. Yes hard coal is a wee bit more expensive but when you feel the heat it will be worth it. The exhaust pipe draft should be wide open after you add the coal with the ash door vents open as well. After the fire begins to cook then you can close down the pipe damper and reduce the ash door vents by half or more. It is a learning skill to burn hard coal properly but once learned you will love it particularly the fact that it will burn overnight keeping you snug as a bug in a rug. Pardon BS!
    I learned when I was a teenager in a crossing guards Shack with a B&M Railroad number 105 pot belly stove burning soft coal. The railroad hadn't bought any coal since the steam locomotive era died in 1956 so when a local freight was delivering a hopper car of soft coal, still used in the early 60's for household heat they would stop at every crossing tenders shantys and fill the coal bunker for the winter 2 tons was normal and the railroad always paid the claim when the coal company filed a claim of so many short tons of coal delivered. The car held 50 tons. Finally in the early 70's they replaced the pot belly stoves with propane stoves and installed a 500 gallon tank. 5 years later all the crossing tenders shantys were replaced as they retired as they were mostly ex brakemen who lost fingers or a hand in switching accidents. They were then guaranteed a tenders job until they retired. The last one retired in 1986.

    As much as I enjoy women, I know for a fact that I could not live with one in that little of a space because women have a tendency to smell really bad at times. I can imagine in the summer that would be horrible. In an enviroment where water to wash is limited with a funky female, Oh hell no. I feel for the guys that take care of these women in that tiny space. So I just tell my females to find something else to do and I will go it alone. Then I would visit them when it is time.

    The great thing about the bus is the one that makes it the worst choice for heating in the Winter: That almost 360 degree window view! But it must be awesome being able to just turn your head and see outside rather than having to relocate yourself to a window on one of the sides of your RV Van or Box-truck RV, if you even have a window on the side you need to look out of. At least you are making an effort in staying warm by learning the art of 'wood-stoving'

  • David Jaeger

    Help with your wood stove as I heat my entire house with a cast iron parlor stove. The trick is when using a wood stove use dry well seasoned wood as no threat of creasote in the chimney...dry wood will not produce creasote. Creasote looks like black shiny corn can tap on your chimney and creasote will fall into the box and just sweep into a ask shovel..also to keep your wood stove burning all night you want to insert a full non split log in the far back of your stove. Full solid logs burn long time. Open your air inlet and close your damper half way to keep the heat in and the smoke out..

  • Dave C.
    Dave C. 2 months ago

    Not keeping that stove going isn't your fault. It is simply a small stove. The fuel will burn up and need to be fed every 3-5 hrs. If you want an all night burn, you need a bigger stove, or another source of heat.
    On a side that stove lugged down so it can't become mobile in an accident?
