The bike too, don't forget about all that heat Connie puts out.    ;)
He's got the new and improved 2010 model. They don't get hot, or so I hear.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

It only puts out heat when it's hot outside, not when it's cold.  When it's cold, it's a frigid beasty indeed.

Boy do you have that right!

I feel so low-tech.  I use a dual reflector gas heater mounted on top of a propane tank.  On the plus side, I've used it for heat during ice storms when the power is out.

I use a single but it works well. I tarp off a 14' x 12' area.

Don't you have to worry about CO when burning propane with the radiant heads?

No, the garage is hardly airtight.  I concerned myself about it once, but After using portable kerosene heaters for years in Japan, and having to use a propane heater like this for almost a week when an ice storm took out the power - we had it in the living room as it was the biggest room.  If it didn't get us then....

What did I do to deserve this life?  And how do I do it again?
