Enjoyed reading your instructable!!! You should check out a post-apocalyptic reality show the Discovery Channel aired in 2009, called "The Colony". They build a couple wood gasification systems and I believe hooked it to a small motor attached to car alternator. They also built a number of other awesome projects that really inspire any maker!Not sure if there is a place online to watch it all, but I'm sure you can find some photos and Wikipedia has a lot of details on it. BTW, where are you located? (What state?)

Awesome!!! Glad to see someone is working on it! Exactly what I envisioned - particularly the bike model. While this wouldn't work in the desert, it could be amazing somewhere humid!
My brain instantly started wondering, looking at this design, what would it take to convert this to an outdoor solar powered water collector? (Or for that matter, build it so that it will pull distilled water.)1) Build into a large mouth funnel. Likely add a "collar" to the top of the funnel. Cut vent holes all the way around the funnel above the area where the cool-sync will drip.2) Add an "air filter" cloth around the vent slots. 3) Add a 12v solar panel lead and a battery charging circuit.4) Put the funnel in a clean milk jug. Glass milk jug will have more weight. Thoughts?
I think should be entered into the new Darwin Award category. If anyone is even thinking this is useful in their life, go and buy on Amazon the Remington RM1425 Limb N Trim 8 Amp 14- Inch Electric Chainsaw. It's much cheaper than a trip to the hospital.
There is a reason people are not suppose to be making their own explosives, bombs, guns, etc, at home. Add to the list, chainsaws!
Cool project. Basics are nice to see well executed! :)
