Risuralli is a Finnish outdoor event owned by the Finnish Wilderness Skills Association (Suomen Erätaito ry). When it was first established, the event was simply called “a meeting for hobo-stoves” and people were invited via social media to gather together to make food and just enjoy all kinds of wood burning stoves, mainly homemade hobo-stoves.
Soon a Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/risukeittimet/) was opened, and there the hobo-stove-mania organically grew and people started to build different kinds of hobo-stoves, post photos onto the group page and share and compare their experiences together. In less than a year the group has gathered nearly 600 members.
We are delighted to announce that “Risuralli”, the Hobo Stove Rally will form part of The Bushcraft Show 2015. Anyone with a wood-burning stove or hobo stove can demonstrate their stove. The diversity of the style of stoves is huge and the same stove can be used in multiple ways. People can learn new ideas from each other and the best result is that the manufacturers get ideas for their new products.
At The Bushcraft Show 2015, we aim to set a new World Record and we invite you to be a part of it. In collaboration with the Guinness World Records we aim to have the most number of hobo stoves and wood burning stoves burning at the same time and in the same place.
