Lol yes but i'm getting old you know
Kick KICK I said kick lol. ?Yeah we had them 9banded all over in the Red River Valley !
Kickin, Lickin, it's all Leprosy...
Their all over the White river valley to. Probably the same herd of Armadillos traveling from up here to down there...
2:1. Diesel:gas. Soak some finer fuel up wind. Wait a few minutes. Soak it again and light it. That’s always worked for me if it was an iffy to burn pile. But like has been, said dirt won’t burn.
This pile was at most 12’ tall and about 1/4 acre in size.
That's what I'm talking about .
Looks larger than a .25 acre as that would be around 50x50', that looks almost a hundred long, but i can't see how deep, anyway.
An acre is 43,560 square feet or an area about 208' by 209'. A quarter acre is a little bigger than 100' by 100'.
I wish I could burn big piles like that but there are several air boards and fire districts than all seem to be the "lead" agency for any given parcel of land. (Virtually very business needs a permit from the air boards and periodic unannounced warrantless searches. If you refuse an air board inspection or request an appointment you can expect a SWAT team within minutes.) Fortunately for me Cal Fire is pretty easy to deal with. Same for the forest service.
Burned 3 more piles about like the one in the picture today. All burned well and we had an inch of rain two days ago.
Rarely ever do I get a permit to only burn piles. The piles are usually burned when the surrounding woods get burned which is usually every other year. What’s the most tough to get a permit for in this part of the world, Georgia, is a prescribed fire of more than 1,000 acres.
Your right, I knew it was around 208x208 .
I have some pretty big fires at the house for bon fire(15-25' tall), but don't often get to do large ones elsewhere so I like live vicariously .
