Looking forward to it. I'm still a couple months out but cant start planning to early. The one thing that I wasn't able to do this past year because of a huge work load was mow my fire breaks. Im hoping that Mowing them in the spring will be ok. The one way I can see it working is if i am able to down to the valley after the snow is gone but the ground is still frozen. One side of the property is usually pretty boggy. It's always a timing issue.
My buddy was there in the Bobcat, however my son's sarcastic comment was definitely on point :-). Had the SxS loaded with a 100 gallon water tank and a hose sprayer. I had the backpack sprayer as well. The first field went smoothly because I could back the fire into the wind and downhill to get a big char line before going to the other side to light it. Got a little cocky on the second field. Ended up having some drift into the hardwoods at the swamp edge, but we were able to use the water to get control.Burn baby.
That’s bigger then I would attempt alone.
