    Check out the Peshtigo Fire. Most folks don't know about it cuz it happened the same time as the Chicago Fire. The Great Hinckley Fire (1894) killed 418 & burned 200,000 acres. The Peshtigo Fire (1871), killed at least 2500 people and burned 1.2 million acres. Deadliest fire in US history. Where I grew up, our dairy farm land was cleared of trees due to that fire.

    The Great Hinkley Fire happened in September of 1894. Burned at least 200,000 acres, including the town of Hinkley. Official death toll was 418, other sources put the death toll closer to 476. Interesting read, thanks Chet and Dougo.

Because in todays sophisticated technology and the safety aspect of chemical mixing it is imperative to have a broadband of knowledge so no one is in danger of harmful chemicals in the atmosphere and the same would apply to Erick (the big Swede) as well.

    My family does a lot of heavy equipment work like with hoes and dozers we do a lot of brushing what we do is step 1 take the trees down step 2 burn trees step 3 put the brush rake on the hoe then scrap all those sticks out and haul it away because it usually has way to much dirt with it and no matter how long u shake it some of it doesn’t come out and it very hrs to burn so 🤷‍♂️ that’s what we do just a suggestion oh and then after we brush it hit it with a heavy disc and we can plant right into it so 🤷‍♂️ like I said just a suggestion that’s just what we do 🤷‍♂️
