Drove to Woodstock, IL today to attend a workshop on controlled, prescriptive prairie burns. Learned about back fires, head fires, burning conditions, protocol, equipment. We were supposed to participate in a burn after lunch, but the winds were too gusty.
So I have the basic idea of how to work on a burn. I know how to be a fire-slinger, water-person, flapper.
Not as exciting as you would think.
