3/22 Next Cooking

Came home tonight and the bag on the front tree was almost to the top! I've got over 35 gallons out back to cook.

Started the fire by about 7:00PM. It's so muddy back there I can barely walk around. My boots are getting stuck about every step I take.

I cooked off about 13 gallons tonight and finished it up by about 2:00AM. Now I just have to cook off another half or whole gallon to get it complete.

I still have 30 gallons in the back waiting to go. I need to buy some firewood tomorrow.
