Is that the "Mt Ashmore" resort entrance? Like Nantucket, the highest point of land is Mt Trashmore! Was that a spy drone photo smitty?

Yes - the EPA has been surveilling the compound heavily. The heat signature from this pile caught their attention ... :woot:

I knew the drone grid was based on your location! The camera is OK, but when the the missiles come to visit, save the cats, wife, and anything you can carry. Leave the Blazer.....go west then north. You might as well take along your 'biographer'.....

That pile appears to be the amount of ash stuck in my Surdiac grates after about 5 hrs of burning. :roll:

Last year I put an ad on Craigslist for free ashes for anyone who may want them. I got a call from an older gentleman
that lives way out in the country. I empty a metal trash can into a tote bin, and when that is full I load it onto my Ford Ranger
and take it to the guys house. Nice drive. :)
I will use it at times in my driveway when it needs it, but last year there was hardly any snow to contend with anyway. :P

Got the same galv. dust can and still good for many years to come. To re-bag the ashes , just take the ash can outside, lay it on the side, place the bag beside the can and shovel the ash in the original bags. Cut the bag top full open.
If made ""intelligently"" , it's very easy and takes just a few minutes to do it.
For the ashes manipulation and dumping in the ash can, some simple tricks can make anthracite burning an easy and clean way to do it.
