Not Just Colorado Farmers

I can sure remember Dad getting a call, running outside to his tractor, hooking up to the offset disk, and roading off to help with making a fireline.

That is just something you do.

Yep. In rural communities, EVERYBODY pulls together.

Did you see the original video.

The one operator did not quite seem to have the concept down. But still a good job. I've seen much the same thing done with a county road grader on grazing land!

He was doing it correctly - getting in as close as possible and making some room when the fires flared!

Thanks, Chas!

I was thinking of the rear operator, the one driving through the black. Glad you enjoyed the video.

Oughta been more clear - I was talking about the dual wheeled four wheel drive actually working up a fire line.

Gotta wonder what the guy in the burned out area thought he was accomplishing. Since there was no longer much in the way of ground cover, working that up made no sense at all.
