    12 Tons, bay-beee!!!


    March 17, 2020 | The first time I walked down the Natchez Trace, I was enchanted by the towering pine forests and palmetto sprinkled swampland. It almost seemed like two lost worlds colliding - vast, Jurassic forests that I could imagine dinosaurs roaming juxtaposed with swamps that somehow felt even more prehistoric. Even as we walked down the trail clearing corridor and access points, everything seemed somehow unchanged, eternal.

    The First Fire


    March 8, 2020 | Picture this: Bienville National Forest, in the sweet, sweet south, Mississippi. The weather: a low temperature, low humidity. A beautiful window to put some fire on the ground and burn the acres Crew 962 has desperately been waiting to ignite.
