Drag and Burn...


Ah, the annual drag and burn celebration. It's simple. The wonderful Papa Huber, aka Prairie Dawg, owns some property in NY fondly known as "the land". (warning, run on sentence ahead - proceed with caution) For the past I don't know how many years now his son, my best man, Joshy, has invited friends from far and wide to come spend a special summer weekend at the land. The goal...drag as many dead trees, branches, and other brush into a huge pile or piles and burn them. Thus the name, drag and burn. Yeah see, makes sense now!


Each year a different area of the land is designated for the dragging and this ultimately helps with the health of the woods. So basically do some manual labor to help out a place that you enjoy though out the summer, and in exchange you get to hang out with good people and enjoy in the celebration at night. Oh and did I mention that Joshy treats you like kings and queens when it comes to food and drink for the whole event? True, it is customary to bring a dish to pass, but a big pat on the back to Josh for organizing the event every year and going over the top with food and refreshments. Nicole and I are looking forward to seeing everyone and pitching in next month for this years Drag and Burn.

Ladies and gentlemen, your host.

Sounds cool. To bad we aren't close enough to see the whole thing.
