With our third TLUD test burn, we're confident we've mastered basic design, consruction and operation. We'll do a few more TLUD test burns to refine our equipment and operating procedures, and assemble components for a permanent, earth-sheltered TLUD with ceramic fiber, windows, ports, caps, taps, and other improvements.
Monday is my 62nd birthday, so we'll celebrate with our first nightime burn. In evening, Kansas winds subside, so a burn is less difficult and dangerous. I'll get beautiful flame photos and videos, maybe a hot chimney glowing cherry red.
In the afternoon, we'll upgrade equipment, break up brush, and load the barrel for the evening burn. Then we'll have a birthday dinner at Blue Planet Cafe in downtown Topeka.
