And depending on the amount of water that's been impounded, he might need to get the Corps of Engineers involved to see if there are any downstream flooding issues to worry about.
You sir, are no fun.

So, how far is this beaver dam that you speak of away from houses and things with windows that will break under large percussion waves?


There is nothing that can be harmed within a long ways!!!

The planned detonation is for the weekend after Mother's Day!

The location is between Calhoun and Fairmount, GA which is about an hour south of Chattanooga.

There will be booze, guns and doG knows what else.

Come one, come all!

I've tried Tannerite before and failed. And have cleared out several dams with saws and or with tractors and winches. Like has been said you need to trap them out first while you know were they are at or you will find a new one just up or down stream the next day. Sounds like fun though.

Is this going to be a new version of the Screaming Beaver rally ?

OK; weekend after Mother's Day is out!
That's Rick's Rendezvous so it will be the following weekend.

I'm thinking inmate attendance is going to be mandatory!

As much as I enjoy things that go from very small, to very large, very fast, I am afraid there's just no way I'll be able to attend. I here-by request highspeed video of the Big Bang, and pictures, lots and lots of pictures. Some fresh beaver is unneccessary. I live in Oregon, we know beaver here.......

There was a time a million years ago when I had just gotten out of college and was a high school math teacher. Long story short, during my very first in-service day ever, my trusted mentors decided that my first-ever in-service day would be best spent by me learning the value of putting a couple layers of owens-corning insulation up under their hunting camp.

So in-service day comes along, we sign in, then split (don't worry everybody does it). By 8:15am we are at the beer-store, and it has been decided (2-1 vote) that I would have the honor of being the driver. We also took a vote, and it was decided 2-1 that we would take my truck.

Fast-forward an hour and a lot of beer (we had plenty) we are heading up a logging road toward camp. "Fuck me running" the road has been completely washed out but there is a beaver dam across where it used to be. Since we are in my truck, we decide that it will hold (2-1 vote). We creep across. It holds, mostly, but requires an enthusiastic woo-hoo and much throttle to gain the far bank.

At camp, we drink the rest of the beer, drop the insulation off on the porch, then decide to make sure that the whisky at camp has not gone bad. No actual installation was performed that day, as far as I know.

Apparently the whisky was, in fact, bad because the rest of the story is nowhere in my memory. However, I am told that on the way back through I saw the gap in the road, and said 'hang on, y'old fucks'.

We (reportedly) hit the gap in the road where the road and the beaver dam used to be at about 40 miles an hour, and wound up somewhere near the road-bed on the other side of it. I am told that it was like "a fucking ford-powered nuclear fucking bomb, visited upon the fucking beavers."

At that point it was reportedly decided (2-1 vote) that I had done enough driving for one day.

I woke up in my truck the next morning, in my driveway, late for work.

Anyway, if you don't want to risk using explosives, I highly recommend using math teachers. Just make sure you have a majority, in case anything comes to a vote.
