I would like to put this post in the archives, but I will only do it if y'all who have photobucket pics, edit your posts removing the photobucket pics and replace them with the pics straight from your puter.

The photobucket pics tend to go away over time...

I heard the same about the ant hill dirt and there being wax in their. I would like to know the answer to that also.
Now if I were to make some of this wax dirt and fill a tote up with it, wouldnt the bottom dirt get damp and wet?

Nice to have the sun but I have to use a water jacketed system plus 212 deg wont burn the dirt or wax just keep on a simmer and in about 1 hour I have made 10 gallons of waxed dirt, I also wax the traps the same way wax never burns plus when I am done I can stick the hose in the jacketed drum and cool down the wax in about 15 mins.

I should of done this in July, doesn't look like we're going to be much above 80 for the next ten days. I may have to supply some artifical heat now.

When I was about 30, I trapped in Oklahoma.
We,(the guy I trapped with) took a large piece of stainless metal sheet, set some blocks under it and built a fire to 'dry out' shale we were using as a trap covering...
Worked like a charm !
