    Re: Need to move a few cases of 100+ year Old Dynamite. Any Ideas??

    Colo. Mike:
    The stuff really does burn!
    I have used it, many times, to heat up a cup of coffee !
    Almost as good as "C-4" !
    But! Old Dynamite is really deadly!
    Just! Picking it up/moving can cause the liquid nitro that has leaked out and settled on the bottom of the sticks,
    To BREAK!
    This causes a really nice LOUD and Destructive sound!
    IT BLOWS UP!

    Just had a thought, it came to me from a couple of posts and putting two and two together.... instead of tying a rope around it and taking off like a bat outta hell, maybe do the same thing but GENTLY move it as far as you can away from the target before it explodes? Of course try not to have anything in direct line with you that could become a projectile....

    No site is woth losing your life over. From what I can see you have two choices. The better one is contacting the state government and having them send a disposal team out to take care of it. If you really don't want to do that then buy or make some explosives of your own, very carefully lay them around the case of dynamite not allowing them to touch any of the dynamite or crystals directly, get a few thousand feet away for safety and detonate your explosives. They should set off the dynamite as well, thus removing your problem. If neither of those things are an option then you should just forget about that area.

    Just don't try to move it yourself, and don't try to work around it. In fact you might want to avoid touching it at all. Any shock might set them off. Then again it might not. But it isn't worth the risk. Do what you feel is best, but I would hate for you to die because you chose to keep this site a secret and try to move or dispose of the dynamite yourself.

    If you would like you can contact me at ascetic_rose@msn.com

    Well...sounds like you have one hell of a pickle there mike. I was a wrench in the army for 15 years so i never got to deal with explosives. I'm sure with some research an appropriate solution can be had. I work on an oil rig for weeks at a time in parachute colorado. They use explosives to perforate the wells after they are drilled and before the well can produce. I'll ask around and see what i can find out to help you out.

    If you have to ask all the questions you have posed it is about even odds you will kill yourself trying to handle it on your own. I have worked with and around the EOD guys in law enforcement, ARMY and National Guard, and they wouldn't touch the stuff. They'd blow it where it is. If we don't get another post from you we will all know why. Monty
