so its been a number of years since I built the Great and Mysterious Mt. Ubangee... So here is an update.

the structure of the volcano is holding up well. The plywood that sits exposed and in contact with the dirt at the rear of the structure has rotted some, but the internal structure is fine.

the firebox thermocoupler gave out a few years back. I replaced it but could never get it to act QUITE right... so after much fussing I id away with the fire feature. I was sad to do it and didnt want to spend the ~$1800 for a new fire box... So I went with a professional grade smoke machine and a color changing LED light. The smoke machine is DMX controllable (so I will be able to use it in the whole backyard tiki show I have planned). The smoke actually looks a little better than the fire in my mind. Its nice to be able to change the color of the eruption.

its pretty hard to get a good pic of the mountain... but here is a decent one..
