    driving over ice, brrrrrr.
    never did like it, talk about trusting (especially with melt lying around on top).
    my first job out of town, shiney 18yr old (in alberta) was for a seismic drilling outfit.
    catch a bus north and wait
    guy (old dude (like me now lol)) rolls up in ford 250 4x4.
    head down the road, dodging locals in dog sleds, get to point x, turn left and on to the McKenzie R.

    Ha, first time I drove on ice was, March 99, crossing the Mckenzie, on the way to Yellowknife, was following a fuel truck, but the noise,creaking and groaning, of the ice had me nervous,

    @Dundee. I think I've just been talking to your mate while waiting for his man to finish milking. The fire had slipped my mind until just now. He's been on the place for 10 yrs. Was share milking until a couple of yrs ago, then went back contract milking on same place.
    He said he'd come down from up north, and the farm was only a couple of km from the fire. His kids have just left home by the sound of it.

    I dont understand how this happens all the time, legally your boat must be strapped down not just held by the winch rope or you are up for a insecure load ticket.

    Probably counting on sealed wheel-bearings that have fukt out and welded- up due to misplaced trust in the seals and no checks or fresh grease.
    I used to have a handle on Life - but it broke.

    It was around 3-5km from a boat ramp
    I reckon they have deove the boat on the trailer and forgot to tie anything on.
    Even if it was just held by the winch rope and you forgot everything else. It still shouldnt fall off

    Yep probably.....they put the flag on tho by the looks.
    It is surprising how many boats you see only held to the trailer by the winch rope and maybe a safety chain with nothing tieing the boat to the trailer tho.

    Our winch rope on a 2 year old Surtees has broken at least half a dozen times, and a Surtees weighs a fraction of a Haines Hunter. But it's always strapped down plus a chain/d shackle

    Had this a while back.
    Little rain and a little wind and because all the trees are planted full grown they only have a very shallow root system.

    There was actually a smaller tree that fell on a young girl and put her in a coma for a couple months.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    not mine, I have seen a 6. something surtees on the ramp here at Nelson off the trailer but still attached to the winch with car and trailer further up the ramp. No safety chain and rachet failure on winch. Looked nasty really felt for the guy who owned it. No one needs that
    The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation................................but I'm not one of them
