    Unfortunately those racing slicks (actually near new tyres) are clawing at thin air now

    Our other tractor, 4wd 80hp, wouldn't budge it last night. Will have to track the digger back out from the back of the farm and pull it out with that.
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    That reminds me of my mate on his Dog Rooter 400, and after I passed him thru a bog on my KTM 450. Haha

    I was always that guy when riding with my mates. They could ride better than I could walk. Had a chain come off in a big mud hole once cause I suck, and tried to run it in the wrong gear. 3 mates backed their bikes up to me in order to help, or so I thought.........I looked worse than the poor bugger in the above pic
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    The best thing on that day was getting the bugger back. He's always the first to shotgun a puddle or blap the throttle thru a bog right in front of you. Later that day he tried getting me back, lost it and slid through a fence

    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

    Just been having a dung out and came across some old photo's of mine. Here's one going back to Dec 1981.
    The Seismic survey ship I was working on hit an uncharted reef at 6 knots, water depth by memory went from 600 fathoms to nought in less than 100 meters. We were working in North East Sulawesi. Middle of nowhere.Name:  20140518_141820.jpg

    It was all class up till then, almost like a pace note error or just a plain old brain fart, no attitude on the car before that turn.

    Yeah, he said afterwards it was a pace note they had listed wrong in recce. He was flying eh, already 30+ seconds up on the rest of the classics and sitting in 5th overall behind the top NZRC cars.

    Not quite an Ooops moment but scary when a submarine surfaces next to us and two bods on top of the coning tower get on a loud hailer and tell you to bugger off.

    Coming thick and fast, another grounding, this time on another ship in Indonesia.
    MV Western Islander, 115 feet long and 35 of us crewed her for 2 months at a time, a good little tub. Shit we went to some places on her that tourists would never get to. It was a shallow water seismic survey vessel fitted with aqua pulse guns, I was a Gun mechanic on her of and on for a couple of years. It's hull bottom was 11/2 inch plate, engin room had 3 x v8 supercharged and turbocharged gm's absolutley screaming there nuts off. Anyway we ran aground often.

    Had a close one on the forklift yesterday. I was taking a stack of ten or so old pallets to a fire in the neighbours yard, approaching the fire I figured Ill just drive right up, plonk them on top (it was a pile of hot coals at this stage) biff it in reverse and jitz it outta there. All went perfectly to plan until I gave the her too much herbs on the gravel yard and fuckin near got stuck. Luckily pulsing the gas pedal got a bit of a rock going an steamed us out just in time to watch the flames lick up the pallets
