Feels odd that I never fired the air rifle (delegated to someone else) but did manage to get the wagon stuck. I'd post some photos but was too busy doing to document it, and anyway, my phone refuses to charge or connect to the computer after it went for a swim.

    Just not enough hands to operate the levers, wheel, pedals.

    Just a couple. Like to poke it back to 4x2 for doughnuts. Manual box comes into it's own with that. Found enough water that it stinks inside and will take a few days to dry and air out the inside. Heaps of very tight tracks. And the Bighorn is brilliant at the steep river terrace climbs that make the young fellas scream like my sister finding a spider. I'll go higher and steeper till the others all fail. Then I'll repeat it again to rub it in.

    na I just keep on misplacing my vice grips!
    they are easy to find when they are holding my aerial up.
    I am actually looking for a hi gain aerial to replace my fucked one but none down in the big smoke.
    I might have to venture on line!

    @gadgetman, sounds like camp has improved drastically from my time, all we got to do was a few hours in kayaks and a bit of tramping...

    And yours was better than mine, didn't have the kayaks. Actually we didn't even have the camps.

    Andy go for the Kotanga brand. They are all the rage around South Auckland. I have even seen a few out West but those guys mostly steal a new car if they break an aerial.

    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

    If you need a stronger hi gain aerial, you can't go past the pig tail standard. You won't break that one off
