    Diesels don't run on water I told him........

    Friday arvo a while back -"Going Tahr hunting" says the boy, "wanna come?" - nahh says dad, "been raining the last couple of days and forecast is for showers, they'll keep the river topped up, best stay at home, I'll come next weekend". "Losing your nerve in your old age!" chortles the boy "See ya when we get back Monday"

    "Telling you now, I know that river, leave it till next weekend" - "We'll be all good, been up there a thousand times" - "Yeah, with me doing the driving and you not paying attention, take my chain block and tow straps and ground anchors, ok"? - "ok, but we won't need them"

    Sunday.......... sees me dragging a car trailer to the Macauly River to carry out a rescue

    Not even that deep...... what happened ?
    Also pointing upstream in that swift water is asking for trouble in my opinion, I always try to cross pointing diagonally down stream if it looks a bit sketchy

    At least you did the rescue more than some parents/mates would have done.

    Couldn't resist the opportunity to have the boy stuck in my truck for several hrs listening to how many different ways I can find to say "I told you so"!

    Young fellahs aye? They've gotta learn the hard way. I guess we all did.
    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

    Classic at least it looks like it's all there, could have been munted as well. Worth its' weight in gold for the "remember when you thought you knew better and I towed you out of the river"

    It's unusual to find youth, wisdom, and humility in the same person.
