    Last time I asked google maps to navigate anywhere rural (I knew how to get there but wanted to know how far it was) it tried to send me on a 30km+ detour to avoid 5km of gravel road!

    yeh I think google thinks gravel roads are where hillbillies and end of days people live and they are trying to protect you from running into them and your car might get dirty too.

    no pics but had a ELT in the back of my plane self activate the other day due to an electrical short. happened at 6000 feet so every one from Te Anau to god knows where started looking for the damn thing, couldnt shut it off without being on the ground, didnt even know 100% it was mine untill i landed.

    That horrid feeling though when you see a chopper scanning the Routeburn track at low level while knowing that the issue is either in your plane or the one in front.

    Yesterday I had to go halfway to Taumuranui because a lady did some unscheduled offroading.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    That seems all wrong when you look at it. The bale in the calipers I see a lot around here lately but tractors on their side, not so much.
    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

    That is not hard. Brads is only a one trick pony!
