    This vehicle was stopped by police on the way to the tip yesterday. This is not the way you transport tyres for disposal. Please think about the safety of you, your passengers and other roadusers at all times #fb

    What was in the back? Looks like there's plenty of room in there?

    Very clever. Explaining that to the missus could be challenging. I wanted a piss badly and took the shortest route.
    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

    Wandered out to check the letterbox earlier and noticed that the neighbour's Air B'n'B guests' departure hadn't gone as smoothly as they might have liked.. one wheel soundly in the culvert with a ridge of stones beneath the centre-line of the car. At least they'd stopped before they broke anything, although I think it was more that they couldn't move any further..

    Wandered over to offer a hand and managed to get them out alright by jacking up the lowside (with a block under the jack), then bridging a hefty plank across the culvert under the wheel. Bit of careful manoeuvring and they were home free.

    Just had a knock on the door as I write this and he turns up with a couple bottles of wine and a few beers as thanks.

    Ive got a pretty cool video, of the boom and stick pulling up, out of the river valley, 4 trucks, all drive axles chained up, two pull, two push, but as yet no way to post. I keep trying.

    Looks warm and toasty. Friend of mine's stationed in Edmonton and he sent me a pic of his thermometer last week, -34oC.

    I am 500km north of Edmonton, Been a few very cold days, with wind and -37-38, wind chills to -45 or so, miserable, but that's when there is lots of work up here.
    One more month to endure then 6 weeks off, fishing and hunting in NZ.
