    Chopper Question

    Anyone Nelson/Richmond know what the blue chopper with the big surf caster sticking out front is up to?
    Saw a white one while waiting for the ferry last Monday.

    There was something similar up the desert rd before christmas and they were spraying contorta on the maori blocks.Could be doing dope or other noxious plants.

    haha yeah I bet, maybe they just want to peak in the window?
    Its a system that picks up anomalies in the earth while flying around. they have to fly a certain height, speed, track. Quite accurate flying.

    8am? Hell, I dont usually get out of bed before 2pm, mind you I have just finished work now and will be off to bed in an hour. Work until 3am or 5am most nights, sleep until after lunch, afternoons are "me time" and off to work when I am good and ready.......Usually start at 18:45.....
