    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

    @ghosts yip was all good, tight slowish corner going around the tree so probably looks a bit more risky than it was. Good committed driving though, here it is a moment later:

    I was reminded of this photo today when we took our rubbish to the tip. Waste not, want not my old Grandma used to say, and at the tip one of the workers was rescuing another old Briggs & Stratton and some roofing steel.

    This is the remains of a bus, crashed badly into a tree, on a road in the far north of Mozambique, 2000. This was still pretty much out there in those days, very few Europeans around. There was a deep fear of them in the minds of the locals, after the Frelimo vs Renamo war, when the only white people the locals saw were mercenaries and Cold War special forces nasty bastards. You couldn't stray off the tar seal (thank you, Chinese) due to the real risk of losing your legs to a land mine.

    As you can see, nothing was wasted from the remains of this bus. The steel was used as roofing on shacks, and the engine and drive train mechanicals recycled into whatever would take them. You do what you need to do up there, to survive. No Bunnings or ITM.

    So nothing special photographically, just a reminder to me of how much we take for granted.
