    Brian Elmiger

    Top bushmen and machine operator. A very strong man and a great father and husband.
    Brian died (cancer) on Saturday. Aged 68. I really liked and respected Brian. Rest well mate.

    Didn't know him but remember his logging gang signs on the roads of Kaiangaroa many years ago.

    I remember the family name, and was at school with some of them in the 80s.

    He ran a tight crew when he and his brother were logging. I never worked for him but knew a few that did.

    Unusually for the times, his guys would get Christmas gifts.

    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

    I went to Taupo Nui with Brendan Elmiger (would be 40ish now), I assume they are related.
