    Great stuff. I know the speech "I'm almost certain this is going to to work, so I'm not saying run, I'm saying be ready to run, that's all"

    Total chaos yesterday. Report of blown water main. New pressure vessel's inspection cover was torqued wrong from the factory and developed an air leak, which means a shutdown of our two primary wells, and had to organize the annual fish plant (stocking Rainbows and Browns) at various locations. We spent all day yesterday ripping shit up to find the leak, which with water levels being what they are, put us below the water table. Rigged up a trash pump so we could expose the pipe. Ran out of daylight, left the pump to run all night, and turned the water back on. Hell with it I said, let it leak for the night. Got up at 5 to meet a guy from the city who has an account with the utilities supplier (got an application for credit while I was there so we can set up an account. They had EVERYTHING.). Five guys standing around the hole tell me it's 6 inch pipe, so, being a retard, I didn't measure it myself. Got back with the sleeves, gaskets, bolts and collars, only to hear that it's actually 4". That's on me as much as anyone. Anyways, back to town, exchange everything for 4", rent a cutoff saw, and buy the $300 ductile iron blade that we needed. Race back, cut the pipe, cut the new pipe, splice and torque everything in. NO LEAKS!! yay. Meanwhile, the guys removed the inspection cover, rotated the gasket, added a little RTV, and are now in the process of properly staking down the cover on our main water tank. Hopefully it will hold air. Also, put together a group of kids (20 year olds, but whatever) to bucket brigade fish into the designated lakes. . . I'm not going to worry about how that's going. They're going to have to figure out how to do things for themselves eventually. . . Right? So, by the end of the day we should have fixed the busted water main, fixed the leaking pressure vessel, planted the damn fish, snuck off the property to go grind the rest of my stumps, then fire meeting tonight. Ugh. . . It's been a busy day. Got recruited for a tree job by the guy I met at the city though, so that was cool. Just bitching, no point to any of this 8) Cheers.

    Slapping people upside the head is frowned upon nowadays but that's the overwhelming urge I get when in public. To dish out some wake up slaps. Just like when falling asleep driving, a little sting can do wonders for alertness. Lol. I'll blame it on my dad. Rude and clueless behaviour would get you a wake up call real quick from my old man.

    It noids me out when the concrete is more plentiful than the grass. I also just can't stand how clueless and selfish most people come across to me. The way they walk, drive, talk to cashiers/servers or whatever. I'm a friendly, polite guy until given a reason not to be. But honestly just striking up some friendly small talk nowadays seems mor often than not to be met with a nearly bizarre resistance. Like I get the feeling they'd rather have me text them, than say it verbally. :whine: The distinct lack of common courtesy that I witness when out and about gets me real hot under the collar. Please, thank you, excuse me, etc.

    Nope. Kelowna is about 50minutes away. And I loathe going there. Traffic,people, concrete. It's pretty much full of a lot of things I don't like much. I am a stick in the mud!

    squisher replied to a thread Grapple for mini in Gear Forum
    I believe in general tires are easier on the grass. I had turf tires on mine and found it very easy on lawns. I also felt I had good traction still but I never ran a tracked mini to compare. I would have no doubts a tracked machine has more traction. Fwiw also when I purchased my ramrod a tracked unit was a chunk more than the tire version.

    Thanks Butch. Four to eight weeks until my application is processed so still a bit to wait. Jay to clarify, if I ever had the honour and privilege to work with you, you can bet I'd do a lot more listening than talking, and a lot more asking than telling. I'd probably still have my tree business if I was able to hire men of your caliber. But I'd need you to have my back with some of my petty rules, to keep the rest of the crew in line. ;)

    I already did one easy climb this year up Mt Constitution on Orcas Island in the San Juans. It was a trip and a route that I'd been drooling over for a decade, looking at it across the water from Lummi. By looking at night from Lummi, I found one route that avoided all houses and roads. The original plan was to kayak over there, bushwhack to the top and back to the beach and kayak back, all in two days. But we couldn't get any kayaks and so had to get a ride on a leaky smelly shrimp boat instead. Then after bushwhacking only about a quarter mile, we found a deer trail that led to some mountain bike trails and we made it to the top and back to the beach on the first day. Then we had to wait a whole other day for our ride to pick us up again. Granted it was only 2400 ft of vertical with no technical climbing at all, but it was a bit of a letdown that it was so easy.

    Whenever I go off on a trip by myself, my climbing partner always says "Climb safe! But not too safe."
