Trout Hunting Season

Began again here. and runs thought to September
Spent some time, like 5 hrs the day before slashing the track in to be wide enough, blackberry is not paint friendly
Had a good day though.


The flight was uneventful, which is what one wants when one is transporting an Elephant.

    And,
     I have some sage advice to anyone contemplating a 3 or 4 or etc point turn when running out of track..
    Do not back into the river without checking the drop off first
    Your in cab camera does not tell you the depth of the side stream nor does it compute the ground clearance
    4 wheel drive is utterly useless when the 2 back wheels are hanging in the water, the exhaust pipe is burbling as it is also under water and your in panic mode as there is nobody for miles.

    Spin fishing in that water Diver
    I didn't have a choice, Against all what I thought was reason I had to back further in to the river then
    drive forward sidewise to get some grip and get out
    probably took 30K  or more off my tyres.
    Said a small prayer when I had all 4 wheels back on the bank.

    Fish taste better when you have to "earn" them, ask for an electric winch or a comealong winch for Christmas and a high lift jack.

    Forget the winch, you need a wench, with her own bigger truck, likes dogs, and appreciates a man in his underwear standing in cold water :D
