Morning all,

We've had some good weather last few days but it is raining hard now.

Currently a bit stalled workwise, waiting on comments from Canadians and Germans...

Been doing a bit of clearing... about 40% completed...


Track came off twice due to a bad rear roller on the left side... had to send machine back for repairs... I got tired of putting the track back on, so probably don't get back to it until end of week if it is just the roller...making some bad whining noise.  Sounds like more than roller to me, but can still hope.  That power mulcher is quite a tool.

Looks like a lot of work Dan, hope the machine fix is on the easier side.

Scrummy, what kind of comments are you waiting for, maybe I can help?

Putting the track back on is a lot more work than doing the clearing...

Afternoon gents

Hey Dan, did you rent that machine, who from, and how much an hour/day?
Looks like something I could use.
Oh, and post a picture if you can.

One more Dan. How long did it take you to clear that area?
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Just want to see what's going on with a report and if people are happy.

Mornin gents

Sounds like an interesting match, Scrummy. Oriented towards hunting. What are the targets?

We had a big rain yesterday and I got caught out in it, in the Mustang. I was coming down Muldraugh hill on 31W, and I noticed my car tramlining really bad. I thought, "I never remember this section of road being this bad", then I remembered I was on 305 Sport Cup 2 tires. I was hydroplaning! I backed off to the speed limit. That felt weird, but the hydroplaning stopped. First time I've driven the Mustang in a real rain.

Robin Rents...$4200.00/week.  $800.00 delivery and pick-up.  It's not here right now... being worked on.
Clearing that area up took me about 1.5 hours, but I spent years running a tracked loader, so once I got the peculiarities of mulcher down, it was pretty easy.

I am using Sellier & Belliot factory 286gr (18.5 gram) currently for the cases.

Big fat slow soft point.

Usually for hunting I use 250gr Accubond and for practice 255 gr Geco for practice but I need brass and ironically, shooting factory S&B is the cheapest way to get decent brass

My old Corvette was terrible in heavy rain.
