TODAY IS MY BRTHDAY AND I TURN 48 YEARS OLD AND MY 17 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HELPED ME LOAD THE 1948 SEDAN DELIVERY WITH ALL MY CHILDHOOD TOYS.

 

SEDAN

 

ONCE THE SEDAN DELIVERY WAS EMPTY OF MY COLLECTABLES I SPLASHED A COAT OF PAINT ON THE VEHICLE. IT LOOKS A LOT BETTER PAINTED THE "FLEET BLACK", LOL.

 

BLACK

 

MAY 17 2015

 

I DID A QUICK TRIP TO THOMPSON TO MEET UP WITH A WINTER ROAD TRUCKING FRIEND WHO BROUGHT MY NEW TRAILER AND 1948 CHEVY SEDAN DELIVERY NORTH. IT WAS A GREAT EVENING TO TRAVEL BACK TO THE KINGDOM OVER THE SO-CALLED ROAD.

I PICKED UP A COUPLE OF NEW TRAILER JACKS FOR SOME OF THE TRAILERS IN THE "BLACK FLEET". IT IS A GOOD THING I NUMBERED THE TRAILERS BECAUSE IT GETS A LITTLE CONFUSING HAVING THEM ALL PAINTED THE SAME COLOUR, LOL.

 

JACKS

 

MAY 14 2015

 

WE MADE A TRIP OVER THE SO-CALLED ROAD TO PICK UP SUPPLIES. IT IS A 14 HOUR DAY NO MATTER HOW FAST YOU TRY AND GET THE TRIP DONE. THEN IT IS ANOTHER 2 HOURS WHEN YOU GET HOME TO UNLOAD EVERYTHING.

 

TRIP

PLUMBING

 

OF COURSE I HAD TO RIP ALL THE TIN CEILING DOWN IN THE CAR WASH PART TO GET AT THE PLUMBING. THE 1939 CHEVY WORKED GOOD FOR STANDING IN THE BOX SO I COULD REACH. THE TRUCK IS A LOT SAFER THEN STANDING ON A LADDER AT MY AGE, LOL.

I HAD TO HELP OUT ON A FEW REPAIRS ON A FRIEND'S EQUIPMENT. THE BROKEN FRONT SPRING WAS EASY BECAUSE I HAVE CHANGED A LOT OF BROKEN SPRINGS OVER THE YEARS.

THEN THE RAINS CAME AND HAVING A ROOF ON THE SHOP WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE, LOL.

 

ROOF

 

MAY 01 2015

 

I HAVE BEEN A GOOD BOY FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS AND MADE MY MONTHLY PAYMENTS ON THE PINK CREW CAB AND 50HP MERC BOAT MOTOR."THEY" WERE NICE ENOUGH TO LET ME HAVE 2 BRAND NEW QUADS SO I STILL HAVE MONTHLY PAYMENTS. XENA SURE IS HAPPY BECAUSE IT IS ABOUT TIME WE GOT SOMETHING NEW.

AFTER A GOOD DAY OF RAIN AND A LITTLE BIT OF SNOW I WAS ABLE TO CLEAN UP A FEW BURNING PILES. IT HAS ONLY TAKEN 10 YEARS TO DO THIS LITTLE PROJECT.

APRIL 25 2015

 

THE "SCREAMING FORD" HAS ABOUT 1800 BOXES OF DRILL CORE ON THE DECK OF THE TRAILER WHICH IS A GOOD LOAD.

APRIL 22 2015

 

IT WAS ALMOST WARM OUTSIDE YESTERDAY AS I WELDED UP THE BOX ON THIS FORD TRUCK. THE "KINGDOM" IS SLOWLY DRYING UP WHICH IS NICE BECAUSE THEN I CAN GET SOME WORK DONE AROUND THE YARD.

 

WELDING

 

APRIL 21 2015

 

I WAS ASKED AGAIN FOR MY BLUE PRINT THAT I USED TO BUILD THE TOW TRUCK PART OF THE "SCREAMING FORD". I KEPT IT VERY SIMPLE, LOL.

 

DRAWING

I BORROWED A BACKHOE AND DID A LITTLE LANDSCAPING IN THE "KINGDOM". SINCE THE GROUND IS STILL FROZEN, IT MADE ME LOOK LIKE A GOOD OPERATOR, LOL.

 

CLEAN

 

APRIL 19 2015

 

IT WAS A FUN COUPLE OF DAYS GETTING THE LAST OF THE EQUIPMENT OFF THE WINTER ROAD THAT IS MELTING AWAY.

 

STUCK

 

I EVEN HAD TO PULL THE CHEVY TRUCKS IN TANDEM BECAUSE IT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG TO PULL ONE AT A TIME.

 

CHEVY

 

APRIL 13 2015

 

I DECIDED AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I WOULD TREAT MYSELF AND BUY BRAND NEW PARTS TO TUNE UP THE "FAMOUS BLACK CAT". EVERYTHING ARRIVED OK IN SHIPPING AND THE PARTS LOOK TO BE OF GOOD QUALITY.

 

IH PARTS

 

MARCH 16 2015

 

IT WAS A BUSY DAY IN THE "KINGDOM" WITH WINTER ROAD REPAIRS PLUS AN AIRPLANE ARRIVING.

 

ARRIVING

 

THE CARGO NETTING IS SO THE PLANE DOES NOT TRY AND FLY WHEN THE HELICOPTER IS CARRYING. I HAD THE EASY JOB OF UNHOOKING THE CABLE TO RELEASE THE PLANE, LOL.
