SEPT 01 2015

 

A REGULAR TRIP OVER THE SO-CALLED ROAD TOOK A LITTLE LONGER COMING BACK DUE TO A FLAT TIRE. MY FIRST FLAT TIRE IN 10 YEARS BECAUSE I BUY QUALITY TIRES BUT THIS TIRE WAS ONLY 2 MONTHS OLD WHEN IT DIED A QUICK DEATH. OH WELL IT IS ONLY $372.00 KISSED GOOD-BYE, LOL.

 

FLAT

 

THEN I HAD TO MOVE THE FIREWOOD FROM THE TRUCK TO THE TRAILER BECAUSE THE SPARE TIRE IS NOT AS EXPENSIVE AS THE TIRES I BUY FOR THE PINK CREW CAB. MORE EXCERCISE MOVING FIREWOOD AROUND WHICH IS NOT A PROBLEM BECAUSE IT WAS NOT RAINING.

 

MOVING

 

AUG 31 2015

 

I TOOK THE EVENING OFF FROM WORKING ON THE BOAT TO CUT UP SOME FIREWOOD. IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG COLD WINTER BY THE AMOUNT OF WOOD PALLETS I HAVE HAULED BACK TO THE "KINGDOM".

 

FIREWOOD

 

AUG 30 2015

 

IT TOOK 2 DAYS BUT I FINALLY GOT THE BACK END OF THE "BOAT-BARGE" CUT OPEN FOR THE RAMP. YESTERDAY WAS A TERRIBLE DAY WITH HIGH WINDS AND RAIN OFF AND ON BUT I GOT IT DONE.

 

RAMP

 

INSIDE

AUG 28 2015

 

I HAD TO WAIT FOR IT TO GET DARK SO I COULD USE THE "LAZER" LEVEL TO MARK THE BACK OF THE BOAT FOR MAKING THE RAMP OPENING.

 

LAZER

 

AUG 27 2015

 

IT WAS A GOOD NIGHT BY GETTING TO ROOF SIDE PIPES TACKED IN TO PLACE.

 

ROOF

 

AUG 26 2015

 

LAST NIGHT WE WERE ABLE TO GET 2 MORE ROOF SUPPORTS ON THE BIG BOAT AND FINISH UP WITH DAYLIGHT FOR TAKING PICTURES. NEVER THOUGHT THE BOAT WOULD BE THIS HIGH JUST SITTING IN THE YARD.

 

ROOF

 

AUG 23 2015

 

IT IS HAS BEEN BUSY IN THE "KINGDOM BUT I DID WORK ON MY BOAT TO RELAX, LOL.

 

BOAT

AUG 16 2015

 

I JUST SPENT 2 DAYS RIPPING OFF THE OLD DECK ON THE BEAVER TAIL TRAILER AND INSTALLING NEW WOOD PLUS SPLASHING A LITTLE PAINT TOO.

 

OLD

 

I EVEN PUT NEW REFECTIVE TAPE ON THE NEW PAINT TO MAKE THE TRAILER LOOK FANCY.

 

NEW TAPE

 

AUG 15 2015

 

IT WAS A QUICK TRIP TO KINOOSAO TO LOAD SOME POP AND CHIPS ON THE BIG BOAT.

 

POP

 

THE CHIPS IN THE BACK SEAT RODE VERY NICELY AFTER I PUT A PIECE OF WOOD TO KEEP THEM FROM MOVING FORWARD.

 

CHIPS

 

AUG 14 2015

 

IT WAS A TRIP TO THOMPSON THAT TURNED IN TO A BIG TRIP BUT WE GOT IT DONE.

 

LOADED

 

THE SOUNDS FROM THE CHIPS WRINKLING WAS SO BAD I WORE MY EAR PLUGS, LOL.

 

CHIPS

 

AUG 13 2015

 

I DECIDED AFTER 20 YEARS OF MOVING THE BUCKET FOR THE LOADER WITH OUT A PROPER PALLET, I BUILT ONE OUT OF SCRAP STEEL SO I CAN MOVE IT EASILY AROUND THE "KINGDOM".

 

BUCKET

 

AUG 12 2015

 

IT IS NICE HAVING CAMERAS IN THE "KINGDOM" BECAUSE I CAN SEE HOW MUCH WORK I GET DONE IN A DAY.

 

RECORDED

 

AUG 11 2105

 

WE HAD A NICE HARD RAIN WHICH COOLED THINGS DOWN A BIT.

 

RAINS

 

AUG 09 2015

 

IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR WHERE I CUT UP MY FIREWOOD WHICH IS OLD PALLETS I HAULS FROM THE SOUTH.

 

CUTTING

 

AUG 08 2015

 

I DID A QUICK TRIP UP THE "KINOOSAO RALLY ROAD" TO DOCK THE BARGE THAT TRAVELED ALL NIGHT. THE D6 9U KNOWN AS "THE HOOD" CAN JUST HANDLE THE BIG BARGE. BUT THE CAT HAS BEEN DOING THIS FOR 50 YEARS SO IT CAN DO IT FOR ANOTHER 50 YEARS.

 

BARGE

 

AUG 07 2015

 

IT WAS A QUICK TRIP TO THOMPSON OVER THE SO-CALLED ROAD. THE NEW TRAILER IS WORKING GREAT AND ONLY 46 MONTHS FROM NOW IT WILL BE PAID FOR, LOL.

 

FORKLIFT

 

I HAULED BACK SOME MORE PALLETS FOR FIREWOOD BECAUSE IT WILL BE A LONG COLD WINTER.

 

ALLETS

 

AUG 06 2015

 

I HAULED THE D6 9U KNOWN AS "THE HOOD" TO KINOOSAO FOR WHEN THE BARGE COMES IN. THE WATER IS VERY LOW THIS YEAR AND THE CAT WILL BE NEEDED FOR DOCKING THE BARGE.

 

CAT

 

ONCE I DROPPED THE CAT OFF I USED THE "WICKED WINCH" TO DRAG THE LITTLE FORKLIFT UP ON THE TRAILER PLUS ANY EXTRA FISH TUBS. I'LL DELIVERY ALL THIS TO THE RED ARMY FOR SHIPPMENT SOUTH.

 

FORD

 

AUG 04 2015

 

I FINALLY GOT TIRED OF MY BLOCKS USED FOR JACKING UP EQUIPMENT BEING IN THE SNOW. I WHIPPED UP A LITTLE LEAN TO SHED BESIDE THE SHOP FOR MY BLOCKS TO BE OUT OF THE SNOW. THE OLDER I GET THE SMARTER I'M GETTING.

 

SHED

 

NOW I JUST HAVE TO WHIP UP A DOOR AND THE SHED WILL BE FINISHED.

 

PAINTED

 

AUG 03 2015

 

THE D6 9U NEEDED NEW WOODEN TOP ROLLERS AFTER 5 YEARS SINCE I PUT THE LAST SET ON. THE RAILWAY TIE THAT I CUT WITH THE CHAINSAW HAD SOME NEAT RINGS TO TELL THE AGE OF THE TREE.

 

TIE

 

THE NEW WOODEN TOP ROLLERS SURE LOOKS GOOD AND THE CAT IS READY FOR THIS WINTER.

 

ROLLER

 

AUG 02 2015

 

IT WAS A RELAXING WEEKEND FIXING MY COLLECTABLES. THE PIT IN THE NEW SHOP SURE WORKS NICE FOR WORKING ON EQUIPMENT.

 

PIT

 

AUG 01 2015

 

I DID A LITTLE PAINTING ON THE SEWER BOX IN THE "KINGDOM".

 

PAINTING

 

JULY 30 2015

 

got a call last night to winch out a semi stuck in the sand at kinoosao. no problem because the Screaming Ford is always ready for a little late night fun. I took the 922 loader to fill in the hole in the sand with pit run gravel so the next semi doesn't get stuck. I got back to the Kingdom to see the sun come up so it was a long day and night for me, lol. thansk

JULY 29 2015

 

DUE TO A LIGHTING STRIKE ON THE COMMUNICATION TOWER, WE LOST ALL INTERNET AND PHONE SERVICES IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH. OH WELL THIS IS NORMAL AND LIFE WHEN ON FOR US, LOL. ON SATURDAY I GOT TO HAUL A GROUP FROM ENGLAND AND THEIR CANOES TO SOUTH INDIAN LAKE WHERE THEY WILL PADDLE 400KMS TO CHURCHILL ON THE SEAL RIVER. WHAT AN ADVENTURE THAT WILL BE FOR THEM AND I'M GLAD IT IS NOT ME, LOL.

 

CANOES

 

JULY 21 2015

 

I DID A TRIP TO THOMPSON AND ON THE WAY BACK THE PINK CREW CAB WAS ACTING UP. ON A GOOD PULL UP A HILL WITH THE LOADED TRAILER THE ENGINE WOULD GO IN LIMP MODE OF 2000 RPM. I CHANGED OUT THE FUEL FILTER AND TRIED A FEW OTHER THINGS AND THE ENGINE WOULD RE-SET ITS SELF. THE RE-SET WOULD LAST UNTIL THE NEXT BIG HILL AND THEN GO IN LIMP MODE AGAIN. JUST SHUT THE TRUCK OFF AND WAIT 10 MINUTES FOR A RE-SET AND WE GOOD TO GO AGAIN. THE TRIP TOOK 5 HOURS WITH THIS LITTLE PROBLEM BUT WE MADE IT BACK TO THE "KINGDOM". NOW TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE PROBLEM IS.

JULY 17 2015

 

I have been busy with my real job which I can't talk about because it is a secret. that is why I have not been posting too much on my website www.kingofobsolete.ca or no this site too. but I can show a picture of all the boxes of rocks on the beavertail trailer which i'm sorting by using coloured spray paint. yes this is the definition of confusion for a colour blind fellow, lol. thansk

 

painted

 

JULY 14 2015

 

LAST NIGHT I GOT THE CALL TO TRAVEL 600KMS ROUND TRIP TO PICK UP THE DRILL PIPE FROM A BROKEN TRAILER. THE TRAILER IS A SOUTHERN TRAILER AND THE SO-CALLED ROAD BROKE A FEW SPRINGS ON IT. SO THE LOAD HAD TO BE UNLOADED SO THE TRAILER COULD BE MOVED OFF THE ROAD. IT WAS A QUICK TRIP AND I GOT BACK TO THE "KINGDOM" AT 2am IN THE MORNING TO POURING RAIN WHICH IS BETTER THEN HOT HEAT, LOL.

 

LOAD

 

JULY 12 2015

 

THE WINCH IS NOW IN THE BOX AND ON THE TRAILER ALMOST READY TO BE USED.

 

BOX

 

ALL THE CHAINS AND BINDERS THAT ARE USED ON THE TRAILER FIT NICELY IN THE BOX TOO.

 

CHAINS

 

JULY 11 2015

 

I SPENT THE DAY CUTTING STRIPS OF PLYWOOD FOR USE ON THE CORE BOX PALLETS. IT WAS A FUN DAY WORKING IN THE HEAT.

 

STRIPS

 

JULY 10 2015

 

LAST NIGHT I GOT TO WORK ON THE NEW WINCH FOR THE NEW TANDEM TRAILER WHICH I'LL OWN IN 4 YEARS AFTER MAKING MONTHLY PAYMENTS. I'M MOUNTING THE WINCH INSIDE A JOB BOX SO IT IS WELL PROTECTED.

 

WINCH

 

BUT THE BOX NEEDS A GOOD FRAME TO SUPPORT THE WINCH WHICH I WHIPPED UP OUT OF RECYCLED MATERIAL.

 

FRAME

 

JULY 09 2015

 

THE PEOPLE ARE DONE CAMPING AFTER WEEK AND NOW I HAVE THE CAMPER IN THE "KINGDOM". NOT SURE WHAT WILL HAPPEN WITH THE CAMPER BECAUSE THE TRUCK THAT WAS PULLING IT GOT SHIPPED SOUTH FOR COMPUTER REPAIRS.

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

 

APRIL 20 2015

 

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.

 

NETTING

 

JAN 19 2015
