IT HAS BEEN A VERY TOUGH WEEK IN THE KINGDOM WITH MY CO-STAR GERRY PASSING ON. I HOPE WHEN I'M 73 YEARS OLD I CAN STILL BAKE BIRTHDAY CAKES AND BE A SOCIAL BUTTERFLY. GERRY REALLY ENJOYED BE ON NATIONAL TV DRIVING A CAT ON ICE ROAD TRUCKERS AT THE AGE OF 71. OF COURSE THE FAMOUS BLACK CAT WAS THE SAME AGE AS HE WAS. WE WILL MISS GERRY BECAUSE WE DID A LOT OF THINGS TOGETHER. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND. THANSK

JAN 25 2015

 

THE SCREAMING FORD IS LOADED UP AND READY TO GO BUT WE ARE WAITING FOR PARTS FOR THE GRADER.

 

FORD

 

IT HAS BEEN A BUSY WEEK WITH WORKING ON THE GRADER THAT I REBUILT WHEN I WORKED AT THAT REAL JOB AT MID-NORTH HAULING. SINCE I HAD LEFT 3 YEARS AGO, THE POOR GRADER NEEDS A LOT OF LOVE NOW.

 

740

 

THE HOOD ON THE SCREAMING FORD NEEDED A LITTLE WORK ON IT AFTER I HIT A SEMI TRAILER IN THE YARD AT 1AM IN THE MORNING. IT WAS DARK AND I WAS TIRED AND OF COURSE I BROKE THE FIBERGLASS FENDER BIG TIME. NO PROBLEM JUST DO A QUICK REPAIR UNTIL IT CAN BE FIXED PROPERLY.

 

NO HOOD

 

BLACK

JAN 20 2015

 

I WORKED LATE LAST NIGHT LOADING UP FOR THE NEXT ADVENTURE. WINCHING THE CABOOSE ON TO THE BEAVER TAIL TRAILER WAS GREAT FUN BECAUSE THE DECK WAS NICE AND SLIPPERY WITH THE FRESH SNOW.

 

CABOOSE

 

JAN 19 2015

 

I WAS VERY SURPRISED WHEN I RECIEVED A PACKAGE IN THE MAIL FROM NORTHERN IRELAND LAST WEEK. ALL I COULD SAY WAS WOW EH!!

 

GIFT

 

JAN 18 2015

 

WE ARE GETTING READY FOR AN ADVENTURE WHICH WILL INVOLVE THE CABOOSE.

 

CABOOSE

 

JAN 17 2015

 

IT WAS A WINDY SNOWY DAY IN THE "KINGDOM" SO I HID IN THE SHOP WORKING ON A SKI-DOO TRAILER. I WHIPPED UP A RAMP AND A FRONT HEADACH RACK TO KEEP THE QUADS FROM FALLING OFF.

 

RAMP

 

OF COURSE I HAD TO PAINT THE TRAILER BLACK.

 

BLACK

 

JAN 14 2015

 

IT WAS A NICE DAY YESTERDAY TO DO A COUPLE OF TOW CALLS. THE "SCREAMING FORD" HAD NO PROBLEM TOWING THIS BROKEN FORD 1/2 TON TRUCK.

 

TOW

 

JAN 11 2015

 

SORRY FOR THE DELAY IN NOT UPDATING THE WEBSITE BUT WE ARE HAVING ELECTRICAL ISSUES IN THE "KINGDOM". WHEN THE POWER IS ACTING FUNNY I DON'T HAVE MY WEBSITE LAPTOP PLUGGED IN OR TURNED ON IN FEAR OF IT GETTING TOASTED.

ONCE AGAIN IT IS A NEW YEAR SO MY PINK CREW CAB IS BROKEN AGAIN. LAST YEAR IT COST $6500.00 IN REPAIRS AT THE FIRST OF JANUARY. NOT SURE WHAT THIS WILL COST BECAUSE THE TRANS LINE POPPED OFF AGAIN. GOOD THING IT BROKE CLOSE TO THE "KINGDOM" AND I JUST DRAGGED THE TRUCK HOME WITH THE LOADER.

TOWING

JAN 03 2015

 

IT WAS ONLY -35C WITH A WHILL CHILL OF -42C SO IT WAS A GOOD DAY TO WORK INSIDE THE SHOP. I FINISHED UP THE LAST BUNK FOR THE LAST 2 SLEIGHS I'M BUILDING. IT LOOKS EVEN BETTER WITH A GOOD COAT OF PAINT SPLASHED EVERY WHERE, LOL.

 

BUNK

 

JAN 02 2015

 

THE WIND HAS BEEN BLOWING PRETTY GOOD FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. I ENDED UP WITH A CROP CIRCLE BEHIND THE BUNKHOUSE. A VERY NEAT DESIGN CONSIDERING HOW TINY THE LITTLE WEED WAS.

 

CIRCLE

 

JAN 01 2015

 

IT IS TIME TO UPDATE THE WEBSITE. I HAD A REALXING HOLIDAY WORKING ON LITTLE JOBS NOT WORTHY OF A PICTURE. OK, FIXING TOILETS AT THE HOTEL IS NOT WORTH TAKING PICTURES OF, LOL. THE OLDER I GET, THE MORE HANDY MAN JOBS I SEEM TO BE DOING. BUT I DID GET A REALLY NICE CHROME TIE DOWN BAR USED ON THE SEMI TRUCKS. THE FELLOW DRESSED THE BAR UP TO LOOK LIKE A STICK LADY. NOW I HAVE TO FIND A LADY TO FIT THE PANTIES THEN A LADY TO FIT THE BRA. I DON'T THINK I COULD FIND A LADY IN TOWN TO FIT BOTH ITEMS, LOL.

 

SEXY

 

I DID GET MY NEW AIR COMPRESSOR INSTALLED NICE AN HIGH IN THE SHOP SO THE DRAIN DOES NOT FREEZE UP. IT IS NICE HAVING AN AIR COMPRESSOR AGAIN SINCE THE OTHER ONE BLEW UP IN AUGUST.

 

AIR

DEC 26 2014

 

XENA AND I DID A TRIPUP THE WINTER ROAD THAT IS NOT OPEN YET. WE HAD WAIT TO DO THIS ADVENTURE BECAUSE THE TEMPERATURES WERE TOO WARM. WHEN THE TEMPERATURE DROPPED TO -32C WITH A WINDCHILL OF -42C, THEN IT WAS GOOD TO GO. THE SCREAMING FORD FIRED RIGHT UP AND LOOKED GOOD WITH DUAL EXHAUST STACKS.

 

MORNING

 

HEADING HOME WITH MY WAGON FROM THE ADVENTURE WE DID BACK IN MAY WHICH I HAVE TO ADD TO THE WEBSITE.

 

WAGON

 

DEC 25 2014

 

TO TREAT MYSELF WITH A GIFT FOR MYSELF, I BOUGHT A HIGH TOP TOILET SINCE I'M GETTING OLD.

 

TOILET

 

DEC 24 2014

 

IT WAS GREAT FUN TRANSPORTING AND UNLOADING THE NEW AIR COMPRESSOR FOR THE SHOP BECAUSE IT IS TOP HEAVY. THE LAST AIR COMPRESSOR LASTED 14 YEARS SO I CAN'T COMPLAIN, LOL.

 

COMPRESSOR

 

DEC 23 2014

 

WE DID A QUICK TO THOMPSON OVER THE SO-CALLED ROAD. WE LEFT THE "KINGDOM" AT 4am AND RETURNED BY 9pm WHICH MAKES FOR A LONG DAY. WE HAD TO RUSH AND RUSH TO GET EVERYTHING LOADED AND PICK UP ON TIME BECAUSE A LOT OF PLACES CLOSED EARLY DUE TO THE HOLIDAYS. I HAVE 8 TRAILERS IN MY BUMPER HITCH FLEET AND I CHOSE THE TANDEM TO HAUL THIS LOAD BACK. WE LOADED PALLETS THEN RE-ORGANIZED THE PALLETS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO HAUL A COMPLETE SHOWER AND GLASS DOORS. NOW THE FUN BEGINS UNLOADING AND UNPACKING PLUS DELIVERING TO.

 

LOADED

 

SHOWER

 

DEC 22 2014

 

I FINISHED THE SECOND BACK BUNK AND IT LOOKS IMPRESS WITH 2 BUNKS COMPETED BECAUSE THAT IS 32 HOURS OF WELDING.

 

BUNKS

 

 

DEC 21 2014

 

IT WAS A BORING DAY IN THE SHOP WELDING UP ANOTHER SLEIGH BUNK. BUT WE DO HAVE AN ADVENTURE COMING UP BECAUSE WE HAVE TO GO AND GET THE WAGON. WE LEFT THE WAGON UP ON THE WINTER ROAD LAST MAY WHEN WE DROVE THE 2 FRONT END LOADERS TO LAC BROCHET. IT WAS ONLY USED TO HAUL THE FUEL NEEDED FOR THE LOADERS. ONCE THE FUEL WAS GONE WE DIDN'T NEED TO DRAG THE WAGON ALONG SO WE LEFT IT IN THE BUSH.

 

WAGON

 

DEC 20 2014

 

I FINALLY GOT THIS SLEIGH BUNK COMPLETED AND READY TO START THE SECOND BACK BUNK. VERY RELAXING WORKING IN A HEATED SHOP THIS TIME OF THE YEAR.

 

BUNK

 

DEC 19 2014

 

I HAVE DECIDED TO TRY AND GET THE LAST OF MY SLEIGH BUNKS FINISHED FOR MY SLEIGHS. TODAY I WAS WORKING ON THE BACK BUNK FOR THE P.A.T. SKIS. IT IS A SLOW JOB BUT THE SHOP IS NICE AND WARM, LOL.

 

BUNK

 

 

DEC 18 2014

 

YESTERDAY I TOOK THE TD-18 KNOWN AS "DUALLY" OUT FOR A SPIN BUT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH SNOW. THE SNOWS HAVE NOT COME THIS YEAR BUT THE COLD HAS BEEN HERE FOR A LONG TIME.

 

DUALLY

 

DEC 17 2014

 

A FRIEND OF MINE IN THE LAND OF OZ SENT ME THE DVD COLLECTION FOR THE FILM "BACK OF BEYOND". IT IS A REALLY GOOD STORY OF PLAYING IN THE DESERT.

 

BACK

DEC 16 2014

 

THE DESK IN MY LITTLE OFFICE WAS GETTING TOO SMALL FOR 2 COMPUTERS AND MAILING OUT BOOKS. IT ONLY TOOK A COUPLE OF HOURS TO WHIP UP AND EXTENSION.

 

BIGGER

DEC 15 2014

 

MY SO CALLED GUARD DOGS IN THE "KINGDOM" ARE MORE INTERESTED IN HAVING FUN THEN DOING THEIR JOB. THEY SEEM TO LIKE GETTING THEIR PICTURE TAKEN TOO.

 

DOGS

DEC 14 2014

 

IT WAS A BORING WEEKEND IN THE "KINGDOM" WITH WHIPPING UP TRAILER 6.

 

 

I RAN OUT OF BLACK PAINT TO FINISH PAINTING THIS TRAILER. BUT IT IS COMPLETE AND READY TO GO.

 

TRAILER

 

DEC 12 2014

 

I WAS BUSY FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS ON A SECRET PROJECT BUT I CAN SHOW YOU A COUPLE PICTURES ON THE WAY HOME. AT THIS TIME OF YEAR THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE ON THE PINK CREW CAB SHOULD READ -34C NOT -4C. IT IS A LITTLE TOO WARM FOR THIS TIME FO THE YEAR.

 

TEMP

 

THE PINK CREW CAB THIS MONING IN THE "KINGDOM". I CAN NEVER RETURN BACK WITH OUT MY SUPPLIES.

 

RETURN

 

DEC 08 2014

 

IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN I GET TO WORK ON THE "PINK CREW CAB". THIS TRUCK IS HIGH MAINTANCE FOR SOME REASON. OH WELL.

 

PINK

 

DEC 07 2014

 

I FORGOT TO POST A PICTURE OF THE SKI-DOO TRAILER FINISHED TO THE POINT OF HAVING TO WAIT FOR PARTS. ONE OF THE JOYS OF LIVING IN THE GREAT WHITE NORTH IS THE PARTS HAVE TO COME FROM THE SOUTH.

 

TRAILER

DEC 06 2014

 

AT -27C WITH A WINDCHILL OF -33C, I GOT THE 1939 CHEVY UP AND GOING. THE TRUCK IS EASY TO START AT COLD TEMPS BECAUSE IT HAS A MANUAL CHOKE.

 

39

 

DEC 05 2014

 

YESTERDAY WAS AN EASY DAY BY GETTING STARTED ON REWIRING THIS SK-DOO TRAILER. I ADDED A PIPE DOWN THE SIDE TO HIDE THE WIRES IN PLUS THE FELLOW WILL BE ABLE TO USE THE PIPE FOR STRAPPING THE LOAD DOWN.

 

WIRES

 

DEC 04 2014

 

AFTER 2 WEEKS I FINALLY GOT THE TANDEM TRAILER FINISHED AND OUT OF THE SHOP. NOW THE SHOP IS BACK TO NORMAL AND WARMER. I HAVE A COUPLE OF DAYS WORK ON THIS SKI-DOO TRAILER TO MAKE IT WORTHY OF THE GREAT WHITE NORTH.

DEC 03 2014

 

THE HIGH SPEED (IT IS NOT HIGH SPEED) INTERNET WAS DOWN FOR A DAY SO I COULD NOT UP DATE THE WEBSITE. I HAVE A HIGH SPEED (IT IS NOT HIGH SPEED, IT IS WORSE THEN DIAL UP) DISH THAT I WAS ABLE TO DO EMAILS WITH. I WORKED ON THE TANDEM TRAILER DOING THE LIGHTS ON THE BACK AGAIN. PLUS I WROTE A FEW STORIES FOR MY 4TH BOOK WHICH I HAVE TO GET IN TO PRINT.

FOR SOME REASON WHEN THE DOGS SEE THE CAMERA NOW, THEY WANT TO BE IN THE PICTURE.

 

LIGHTS

 

DEC 01 2014

 

WE HAD A NICE JOB ALL SUMMER HAULING GARBAGE FROM THE NEW BUILDING THAT WAS BEING BUILT AT HUGHES LAKE. THE BUILDING IS NOW COMPLETE SO WE HAVE NO MORE GARBAGE TO HAUL.

 

HUGHES

 

MY STAFF DID NOT THINK IT WAS ALL GOING TO GET IT TO FIT IN WHAT WE BROUGHT TO HAUL IT AWAY BUT WE DID GET IT ALL IN.

 

LOADED

NOV 30 2014

 

AFTER I FINISHED WELDING UP THE SKI-DOO SLEIGH HITCH, I TOOK THE REST OF THE DAY OFF TO RELAX AND WATCH A FEW MOVIES.

 

HITCH

 

NOV 29 2014

 

TODAY I HAD TO HAUL A LOAD OF WATER FOR THE "KINGDOM". THE SHOP EXTENSION MADE IT GREAT FUN TO GET THE WATER PUMPED IN TO THE SHOP BECAUSE THE HOSE WAS NOT QUITE LONG ENOUGH. OH WELL, LOL.

 

WATER

NOV 28 2014

 

IT WAS A BORING DAY IN THE "KINGDOM" BECAUSE ALL I DID WAS SIGN BOOKS AND MAIL THEM AROUND THE WORLD. I DID CHECK OUT THE SNAIL MAIL ADDRESSES ON GOOGLE TO MAKE SURE THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT. IT SURE IS NEAT TO SEE WHERE PEOPLE LIVE USING GOOGLE. HERE IS A PICTURE OF XENA ON THE D6 9U KNOWN AS "THE HOOD" PULLING LOADED SLEIGHS TO SICKLE LAKE LODGE IN APRIL. WE HAD A LOT OF FUN ON THAT TRIP AND I WILL ADD THE PICTURES TO THE WEBSITE WHEN I GET A CHANCE AND THE COMPUTER LIKES ME, LOL.

 

CAT

NOV 27 2014

 

THE COLD WEATHER BRINGS GREAT FUN FOR THE NEW STYLE VEHICLES WHICH MEANS MONEY FOR ME. THE NEW SCHOOL BUS ALWAYS QUITS IN COLD WEATHER BECAUSE OF THE DEF FUEL SYSTEM. THIS IS ANOTHER REASON WHY I BUILT A TOW TRUCK FOR THE "SCREAMING FORD". I HAD NO PROBLEM BACKING UP THROUGH A 60 FOOT WIDE DOOR TO GET THE BUS IN A WARM BUILDING.

 

BUS

 

ONE THING NICE ABOUT THIS BUS IS THERE IS LOTS OF GOOD STEEL AT THE BACK TO HOOK UP THE TOWING CRADLE. OF COURSE I USED LOTS OF CHAINS TO MAKE SURE THE BUS DID NOT GO ANY WHERE.

 

CHAINS
