Early Morning 737

Working the morning shift can have its little perks, this was my view the other day as the sun was coming up…Early Morning 737


1000000 Page Requests

Wow, hard to believe that I have hit the million marker on the counter. I assume that many of those page requests come from bots, scripts, and search engines that are just logging the internet in there usual way. But at any rate, its still a ton of traffic considering that I only advertise this website on my Youtube channel. Thanks to those who have been watching my stuff all this time. I have been working alot over the last month or so and have had very little time to video edit. I actually have 4 videos on the go right now, but require some good time and weather to finish them off. Summer is a difficult time of year because I just want to get out of the house and do things with the kids while its warm. Sitting down at the computer is not very appealing right now…so off I go.


Deer hunting was a Success?

So I decided it was time upgrade my car.

To do this I decided call the W.T.D. suicide hotline. They had a couple candidates in the area and set me up with one they thought could help. After discussing a few things we setup a time and location to meet. With exceptional coordination and timing I managed to connect with my counterpart at about 7:20 this morning. The agreed location was just after an intersection of on Trans-Canada highway west bound. It was dark and difficult to see, and I was caught completely off gaurd by the incident. There was no time to react.
I must say I was surprised at how good the W.T.D. are at keeping to the plan, because I was in the wrong lane. I was supposed to be in the left lane as per our contract. But I was actually in the right lane. Thus the W.T.D. candidate had to move across the road to get into position. I think he was desperately trying to get into final position because the image I have in my head of that moment has the essence of “I think I can make it!”
In keeping with my part of the deal, the hit was to be fast and clean, minimum 110 KPH. I feel I held to that part of the plan because the two clean-up crew guys said that the left overs looked more like a MAC truck had done the job….not a car.
Big thanks to Toyota for doing their part in creating a safe and reliable car that has crumple zones in the correct places. The Air-bag did deploy under the impact, although it wasn’t needed.
At the end of it all, the car looks to be a write-off. The White Tail Deer is in a better place now. And I came out with virtually no damage.
