    Hmmmm......where is the eye protection for mom and the kid? It does look like a blast though.

    Text if you want to meet him.

    Didn't get over a 20 miles an hour.

    I don't roll too fast with the kid on.

    Actually, I don't roll fast even when I'm alone.

    Think the unit will do over 50mph though.

    Hey, Dom, now that looks like a fun way of picking up the mail, cute little vehikkle, lovely wife and beautiful daughter. Makes our 'get out of bed, yawn and pick the mail up off the mat' seem quite boring by comparison. I could do a vid of me doing just that but, as it would scare the horses, I don't think I will. Mind you - we get the better bet when it is chuckin' it down with rain.

    Still trying to locate a battery for it.

    It has a bastard size and the area it goes makes substituting something else impossible.

    More I mess with it the more I like it though.

    Cool, but you can tell by the number of mailboxes there are just too dang many neighbors way to close by.
    A man's greatest mistake is to think he is working for somebody else.

    There are a lot of homes here, but I think most are vacation homes.

    On an average weekday we only get maybe 15 cars going by and there are maybe over a hundred homes past me.

    Right past my house the roads turn to gravel and it's a HUGE hill.

    I can't understand how these people can live that far up the mountain.

    When it snows they can't go anywhere.

    I was thinking more along the lines of bugs in the eyes. It doesn't take a very big bug to make a kid scream. I spent 10 years getting a lot of abuse but when I'd work with kids (little ones, not teenagers) it all sort of evened out.

    Cool

    Hey Dom, I found that footage of you going to get the mail by yourself that you won't let your wife see.

    Was it my imagination or, around 8:20 - 8:30 was the car up on two wheels? That looked a scary run. Initially it looked quite tame, fairly gentle curves and good surface, then the mud and dirt, sheer drops to left and right, changes of surface, changes in grip levels - it made it look more like a WRC round than a hill climb. Respect!

    That is some great footage you have there, Dom. Hard to tell who was the most laid back, the dog or the bear. Certainly the bear seemed to be quite comfortable with his position in your yard despite you and the pooch both being there.

    That was a sick run the fella did upstairs.

    As far as the bear situation, I am completely pissed at my dog.

    He is worthless!

    That's pretty damn sad! (The dog... )

    But I have you beat; our lab is a sore-gummed, lame-brained, watery-eyed wreck. 75 pounds of canine retardation, complete with the optional Pace & Lick value pack....

    Seems to me you got a wise dog there - he let the bear know he was there, then I reckon the dog and the bear came to a sensible agreement - 'You don't hassle me, I don't hassle you and neither of us gets chewed or bitten.'

    Bet if that there b'ar had come a runnin' towards you your dog would have been right there behind you.

    Mind you, if the bear does come back, you can always borrow my cat for a day or so. Mind you, you will have to cover the cost of feeding him.
