Living The Dream

So today, I logged BJ, AH0/WA7WRJ who was operating in the Mariana Islands. I do not normally look people up on QRZ, but for some reason I searched him out just to see what was what. Turns out, he is living the dream, sailing from island to island around the pacific and putting rare parks and islands on the air.

From his QRZ page is a link to a blog and boat tracking page where you can see where he has been and when under sail, where he is going all kind of neat if you ask me.

While sailing is not really my thing, the idea of hopping from island to island and doing some radio does sound rather appealing to a parks guy like me. And while I might not ever be able to do this, its nice to see some are out there living the dream.


Bush Fire

So we have a deer problem here. Feral bastards jump the fence and eat the young trees we have planted. So we decided to raise the fences to keep the bastards out. So being a cheap arse, I am welding on some extensions on the start droppers. Good enough plan, but set the grass on fire and well if that got into the paddock of meter high grass behind us, well, it would have been a nice bush fire. It would be nice to have it burned and not be such a hazard, but I dont want to be responsible for it or burning someones house down. Looks like I need an offsider to keep the fire out while I weld.
