Nice machine Swan, I ran a 289 for a season. It was a beast on the dirt, but the factory tracks were brutal in the snow. Put in a few hundred studs per track and got through the winter.

I decided to buy the smaller 14k gooseneck and sold dad this bumper pull trailer. That way the excavator and the skiddy each have their own trailers and I have a backup trailer that way.

Dad and I partnered on the skiddy. I didn't want one, but occasionally need one.. Dad didn't want to learn how to run the excavator or deal with excavator type work. So I sub skiddy only work to him and peel 10% off the top of those job. And then when I need it on my own jobs, I either rent it from him, or sub him out.

I was paying him cash under the table last year and this setup makes way more sense. Then he can go write off a home office, a truck, the shop, etc.

In economic Clownworld several states are issuing new stimi checks. CA is pumping out $17bn worth. But inflation…

Now Iran wants to join the BRICS+ new G8 as well as food exporter Argentina. The tide is turning against the old collapsing self destructing perverse decadent Weimar 2.0 G7.

In military Clownworld four battalions of hardened Chechen warriors are heading to Ukraine. I’m sure their pronouns are “sir” and their uniforms are not unisex. While idiots like the Worzel Gummidge lookalike Johnson and the closeted cuck Trudeau mock Putin. The UK warns Beijing about Taiwan while the madmen and psychopaths clap and cheer. Such buffoonery from these puppets and frauds.

From all the trips I've made to Whistler I have one lousy pic:
Not even sure this drop still exists. Used to be on Dirt Merchant. Haven't been back since they reworked the trail.

I remember this. Skurry launch. Dirt to aline was always my favourite run. We once committed an entire day to dialing in that line. Good times.
