What did you get upto today

Postby dales133 » Fri Dec 18, 2015 5:36 am

Thought id kick off an off topic thread to see what we all get upto in our spare time.
Today we launched the boat at queenscliff witch is the heads to port phillip bay witch is the large body of water off melborne .
Outside the heads is the southern ocean.... nothing but tasmania in the way to antartica.
We were chasing snapper but the current was running crazy and had the wind against the tide .
The whole experience was pretty ordinary and the only fish caught were a couple of banjo sharks... xaught by me
Biggest was about 15 pound i guess.
The haze in the backgrounds bushfires;we could hardly see 100 feet today
Temp was 38c and 42 tomorrow with even stronger winds so total fire bans and no fishing!
Heres a pic of today on the water.

Looks like a lot of fun!! I will have to wait a bit to go fishing. The ice on the lakes is not thick enough to roll the teardrop on(hole cut in under floor bin to fish through). :x Ice fishing- A version of winter camping.
Maybe in two weeks. :twisted:

Nice day here. -6°F today and 5" of new snow, but the sun came out with a promise that someday things will allow us to camp again.

That is what the campfire thread has been for a quite some time now.. although it is mostly Kerry and I now. Most of our previous posters have moved on to Face Book :(

Sent the wife up to NY for Christmas with her kids, while I stayed in Florida to spend time with one of mine and do some stuff on the truck and camper. So far this week I've changed the oil, all filters, cleaned the entire intake system, replaced both VCT solenoids on my old 2004 F150. Today I started repairing the idiotic rear door opening system that Ford put on these trucks. It is a disgrace. The doors open by a bicycle brake type cable. Except bikes use metal containment systems, Ford used plastic, which in 11 years disintegrated and the doors would not open. So I got the aftermarket aluminum containers in the mail this afternoon and got the passenger side rebuilt. Tomorrow I'll do the driver's side.

Other than that, I've been enjoying the ability to eat what I want, watch what I want, but I do miss her and she comes back on New Years eve- our anniversary. I do hate the 85 degree weather though. I like COLD!
