I am going to be pretty busy when I get home so thought I would get everything up to date now.
This week there was a dead bear on the highway at the end of our drive, looks like it had been hit by a vehicle. The next day the dogs were in the bush barking and going mad, they came back and sat on the porch and it was then that Sue saw why, they had found another bear, this time alive, and obviously scared it had climbed a tree to get away from them. Once everything had quietened down again the bear sloped off into the bush. Craig also seen a deer in our drive one morning when leaving for work.
Sue also got me a permit today to allow me to cut down trees for firewood, so I got the permit, got the chainsaw, got the axe, got the checked shirt just got to get the rest of the gear (watch the video).

Left last Sunday to run an empty up to Pine Falls Mb, switch for a loaded one and deliver Brampton, On Wednesday at 4.00am. I then loaded that one in Scarborough for a delivery in South Dakota on Monday which would mean 3 days layover so they got me to drop that in our Brampton terminal pick up an empty and go load that in Listowel for delivery to Hazleton, Pa the next day. I again switched trailers there and took the loaded one back to Brampton and on Friday morning switched again with a trailer loaded with two deliveries in Winnipeg on Sunday.
All completed and back home Sunday lunch time, 7400 miles this month and it`s only the 16th.
Maybe I should be looking for a load south if it doesn`t warm up here. It has been so wet that everything was starting to feel damp so we lit the fire for a bit!!
