Put STOL on an old airplane, double the HP with the turbine and hang on… this airplane always WOW's me, also some pict in the series moving a stove with a jet ranger

I'd take fog over the bushfire smoke haze we have here in Sydney at the moment. Its finally starting to clear but it was real bad for the last week or so.

Peeg mill stank is a special kind of stank. Nasty.

The stink coming from the mill is a cover story. That smell is the city. :P

What interesting with the fog is how it localizes as well as the temperature difference inside and outside of it. Yesterday I road to Dundarave. At Park Royal is was somewhat warm. At the Dundarave pier the visibility over the ocean was a couple hundred feet and it was chilly. The people there left pretty quick when the fog rolled in.

This is like living in Port McNeil.

Fog crept back into the city tonight after a beauty day..

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

I took the plane from Castlegar into Vancouver a few days ago and I thought I had landed in Beijing for a minute.

Then when I flew to Beijing on Friday there was a report on the news that planes were being delayed but it burned off in time and I was fine.

Do you have a sweet waterfront place? I can hardly hear them where I am…

I hear them from my place over in East Van, and I'm a ways south of the water. I find the the horns almost soothing :drunk:

Rode around Stanley Park the other night. No one around, dense fog and the horns going off every 30 seconds. Kinda surreal.
