If I wanted to hear metal, I'd just stick the camera outside next to the Exhaust pipe and turbo.

We don't have gators around here but we have tons of snakes. If a couple of them bit you, there's a 50/50 chance you would not make it back to the truck alive if you were alone. Hence why I don't like to get out of the machine if its during the summer!

I remember on a job a couple years ago, I flipped over a stump with the bucket and atleast 5 copperheads came flying out
I really don't like snakes either...

Found a bunch of Eels too.

Sounds like you need a pair of snake boots.. They dont bother me, as long as I got something I can kill them with near by..

And that turtle.. Was that thing alive? I had one of them bad boys pop up when I was getting ready to get into a pond with my waders on to rake the moss(thats all we were pulling out, I posted pics of it here) that Dad couldnt reach on the machine, as soon as I pulled my left wader on that huge freakin turtle popped up, and I pulled my waders right back off, bulls#it if I am goin in the water with that thing in there...

yeah it was alive! Its neck was a good 3" in diameter... that thing was huge ans Pissed off!


So today I wiggled some levers for another 8 hours and managed to get something done. Felt good to be out of the mud... well for a few hours

got the pond dam cleared off.


little cove cleaned out





then cleared a little section that stuck out in the field




go go juice





ok I could not stand the dry dirt


I had to go unclogg a spot in my creek channel



Then I took a walk to make sue there were no more jams in the creek







oops...



so on the way home I stopped by a pond that I built back when I was in High school, it has be coolest natural color of any pond I've seen.











my camera needs a rest now
