Default Soo....anyone need the services of a digger driver?

Just been up north and well, had to leave in a hurry. My mate Rangi found a old Kauri log, asked me to dig it up and I thought we struck oil!!!!!!!!!!

Hopefully I can find a petrol station open!

Anyways, if you have a very rural place and need the services of a digger driver, preferably for a few months and don't have to tell anyone I'm there.

Anywhere remote is good, Chatham Islands or Palmerston North.



Some Auckland petrol stations run out of fuel after burst pipe - BBC News

Most Kiwi thing to happen this year!

Just amazing isn't it, how vulnerable we all are to the smallest little blip. The country grinds to a halt and falls to its knees because of some some dumbo who was doing a bit of digging around in the undergwoth.

The panic became very real for me today when I realised I was running on petrol fumes empty and nearest petrol station was coned off.

It's not Mike Nolan is it?

Luckily we learned from that incident a few years ago where one high voltage switch took half of Aucklands grid because there wasn't any redundancy. I actually welcome the governments new approach to easing Auckland congestion and getting the city on their bikes and busses. Finally a National government policy that is delivering for New Zealand.

Time to raid the lawnmower petrol can hoping for enough to get to an election box?

Should be going over to Oz in the next two weeks, so hoping it's all sorted by then.
