Well, the "Pretorian Outback" would probably mean some "farm" outside Pretoria.

Maybe like the farm they all flock to for Oppikoppi. Sort of an African Woodstock. But mainly an excuse to get really drunk, really stoned, and really dirty.  :imaposer:
Well, wherever it was, it was a good show to watch. I forgot how good looking SA girls were.  :drif:

Not quite as sexy as the young rednecks in their daisy-dukes, cowboy boots, and bikini-tops  :drif:  :imaposer:

Zog, you have been away from ZA too long...!

Some pix to jog Zog's memory:

 

   





APOLOGIES! Hijack off...

Nope. Hijack back on. (sorry immigrant  :peepwall: )

Redneck girls are much better. Let me tell you why.

They don't worry about breaking a nail or getting muddy or greasy or whatever. In fact, if you happen to be driving down the road with a redneck girl beside you and you get a flat. The redneck girl will pass you a beer while she changes it, and while she is about it she'll give the engine a tune-up too. Then when you get her home she'll wash and wax your truck, and show you that trick she does... sucking a tennis ball through a hose pipe  :drif:  :imaposer:
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

This one belongs in the BMW section, under "1200LC Fork stanchion separation issues."  >:D

Do any ice-fishing, Immigrant?

If you try ice fishing, find yourself a couple of experienced Canadian Fish Finders like Mike or Neal:

No, ice fishing is merely an excuse to get horribly drunk (as was clearly demonstrated by these gentlemen) I prefer to get drunk in the comfort of my own home without freezing my balls off. I have tried it a couple of times, but promised myself never again. I've never been so cold in my life

Yeah, ice fishing without a shanty is too cold for me too.

I prefer a shanty with a propane heater.  A dark colored shanty makes your water hole look cool and the propane heater keeps you warm n toasty.

What is the contraption with a 10 year bat tree above?

It is a CO monitor. I saw afterwards the monitor expires after 10 years. So technically I will "never" have to change the batteries since i have to throw the whole unit away when it expires

But thank God for this app. You can start your truck from anywhere in the world and let it warm up a bit while you have breakfast

What does something like that cost?

That stand alone unit costs around $50. I also have a few of these (see pic) around the house that are connected to my alarm system which was $100 each. They also detect smoke. Building code requires a smoke detector in each bedroom, a detector within 10 feet of every bedroom door, one in kitchen, living area, and one close to your mechanical room.  And one CO monitor on each level of the house. They all have to be connected to each other. So if one detects smoke they all go in to alarm and a very nice lady tells you in English and french (voice recording) if smoke or CO was detected and to get the hell out.



But I have the smoke / CO combination installed everywhere where code required smoke only, and then a few stand alone units at various locations. I am paranoid about CO in the house. I have 2 furnaces, a natural gas water heater, natural gas fireplace and a wood pellet stove, and a natural gas radiant heater in the garage that are all sources of CO. They are all vented to the outside, but anything mechanical could malfunction. The vents could also sometimes ice up when very cold outside
I have a monthly fire drill with the kids where we practice where to go and what to take. You may escape the fire but end up in -40C outside in your pajamas and bare feet.
