At least I can sort out any mechanical issues myself....with all the new tech stuff you need a roll back and a mechanic with a diagnostic computer....not my style....

Relationships are obvious: wife, kids... Objects, property, non-guns, I'll just list two. The first is actually several and they are temporary. I love that I live where toys are needed, and I love the toys I have: an Argo, several snowmachines, a raft, a skiff. Using themselves me joy.

The other is my 5.5 acres of heaven. I was fortunate enough to be drawn in a land lottery several years ago. I was able to select and stake out land in a remote area on a picturesque Alaskan lake - very much a wilderness setting. Over the last few years I have been building my cabin. It's a combination steel quonset with timber framing. I am NOT a builder so it's been a matter of YouTubing steps and then trial and error making it work. It is still a work in progress. It probably brings me as much joy as anything I own, and I anticipate that feeling growing in the years to come. These photos are from a trip in October.

Beautiful! Is that an F series Yamaha 4 stroke? I just put one on one of our boats.
Yes. I've had it almost three years now, and I've been very pleased with it. I'm sure you'll like yours too.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
