« on: November 01, 2006, 10:31:36 PM »
I have started our countdown again to the next annual pigroast. This year the first Saturday in August is on the 4th! Start making your plans now!   

Remember, you can always see the date and the number of days in the left hand column under our sponsors. :)  We will see you there!

Dozer?   Ice?    crossing?   You're going to drive a dozer over a frozen something?   what is going to be under it?

Do I have to suggest to you that you wear a helium balloon?

What's the Polar Dozer going to be doing for those of us who couldn't make the Pigroast? If you don't mind me asking? I like anything pertaining to bulldozers. I used to watch my granddaddy on his anytime I got a chance. One is on my list of things to buy.

Yours sounds like an adventure in the making.

I would keep worrying about the "almost".  How many miles is it to the bottom?

Marcel,  I been thinking 'bout Furby.  If you were to fatten that squirrelly little rascal up a little bit, He would come in real handy when you needed some steady pulling done.  Feed him some grits and he'll be in shape for the top of the world in no time at all.  :)

 Don , Once the dozer is on Sommerset Island , that should be in the middle of march ( if there is enough ice to cross ) there will be an air strip to build next summer .
 There needs to be at least three feet of ice .. Having gone through the ice once .. Well I actually went through twice ..  ::) I now have a little trouble with  * should about hold anything * ... or .. yep its good  ::)    :o 
  Asy .. what is an " Antipodean  "    ???     A seal roast  can be arranged
Tom ,
  I think one would need a lot more then grits , he be a little bit on the small size .  How much you figure he can pull  ???
 How many miles to the bottom .. Dont rightly now .. and between you and me .. I dont really care to find out .  ;)
