970 KG

I've got a bit of a reputation around work for being good at breaking stuff and I finally got to break something that needed to be broken. Anytime I have an excuse to use a sledge hammer I am a happy camper. This weekend I finally got to smash the brick planter at my grandma's house. She's been talking about wanting it gone for some time now and this weekend was the time. My grandfather and I got to work on it Saturday morning in the rain and it took us about 3 hours to get it done but its done. We used my truck because it doesn't have a cap and it has overload springs. Well it needed them that day. We took it all to the dump in one load and even the dump guy was impressed with the load we had on. We put 970kg or about 2140 lbs in the back of my old Dodge. Amazingly enough it didn't seem to have much trouble with it, the only time I noticed the weight was under braking.

I haven't had much time for blogging lately but I'll try to keep some content up here. We are getting our kitchen table tonight and we're off to Edmonton for the weekend to do some paintballing. I may have some good bruise pictures after that ;)
