Mechanical breakdown while forest tending

March 28th, 2016

Almost finished with my forest tending project this year, I guess I just had about an hour left of work when my chainsaw had a breakdown.

Model airplane flying

March 28th, 2016

Last Wednesday we had Bendik and his family visiting us. He had brought his model airplane to show the kids (and me). Here just shown as a small white dot up in the sky

Just landed, walking over to do a second flight. Not so small after all

Swan safari

March 28th, 2016

About a week ago we wanted to have a closer look at the large flock of swans that had gathered on the field just behind our house.

Elin did count count as much as 50-60 swans flying in this flock, and that happened twice.

Manual labour - road work

March 20th, 2016

Using the rake to get the stones back on the road and not on the lawn. This is what I've done (and having the other side of the road left as well)

A bit more to do before finished...

Playing fotball

My #3 playing fotball for the first time down at the local arena

Garden tending at Bjørkelangen

March 20th, 2016

Had to help out my brother in law here the other day with some garden tending. He had some pine trees that needed to be removed from the garden.

Skateboard for the firewood processor

March 20th, 2016

Quite happy with my own invention, a skateboard for the firewood processor. Did fit like a gloove and made the process of mounting and unmounting a whole lot easier.

Picnic last weekend

March 20th, 2016

Last weekend we took a walk over to our neighbour to have a close look at the piles of timber. Elin inspecting the large logs

And Anders doing the same

Marco Rubico quote

March 11th, 2016

In a debate with Donald Trump, Marco Rubico replied

"I'm not interested in being politically correct. I'm interested in being correct."

To allmost all other people in the world except for Donald Trump the perfect thing to say after that would have been "You just got burned". But wether Drumpf is just very smart or simply stupid, I do not know, but nothing anyone else says seems to bother him (except claiming he has small fingers and such).

It's ok, only pride was injured

March 9th, 2016

I got a phone call today from my neighbour "Do you have some time?"...off course I had as long as I could take a photo.

Stuck!

Saved!

Death by climate change

March 9th, 2016

Just above 0 today, not good if you are a really tall snowman. Leaning more and more forward.

Extended lunch - Nordic skiing to Langfoss

March 9th, 2016

Do not expect the snow and the very good skiing condition to last many days, therefore Espen and I decided to have an extended lunch today. From Moe to Langfoss and back, really nice!

Creating snowman - hillbilly style

March 6th, 2016

We decided to create a really high snowman today, and as the saying goes "having the proper equipment is half the job" we decided to use the tractor and the front loader.

Even higher than the tractor. We wanted to go for even bigger, but the snow was actually just a little bit to cold, so it was hard to make really large snowballs.

Langfossdagen 2016

March 6th, 2016

Today it was Langfossdagen, Anders and I decided to go. Since it was expected that it could be hard to find a place to park the car at Tyrihjellmoen, we decided to take the tractor. Had to do an emergency repair of the tractor chain, luckily I had some steel string just lying inside the tractor.

At Langfoss

Took some pictures of the old barn that had burned down yesterday.

Snowman - Solberg style

Yesterday, visiting Espen & co, out with the kids, creating snowman with Solberg style
