Start of a new year and I am still lazy

Well it is 16 days into the new year and i still have not done much, no fishing, no gaming,Β  no traveling and have not seen any movies.

I plan this year to get my youtube channel up to100 video’s so that is only 66 video’s.
i think i have 2-3 old Wot video’s that need editing, I also have a large game collection to pick from it’s just finding some thing i like to play.Β  I also maybe should not count the time lapse video’s lol as that is cheating.

Fishing trip washout

So last weeks fishing trip ended with the tinnie(boat) still on the trailer before deciding its before to go home.

I had planed to go fishing on the Saturday as it was ment to be the last chance that my fishing buddy would get to fish as he started a new job, now there was a couple hours window on the Saturday where the wind was not going to be a issue but rain was forecast on off all day, we had planed to fish Curries river reservoir as its near by and most the rivers we fish are to high with all the rain Tasmania has had.

I had the tinnie backed up ready to push off when I got a txt saying it is raining hard in the town we live so I replied its raining out here and stop being a girl lol. I jumped back in the car to get out of a light rain waiting for the txt to say my friend was not coming when the hail and rain hit. I got a new txt just saying thunder and lighting, but I did not need a txt as I could hear the thunder over the radio and see the sky light up and the wind had picked up a lot with very strong wind gusts.

So no fishing that day but I did get round to grabbing GTA5 πŸ™‚ and with luck this Sunday should be a good day to fish with my friend who has this weekend off or my dad πŸ™‚ I just hope I get to push the tinnie of the trailer this time.

server died AGAIN

So the VPS that host’s this site died again(looking at you chicagovps.net ) and I can not find any of the newer backups I made πŸ™ so this one will have to do, I guess I can give a quick recap of events lol.

I had to send back my Asus graphic card due to it artifacting and so far the RMA process has gone good, I am hoping they contact me some time this week with a update.

I have not done any fresh water fishing the season yet as it has been very wet and cold, I have been a bit lazy much to the dismay of my dad and fishing buddy so I guess I should make some plans soon.

Gaming
still playing Planetside 2 even if I am starting to tire of the bugs that got added in the latest round of patch’s(most fixed) and its not helping with the server balance in my time zone, also the 4th faction is pushing the balance to silly levels. I think its time to put a time limit of say 15 minutes on faction swapping

New fishing season

With the new fishing season only 19 days away I have plenty to do before I am ready, I have to do some work on the boat trailer and look at the outboard as its not pumping water out the tell tale like it should.

Boat trailer need a new winch putting on as the wire rope has some broken strands and is half a meter short, I need to weld some new roller supports on and then add the rollers to make launching and retrieving better from bush ramps. I also need to put new safety chains on.

The out board is a old mercury 20hp that runs very well but stopped pumping water so I changed the impeller that was old and brittle and also replaced the impeller housing as it was stuffed. I put it all back together only for a very small amount of water coming out the tell tale, my dad who was there when I put it back together thinks the pipe going into the impeller housing in not hitting the rubber stopper to seal it and that its just squirting most of the water up the inside of the leg and as the fishing season was closed and I had other things to do that day I left it so now I have to fix it lol.

I also need to go shopping for more fishing gear πŸ™‚
