We got the stove up the bush! After all the worrying and stressing it is now done and Dad is working on the pipes for the wet back as we speak (or so I imagine…). It was a drive-in weekend last weekend for the road maintenance of the 4×4 road. So there where lots of guys who after they’d done all the work on the road came over to our hut to get the stove sorted.
Dad lashed two big poles to the stove so it was (relatively) easy to get a grip and off they went! It only took about 15min in total and was done nice and smooth with no problems (v. minor hitch when a wee dog decided to walk underneath it *rollseyes* cue frantic yell from one of the guys ‘DON’T PUT THE STOVE DOWN – THE DOGS UNDERNEATH!!’).
I filmed the whole thing and created this nifty little video from it *grin* and yes I may have played with it a little *hee* you won’t know till you watch though!
