Tree on Be rude link to mad if has been dealt to.
Then went up to corners to start on some trouble spots on section 3

The Caretaker is Awesome!
I am not usually a great fan of this kind of art (especially the chainsaw stuff) because most of the time its a waste of a nice tree but this one has come out particularly well. I like it.

Oh hey before I forget.
There is a dirty great tree across the road just before Split Enz. Not sure if thats your thing or not.
She's a big sucker though so could be quite tricky.

No worries ... I keep meaning to take some time of work and come out to give you a hand but we are so damn busy I can't see it happening this side of Xmas. What recession?

poor weather conditions yesterday were replaced with great ones today.
started work trimming Katore jumps yesterday and today fixed Hill road and Tawa rd for the shuttle.
shuttle is running for the school holidays (weather permitting) and I think it kicked off its Daylight saving evening shuttles this evening.
