Now this may sound blasphemous...but a Datsun Z with a trailer hitch...equalizer hitch preferrable....pulling a single axle (tandem axle better) stake trailer...or maybe a trailer with a 'cap' and roof racks.

To get into rugged, traction limited areas...the Z should be lifted and have oversize possibly mudder tires (depending on terrain). No 4WD could be an issue...but a HD Warn winch attached to the front should alleviate this issue.

A snorkel kit for fording streams...

I think I'm on to something here....no not on something...but on to something !

If there still is a space problem for loading larger game...well let us reverse back to the old days...strap the large game onto the front fender of the Z.
Have you seen the snorkel kit for a T54 tank. A bit less than 20 foot. The Russians do river bed crossings, saves on deploying river crossing bridges.

Today is National Cheeseburger Day, so I grilled burgers stuffed with cheese and mushrooms on my (gasp) little Weber Q gas grill.
First time using gas for grilling in several years.
I have a Weber Q grill and a Pentax Q camera.

I like our Q1200 Weber Grill. Awesome little cooker. It is all my wife and I have uses all year. Unless we cook on out little Lodge cast iron grill. Great use for smaller fallen branches. We have a larger Weber 3 burner grill but hardly ever use it. I don't think that we have even fired it up this year. The little Weber is handy and I usually connect it to a 20 pound propane tank.

Now, if Rupert had said that I would have replied with something like "well, you should be able to tell. I'm sure you can remember the real ones from your youth".

That's what I would have said to Jim, but I certainly wouldn't say something like that to you, Bob.
No sir.
It wouldn't even cross my mind.

It's a good thing it didn't cross your mind or I would have canceled the Burger's bacon order I planned to send you.

"City" bacon?

Is that made from city pigs?

Nope, never have seen a snorkel kit for a Russian tank. At 20 feet, that snorkel is longer than the Z car. Being of Russian manufacture I bet the snorkel kit weighs an awful lot, but will have been designed to take a 'kicking' .

Surprisingly, even though my dad was the chief breadwinner in the family and brought home the bacon, by working for many years in a meatpacking plant....I've never been one to have too much bacon.

I will admit, nothing beats the smell of bacon cooking along with coffee brewing when out at the campsite .

I prefer back bacon to side bacon. We Canucks call 'back bacon', what Americans call "Canadian bacon' . I don't know why that is and I'm a history buff.

I'm finding all this bacon talk, recipes and pictures makes me drool.... in regards to Canadian Bacon by Rob, Racer and others. My mouth waters whenever I've reading this thread and bacon is the topic.

So much so, I think I'm going to ask my wife to put an order in for some. [COLOR="Silver"]

The T54 snorkel provided the air for the engine and for the crew. If the engine stalled under water they would have one or two chances the restart. If that failed the escape route was to open the driverís hatch, at the front. The driver would escape. Then the other crew, in order, commander, gunner and loader would each need to follow, swimming out through the position where each one before them had gone. If any one got caught they and those who were meant to follow would drown.

Back bacon is made from the loin, located near the back. I've made it several times and to me it's pretty much just ham.
Side bacon is from the belly. I think it's called streaky bacon in the UK.

It would be good to be the driver, and not the loader.

It would be better to not stall the engine.

It would be best to be a logistics manager 20 miles behind the front and not inside a tank - ever.

In Australia we had go to the service station refilling. That interrupts cooking with a trip out. The Taiwan bottles were about 1 foot diameter and mid thigh height, a good size to fit on a rack on the delivery manís motor bike.
I try to always have a spare full bottle in the shed. Which reminds me... I don't have a spare full bottle in the shed right now!

I speak American fluently, but I have a passing familiarity with some foreign languages (French, English, Spanish, and German).
Every Fall we have many custom harvesters from South Africa. I can always identify Afrikaans when I hear it. I can identify it because it's the only non-Asian language I hear of which I can identify no words whatsoever.
"Goeie more" = "Good morning"
"Dankie" = "Thank you"
"Ja-nee" = Technically "yes-no" but really works in almost every sentence or on it's own.

Some Estate cars in the UK are also known as Shooting Brakes. Think the difference between a Shooting Brake and an Estate car is determined by use. Although I'm guessing.
I haven't heard that term for a long time. In the fifties, a buddy of my dad's had an Austin FX3 like this stock picture it was based on the British Taxi of the time. It seemed enormous to me as a 9 year old.
