I topped up in Sumas Wa. at $3.44.9 usd a gallon of diesel today. 20.588 gallons  $71.01 usd , or $90.64 ca. Would have cost $101.23 ca.in Abbotsford @ $1.29.9 ca. I would really hate to pay $5 a gallon for diesel.

Yeah, it hurts.   Good thing it was the company truck.  It’s a lot easier on the pocket book that way

Have you guys had any good weather over there lately? Snowing every other day here now and it's been cold too.  Today felt like the middle of January. Looks like the snow is settling in there.

I've gotten to where I don't look at the pump any more. I fill up at the cardlocks all the time anyways so I don't know what I'm paying a lot of the time anyways. Still hurts when I get the mail though lol.

Weather was wet and miserable for a month or better, now a low pressure system is parked over the interior and it’s been clear and nice.  Frost in the morning and 50-60 during the day.  I hear telling of horrible winters and mild winter, guess we can tally it up in June, 

 

Fuel has been getting more expensive, and it won’t be getting better for some time for us, oh well

We've been in the 30-40 range for day time highs now for the last 3 weeks or so and lows of around 20-25. Ready for a change here. Snow in sept is not a welcome sight. 

We seem to be getting later falls, and later springs.  Which has its own problems.  

 

Hope it turns around for you.

Great Pics!

 

Here's a couple I snapped over Greenland about 2 weeks ago. Greenland seems to be cloud covered most of the time but occasionally it's clear. Lots of icebergs and some cool glaciers. It's hard to capture with an iPad what your eye can from 45,000':

Quite the glacier there, and a lot of calving from the looks of it

On the C or super C if there's a hole for the rockshaft arm through the seat box its most likely a Super. Can look at the engine . C113 is a C, C123 is a super C

Isn’t the brake/clutch pedal arms curved on a Super also?

C has band brakes, super C is disk. I forgot that difference. Not sure on the pedals

Interesting it has a Perkins diesel. Was that factory? Just assumed it would have an IH engine.

I just don’t know, and I also don’t know if they know what they are talking about.

 

i don’t even know what time frame that would be from

It shipped from the factory (Hamilton Ontario, Canada) with a British built International BD154 engine. The sheet metal has not been modified so I doubt the engine has been changed.

Sorry guys, I dropped this for awhile

 

I am currently in Minnesota visiting my parents and taking my eldest son for another surgery.  All is well and I hope to post more

A side note, I am working on breathing life into dads 460.  And it is not wanting to cooperate
