A normal day on the farm.
Just like an everyday chore, working on the farm can be a lot of hard work and fun. Driving All Terrain Vehicles, milking cows, feeding the chooks, collecting eggs.
Going down to check the fence line.
Some of the jobs we do on farm and cattle stations is check the fence line for any damage, due to Kangaroos, Wild Buffalo, Wild boar, and our own cattle. Most farms have flat land, some have gullies, hills and crevices due to rain. There are a lot of hidden dangers that you always have to be prepared.
Falling in hidden crevices
Out of the blue mate, the wheel fell in a crevice, tips the ATV (All Terrain Vehicle) to one side, then fall in another crevice, we rolled, pinning my arm under windscreen rail. Not far from help but to far to yell for help. Called on the radio for help.....
First response arrives
Lucky we had a handheld UHF CB radio, we sent a call out for help and a nearby was a 1st response personal was driving home from work. She called it the SAVITREK Multi-Purpose blanket, she purchased on the internet. She covered us in the turned over ATV and helped us out, then, she placed one on the ground as it was wet and the other over us and looked after our wounds.
