Today's GPP:

My dad and I tore down a 2x5 meter reinforced concrete wall with just sledgehammers, crowbars, moil point rods and bolt cutters, later we hauled said wall away in wheelbarrows and loaded the rubbles onto a truck. Of course all this was done while wearing thick flannel work jackets and watch caps, which made me feel like an urban lumberjack :lol:

Working with my dad today made me wish I could bring him to the gym just see how much he could pull from the floor. The guy have worked hard labour jobs all his life and as a result his big and strong as fuck.

Later he and I enjoyed 1kg smoked tofu, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies and lots of gravy.

All in all a good day! Lots of smashing shit up, heavy pulling and pushing, high fives and being really manly :wink:

Thanks Phil :) I just hate screwing up my back because of a stupid thing like that.

I haven't posted any recent pics in a long time. Working on it thought, but I've got no cam atm.
