” Who is this Planker ”

Well I guess it’s not that hard to guess who this is, Merv has been on the tractor for the last couple of weeks seeding and had few issues yesterday with the machine he was using but I’ll let him tell the story about that. This is a pic he mailed to me after we had suggested that we should get into this new planking craze and this is is Mervs effort. He says once youv’e done it you get hooked on it and can’t stop doing it.I am looking forward to more of his planking adventures.

    Wouldn’t that be “planker” hodgy – Merv is pretty hot on the spelling. He sent me a shot soon after that to show that the boss had updated the heads-up display on the tractor to ban any further planking – the new technology on farm equipment is amazing!

        Apparently that’s not Merv either, it’s Aron!! Merv’s effort is damn near perfect!

    Hey Muzz, If it isn’t Merv it sure does look like him. I think Arron is just a name he uses when he gets sick of being called Merv…… hang on those fingers aren’t as stumpy as Mervs?? fooled poor old Jamie as well … ahhhhh doesn’t matter anyway once a planker always a planker I say. Hey don’t you mean Arron, remember Mervs pretty hot on the spelling he he.

      Mark would have some great shots of himself planking whilst in free fall!

        Unfortunately I don’t Dave!

        When you are in the planking position in freefall you are in a head down dive doing 180 mph and if the camera man is to stay with you he is also in that same position, in which case the helmet mounted camera would not be pointing at the person in front.

        No doubt if you set out to get a shot of freefall planking there would be a way to do it, which would probably entail the camera man going out first and doing an upside down track, which would look like an upside down plank and then you would have to fly over the top of him in the plank position.

        Could be done…but not inclined! 🙂

        Hey Dave , I think Mark and Merv would make a great sky dive planking team, Mark being the planker and Merv rolling head over toe trying to get a shot he he he. Even I would do another jump to see that !!
