Saturday October 7, 2017 Guerneville CA.
Started out the day bulldozing
Seemed like a good day to do a little bull dozing and charge the dozers battery.
I filled a five gallon container of fuel for the dozer and took it up the hill on my quad runner and put the fuel in the dozer here.
Sure didn’t get far
It started right up and after it warmed up a bit, I headed off, but I didn’t get far.
It wasn’t long before I noticed the tractor had a problem going on which I knew meant the transmission fluid was low. So I pulled over and parked and walked back to where the quad runner was parked, about a quarter mile.
Off for a ride
Nothing to do now but go for a quad runner ride as I didn’t think I had any oil at home.
I rode up to the ridge top where this overlook overlooks the town of Guerneville.
I rode around some roads on the way home.
Inspecting the crossing
I stopped at this crossing to see what I needed to do to improve this as it’s slowly been washing out. I think some steel fence posts driven into the ground to make a dam should improve this crossing.
I drove on and stopped at this creek crossing and added some more rocks. The rocks keep the winter creek water from washing out the crossing.
Still a couple apples left on the tree
When I got down to the bottom of the hill I was thinking an apple would be good so I drove over by these bee hives. The tree there has some apples in it. I was able to reach two of them and they were good.
I continued on back to my house where I sat around for a bit.
My personal dump truck
Eventually I got my little personal dump truck going and went out to the front gate and loaded the dumper with dirt. I hauled the dirt across the property to a place that needed some.
And another project before winter
I did some chair hopping. Late in the day I walked over to our old bridge that is in need of some repairs. This bulkhead rotted away and now the high winter water is washing things out.
I made some plans to fix it which I’ll be doing soon before winter sets in.
And that was my day.
I’m sure you heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away………..you had two so I hope you didn’t wake with a tummy ache!
