Saturday January 14, 2023 Guerneville CA.
It was raining this morning again. But at around noon it got real heavy for a bit, like coming down in buckets.
Chain saw prep
I also sharping the chain up.
I got that done and the rain was letting up some ,turning to showers.
It seemed like a good idea to put on my heaviest rain gear so I did, just in case, as it was supposed to rain some more.
It was raining hard as I approached the hilltops, but soon let up for a bit.
This is where I left off the other day when the chain fell off the bar, so that’s where the work needed to be done.
Oil Can Flat
I continued on up that road, doing some ditching along the way, here and there, where it was needed, to get the rain water off the road.
It started to rain some more as I approached the hill top again, so I buttoned up, or rather zipped up.
Headed to my Cousin’s place
Just around the corner from that spot I ran into this big fallen fir tree that was blocking the road. It was too big for me to get off the road, but maybe I can make a trail around it. There was a lot of dirt on the log, so cutting it was likely going to cause my chain to not be very sharp if I wasn’t careful. I cut it up a bit, but then had a hard time moving these cut logs off the road. I used the shovel as a pry bar and almost broke the handle on it.
I was headed on up to the Top of the World, but had to cut a couple more small trees off the road to get there. And I did a bunch more ditching.
Headed on home
Since it was getting dark and I was beat and the saw was dull and these guys were going to take some time, I turned around and headed for home in the pouring down rain. It was a good thing I wore the heavy rein gear.
New video on Baby Turkey Vultures
I had these video clips of baby turkey vultures. So, I made them into a video for YouTube as most people have never seen baby turkey vultures in their nests or heard them.
