Saturday June 6, 2015 Guerneville CA.
My day started off with my older brother Mike bringing his computer by as it was having some serious dying problems. After looking at the computer and checking it out, I determined his video card was getting too hot and shutting down. It turned out the video card cooling fan wasn’t working. My brother thought he had another video card back at his house, so he took off just after noon.
I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do today? I was thinking of going kayaking, maybe in the evening. And I needed to take a ride up the hill and check the spring water system to see if there was enough water this year and just make sure it was all working well.
Checking out the spring water system
Water storage tanks
I checked the water tanks to see how full they were and they were full to the top which was good.
Measuring the water coming from the springs
I measured the two water sources coming into the system. One had three gallons a minute and the other had just under two gallons a minute. That means there is about five gallons a minute coming into the tanks from the springs, or three hundred gallons an hour.
Something moved up ahead by the tree
There seemed to be a good flow of water this year. I continued on up the hill to check out how the water springs looked and went on this road. I stopped to take some pictures of the road and the wild flowers and just barely noticed something move just below the center of the picture to the right of the big tree.

Rode around checking out some roads too
As long as I was riding around up there, I rode around and checked the road for downed trees stuff that was blocking the road from the storms of last winter.
It was after six PM when I returned home and I was tired out, so I decided to stay home and not go to the river to kayak.
I did some watering in the yard and checked out my van for what supplies I have in it and what I will need to resupply it for an upcoming trip to the Jarbidge NE. area in a couple weeks.
That pretty much wrapped up my day.
