Dirt bike ride day
My brother Barry was coming by around noon today to go out on a dirt bike ride in the fire area.
When he arrived he said plans have changed as we needed to go up into the fire burn area and meet up with a rehab fire guy that will be fixing up all the fire roads and fire breaks to get ready for winter.
As it was we were able to do that and go for our dirt bike ride. We sorta combined both of them.
So we rode up into the hills and were fortunate to run into the rehab guys right away so didn’t need to hunt for them.
Headed to Hulbert Creek
We’d meet up with those guys a few more times today but for now we could go on our dirt bike ride through the burned area so we did going down this road and we rode down to Hulbert creek to look for roads they’d bulldozed and might need some rehab work before winter sets in.
We were looking for the end of a road that comes down from the top to see if the fire dozers tore it up or not. We had to get out and go for a walk to check it out and it appeared the dozers didn’t come down this far.
Visiting the Bushes and Buchanans
We headed to the Bush place and had a nice visit with them. There house didn’t burn.
From there we rode up to the Buchanan place and said hi to Dave and his son Kelly at their house which was spared by the fire largely because their neighbors protected the house when the fire came through as there were no fire guys in the area at the time.
Then we rode up to Kathleen’s place but no one was home., except some of her animals.
Getting a drink of water
We were thirsty and needed a drink of water so we headed back towards my place to get a drink of water.
An oh oh
No one’s home at the Robert place
We continued to Robert’s house but no one was home so we started back down the road. the fire trucks had left and the the dozer guy moved in to see about puling the excavator out. We talked with the dozer operator and he said they’d bring in another dozer tomorrow with a winch on it.
We rode on home stopping at a couple places to check stuff out.
Barry took off for home and I tended my chickens and did a bit of chair hopping before going in for the night.
Nice dirt bike ride.
