Fueling and warming up
I got my diesel container and filled it up before I rode on up the hill today. The dozer didn’t need it but I try to keep adding a little at a time to keep the tank as full as possible. I put the fuel in the dozer and started it up to let it warm up a bit.
I had some work on a ditch behind the dozer a short distance so I fixed that up and parked the dozer back in this spot.
And rode the quad runner down to this trail where I walked down it to get some tools I’d left up there and then back up the trail and back on the quad with the tools.
I rode on over to this spot and parked where I was working on an old trail doing some water redirecting work to keep it from washing out the trail.
Old trail work
The trail goes down through here. I fixed the trail up to prevent water running down it and then sprinkled some redwood leaf mulch on the trail to make it look nice. I still have some more work to do here to finish it up in this spot.
Leaving before it got dark today
I was watching my watch to make sure I quit before dark today and drove the quad runner up this road to get out.
Ditch crossing the road
I rode back over to the drainage ditch I repaired this morning that crosses the road here. The drainage ditch is just in front of the quad runner but a bit hard to see as it’s a shallow ditch instead of a deep one so I hope it stays this way.
As I was checking out the work I did there this morning Tom drove up in his side by side so we shot the bull a bit before he continued on up the hill.
Pottery grade blue clay find
I headed on down the hill stopping to check out this old spring. The recent rains have uncovered some real nice blue clay there. A fine deposit of pottery grade blue clay.
The clay is in sheets with the spring water running over it. I have no plans for it, but you never know.
I continued on home and got there just before dark.
That’s pretty cool how the blue clay slides off in sheets.
Thanks for showing it.
