Saturday December 5, 2020 Guerneville CA.
The day was overcast and cool when I went out to take care of the chickens this morning. I looked at the thermometer and it was 48 degrees F. so wasn’t really that bad.
Rode up into the hills
Tooling down the road
I’m going up an old logging skid road here which is a lot steeper than the picture looks, almost too steep for me. I’ll back down the hill with the blade down to smooth out the road. I did a lot of that on this fire break today. I also put water drains in them.
It was half dark and getting darker quick but the quad runner was up the hill and over a bit so I had to walk up this real steep skid road. I was puffing and sweating by the time I got to the top and on the main road. The dozer was only a few hundred yards down the main road but it was getting darker fast and the quad’s headlight didn’t work. It was dark enough I had to lighten up this picture so you could see it.
I made it back to the quad and rode on down the hill carefully keeping both eyes open for the boggy man.
I only ran off the road once and fortunately I ran onto another road which was alright except when I ran over the twelve inch diameter log across the road I didn’t’ see when coming back on the right road. It happened fast and the quad jumped in the air and I was ok and was able to keep on going. Maybe there’s worse things than the boggy man up there.
Anyway I continued on home and made it ok.
I checked on the chickens and shut them up for the night.
