Forest trail work
My chain saw needed some gas but I didn’t have any so I went to Guerneville and got some gas for my saw and some for my weed mower.
I filed the chainsaw teeth and fueled and oiled the saw and loaded the tools I would need on the quad runner.
Clearing the old trail
Here’s the quad at the start of the trail at the bottom. Since I have a chainsaw, this will be the first time the quad runner has been on this trail as there are logs across the trail that need to be cut and removed to get by.
Good place to work
Lots of sticks on the trail
Almost ran off the trail
I was only fifty feet from the top of the trail when I ran off the trail, well almost. I had to man handle the quad back on the trail to keep it from going down on the right. Needless to say I did a bit of dirt moving in this spot so this doesn’t happen again.
Started back down the trail
At the end of the trail
I checked the mile gauge on the quad and found it read .3 miles, a bit shorter than I thought it was, but long enough.
Lots of water
I sat down for a break when I got home to relax for a bit. When I tried to get up I could hardly move, but I worked on it and slowly things got moving again, although with a bit of pain. Such is older age and hard work, keeps me young or at least healthier.
One last thing
In the evening I puttered around the yard doing some watering and put some fertilizer on my young citrus plants and before I knew it it was getting dark.
