Quad runner ride
I saw my brother Barry out in the front yard this morning as he pulled in in his truck.
He had his chain saws and took a quad up in the hills to do some forest fire rehab work. I said I’d follow and find him up there after I got it going.
On a fast
Since I’m on a fast I didn’t have to eat and only had a cup of hot water to replace my coffee.
My quad started right up so I headed up into the hills to find Barry. His rig didn’t leave much for tracks but I knew what he intended to do so I caught up with him after a bit.
Big pile of dirt
Top of the World
Then we walked down to this fire break from where we where parked to where the dozer operator cut deep water bars a bit deep. So he was tuning them down a bit so he could ride his dirt bike up this road which is known as the Goat Trial, very steep.
Here he is doing another water bar. We worked our way down this steep road fixing things. In truth he fixed most of it and I watched as I’m on a fast and have to watch not to expend too much energy. I did help a little and the walk back up this road was a good work out.
Trees to cut
On the way home I stopped and picked some late winter apples as I want to make some vinegar tonight with the peeling.
I washed them off good and peeled them putting the peelings in a big jar covered with water and will let them sit for a few weeks before removing the peelings. That makes alcohol. Then it sits a few more weeks to let it turn to vinegar. Hope that works out as I haven’t done this before.
I still had an hour or so when we got back to my house so I did some chair hopping and just enjoyed the rest of the day.
