Tuesday September 3, 2019 Port Orford Oregon Sixes River
Sixes river shuttle
Yesterday Steve and I decided to do the upper Sixes river kayaking down from 4 miles up at a place called Edson down to highway 101 at a place where the Grainger’s is where the river crosses the highway.
Walking the boats
Ready to get out and walk
That was a good trip and wore us out nicely so bed was early this night. The walking we did wasn’t too bad and I’d do that trip again as it’s a fine river to yak in. We were the only ones in boats on the river as we didn’t see any others during the trip.
Computer repair day
Today we needed to rest up a bit. I went over to Steve’s to see if I could get his computer going, but he didn’t have any of the disks or backup stuff and he’d trashed his hard drive so I wasn’t having much luck.
Another messed up computer
He drove down to where he works and the guy there gave him one of his old computers for us to get going if I could. That computer was even more massed up then Steve’s but at least there was a backup copy on the hard drive but it took a long time to get things cleaned up enough to make things work.
For awhile I thought the guys computer just wasn’t going to start the reload as it just wouldn’t go but I tried enough times that it finally started the reload to back to factory.
I got the computer loaded back to factory and then we started to get the Windows downloads we needed to bring it up to date and that’s where I left it as that could take a couple days or so. But at least it’s doing it.
I told Steve we need to kayak tomorrow as I didn’t want to spend all day working on computers for two days in a row.
So that’s it for another nice day just messing around with computers. I treat fixing computers as just another game.
