Van wire work
I’d been looking at the wire rats nest under the dash. That’s what mechanics call something like this. I decided I could clean this up a bit and besides I needed to clean it up to figure out which wires are the burned up ones and where the wires go. Some of the wires are no longer needed so I can remove them, about half of them used to go to other gauges and radios and things that got changed out over the years.
Chopper makes a lot of noise
Once I had those wire messes cleaned up I needed a break. The state park next door has been doing forest fire rehab work for a couple weeks now with a big chopper that makes a lot of noise.
So I thought I’d ride my quad runner up to the entrance to see what I could see.
Here’s the front gate that says the park is closed. There’s a flag lady there that makes sure no one goes by when the chopper comes in with a load so I had a nice chat with her while waiting for the chopper to arrive with another load, about one load every four minutes she said.
Just need to deal with it
The lady said they’d be about another 3 weeks or so. The noise is sorta bothersome as when the chopper comes in you can’t talk to anyone until it leaves at my house. I keep telling myself, eventually they will leave and I’ll still be here. Peace.
I went back to my house and did some chair hopping preparing for the next step in the van repairs.
Some wires are no longer used, but which
I spent a good deal of time trying to determine where and what a few of the wires are for. Some of the wires aren’t being used but I’m not sure which ones don’t need to be hooked up yet. I’ll likely have to hook the battery back up to figure some of them out.
Electric fan wires
Enough for the day
I did some more chair hopping and then closed up the van for the day.
Stomping raspberry plants
In the late evening I mostly chair hopped around the yard but I did do a couple of things. The raspberry plants are over growing my blueberry patch so I stomped on them to slow them down. I need to get around to cutting them back. I also ate what strawberries where ripe.
I pulled the head out of the ground and took it over to the chicken pens to cut the head off and feed the roots and leaves to the chickens which they always like.
I fed the stock to the chickens and they gobbled it right up.
