Sunday October 31, 2021 Guerneville CA.
I heard Barry outside this morning as I was getting it going. He had his chainsaws and was going up into the hills to remove the trees that fell across the roads during the last big rain storm.
I hadn’t eaten yet so I didn’t go up there with him.
Mulch and drizzle
Once I got it going I hauled more woodchip mulch to the garden. It started to drizzle real lightly, not enough to get wet so I continued hauling woodchips but eventually I had to get a cap as the drizzle was increasing slightly.
It wasn’t long before I had to get under some cover as I was getting wet as the drizzle had increased to a light rain.
When the rain slowed down enough I hauled a couple more loads of mulch but was thinking I’d had enough of that so checked the dirt bikes gas and rode on up into the hills to see if I could find Barry by the sound of his chainsaws or the noise of his quad he was riding.
I rode up to the Guerneville overlook to have a listen but couldn’t hear a thing.
Top of the World
So I rode on up to the Top of the world and had a listen but still no sound of Barry working away.
Throwing rocks off the road
While I was throwing rocks off the road I thought I heard a chainsaw but it didn’t run long enough for me to tell where it was coming from so I threw some more rocks off the road and listened and eventually heard his saw down below me on a road coming up the hill.
Done for the day
We finally made it back down the hill leaving some small trees across the road as Barry was too beat to do any more and besides his chainsaw needed sharpening, so we went back to my house.
I made a good dent in the mulch pile but still have plenty more to finish that garden, but enough for today. I sat around enjoying the rest of the evening until it started to get dark.
Testing the vans brake light switch
Carl in comments suggested I see if the van’s new brake light switch works or not by waiting until it got dark to do it, so I just did and they worked. Thanks Carl.
