Dirt bike ride day
When I went out the door this morning I found my brother Barry out there getting ready to go for a dirt bike ride. I hadn’t eaten yet so I told him to come back in about an hour and I’d go for a ride with him.
Checked out some forest fire rehab areas
We rode on up into the hills and through these fire break areas. We were checking to see how things were holding up as far as erosion control. We haven’t had any real big rain storms and things were all looking pretty good.
Not all play
Riding dirt bikes in the hills isn’t all play as there’s always some work to do, especially when the winds knock down a lot of trees. Barry is looking to see if we could move this one or not as they are pretty heavy. We decided just to move it enough to get by it and we barely could do that. There seems to be a never ending supply of downed trees on the roads in the forest.
Top of the World
This is a good relaxing spot so we stayed awhile shooting the bull.
Off we go
Barry is a retired surveyor so he’s always looking for corner markers and property lines. He’s pointing to where he couldn’t find a park corner marker when we were looking for some real old roads coming off the hills, likely the ones our great grandfather would of used.
At the bottom of the hill we have to go through this locked gate to cross the main highway over to my place. If you are smart you let the other guy get to the gate first so he has to deal with the lock.
Barry loaded up his dirt bike on his truck and went on home.
Enjoying the day
I napped a bit then went outside and did some chicken stuff and mostly sat around the rest of the day chair hopping.
