Staying home on weekends
Being a weekend it seemed like a good idea to stay home and enjoy the forest a bit as the sun was out.
Brackets aren’t ready yet
I thought I’d mount my radiator cooling fluid add-on on the old Chevy van, but I noticed the brackets I’d made needed another coat of paint so I painted them and hung them over my wood stove to dry as it wasn’t real warm outside today.
Fueling the dozer
I needed to add some fuel to the Bulldozer, so I loaded up the quad runner with that and took off around 1PM headed for the dozer which was parked up the hill.
I was able to get the fuel in the dozer without spilling much of it. I then checked the transmission fluid which is under the seat. The oil level in that was right up to the top, but I did notice a pack rat was starting to build a nest under it. I left the seat off so light would shine in there so I hope that will deter the critter.

Walk in the forest
Old roads are easy to walk on
Too early for mushrooms
I looped around and came back to where I had the bike parked and hopped on and headed down the hill.
Checking our spring water tanks
Let her rip
Any apples left on the trees
It’s late in the season for apples, but you never know. Some of the apples here are what’s called winter apples. If you are lucky enough to find one, they are crispy, sweet and real fruity.
Another day gone
I continued on home where the sun was down and the day was cooling off. I looked at the brackets I painted before I left. They seemed to be dry, but the day was gone, so they can keep for another time before I install them.
