Puttering, Blue Clay Find, and Some Spring Work At the Neighbors
Monday August 21, 2023 Guerneville CA.
I went over to my brother’s chicken pen today and collected the eggs while he is away for a bit.
Car tire leak
My tire pressure alert came on the other day and I found this tire at 20 pounds instead of 30 pounds. I added some air. Today I checked for the leak and couldn’t find one, so I’ll wait awhile and check the pressure again at a later time. I think I might have had a small rim leak that sealed up when I added more pressure.
The next thing I did was to move this wi-fi extender to this spot to improve the internet signal in the front yard.
My neighbor, way up on the hill tops called and said we should check out his new spring and get ready to tap it soon. We need some blue clay, so I stopped to check out this creek spot where I thought there was some blue clay.
There seems to be lots of blue clay here. We just need to take some rocks off the top to get to it.
I continued on up the hill to this gate where I spotted these wild turkeys sneaking off.
It was trying to rain, but it just did some very light drizzling for about an hour.
The spring area was a bit over grown, so Rob took his weed eater to make a trail into it.
Spring clean out
We took the rocks off the spring tap and found it all plugged up with roots from the big ferns there.
This big Pacific Giant Salamander crawled out from the rocks. It’s about 7 inches long and like to live in this type of spot.
We made plans to get some blue clay and fix this spring up soon.
Lots of clouds today, but little rain.
Headed back to Rob’s place where we shot the bull a bit then I headed on home for the day.
