Eventually I worked my way over to the old well and did the sediment thing for about a half hour. I must be near the bottom as the water is coming up clearer. Of course the chickens love to get a drink of water when I run this thing.
Chicken bowls from a bucket
I needed a couple of bowls for the chickens so I took a good bucket and marked it and cut it into three pieces with my jig saw. That gives me two bowls that are real sturdy. I trimmed the burrs off the edges with my pocket knife.
Weeds for the chickens
Getting the tires on the rims
And then I tackled the quad runner tires getting the new tires on the rims.
Putting the tires on was pretty easy after watching some YouTube videos. Two tips. Once the tires are on and need inflated, pull out the valve stem and use an air blower to inflate the tires as it provides more air to do this. Also to seat the tires on the rim so they’ll blow up hold the tire about two feet off the ground and slam it on the ground a number of times to start the tires on the rims, which is a very good tip that makes it much easier to seat them without a hassle. I had to re-slam the second tire but it worked well doing it this way.
Ho Ho, I have the tires on
Ride in the Redwood forest
I checked some springs on the way down the hill and when I went by this one I spotted the pipe pulled out of the spring and when I went to reconnect it the pipe was a bit short so I looked down below where I spotted this tree that fell down recently.
There’s always sticks and rocks on the road so if I’m not in a hurry I stop to throw them off the road which is good for some exercise and makes the roads nicer to travel on.
