Wednesday August 3, 2022 Guerneville CA.
The first night I put out the new feed box and moved the little other feed box the rats were used to, no rats came by that night. Very cautious critters.
The big feed box lid is left open to encourage the rats to eat from the food in there.
Snooping around a bit
Eventually they should get used to the changes and start eating out of the food box, that is the hope.
Headed up into the forest for a bike ride and to get some exercise
After eating and a nap I hopped on the dirt bike about 3 and went up into the hills for a ride around the roads and trails for about an hour before ending up in the area I’m working on the old animal trail. About half way up I realized I’d left my camera at home. I get a lot of exercise from the trail work, but also from riding the dirt bike, especially with all the hilly roads I ride on. The body gets more exercise riding the dirt bike than one would think. It takes a lot of muscles to keep ones body on the bike as it scoots around.
Roots to dig out
At the trail work area I had about a six inch diameter tree root to dig up and cut off to get out of the trail so I worked on that for quite some time. Once that was out there were a bunch more roots of smaller sizes to work on. I worked on that until I was beat, then sat in the chair to rest and enjoy the forest, before heading for home.
Once home I put on some sprinklers and did some chair hopping around the yard eating various berries.
