Wednesday February 23, 2022 Guerneville CA.
Then I worked on prepping my van a bit checking out what food I had and loading some more. I needed to grease it but I’ll do that later in the day as I want to ride the dirt bike up into the hills and do some work on our spring water system.
Spring time spring work
I got some tape and rode the dirt bike up to this pipe where I knew some holes where in the pipe from rodents chewing into it to try and get some water. They do this late in the season when there isn’t much water around for them to drink.
This is the pipe with the rodent holes in it that has been leaking some of the spring water. The only problem was the holes were too big to patch with the tape so I’d need a new piece of black pipe but I didn’t have a piece handy.
So I left that pipe thinking I’d fix it eventually.
Hog wallow spring
Town of Guerneville
Heading down to another place to check on a spring I ran into this down tree that fell across the road during the winds the other day. It was rotten and not too heavy so I was able to move it off the road. I was surprised there weren’t a lot more trees down.
Rodent pipe damage repair
While at that spring I found a piece of back pipe laying there that wasn’t being used so I dragged it with the bike back to the rodent hole pipe and spliced it into the water line after cutting the pipe with the holes off.
Lots of water in this one for now
Water tanks area
With those springs all working I needed to go down to the tank area and hook the pipe up from some of the springs that I disconnect in the winter and just worked on. I parked here above the water tanks.
That’s all I had to do on the springs so I rode on home for a break.
Van gets greased
I didn’t really feel like doing it, but I made myself do it just to get it done.
And the day was about over.
