Taking Apart the Van’s Spring Shackles and Some Forest Exercise

Monday February 20, 2023 Guerneville CA.

Wood cutting

I  heard  my brother Barry was up in the hills cutting his firewood. Seemed like a good time to hop on the dirt bike and go for a ride up there, so off I went.

I found him at the top of the hill and parked the bike.barry1


We sat around shooting the bull for a bit, then he got back to work and I went off for a dirt bike ride.woodcutter2


View spot

I stopped here where I cut this tree out of the way of the view and now the stump makes a nice chair to enjoy the view.stump3


I sat and enjoyed the view for a bit and rested up before continuing my ride.sky4


Van’s shackle bushing repair

When I returned home, I got to work on the van’s shackles, taking this one apart.bushing5


These things always seem to be a hassle, especially getting the rubber bushings out which always seem to be stuck.bolt6


Other side

I got that one apart and moved over to the other side of the van and took the right side shackle off too. Now I can check out the parts and see what I need to order up to get these fixed up right.otherside7



I did some chair hopping and around three, I rode up to this trail and walked out it and moved dirt until 5;30 for some exercise.trail8


Nice day.
