Toyota won’t start
I started out checking to see if the Toyota would start after cleaning up the battery terminals the other day. It didn’t. It turned over a tiny bit and then nothing.
I checked the water and it was real low in all the cells so I filled them up and tried again but no go, I think it needs charging now but maybe the battery is shot. I got another battery sitting around for the bulldozer and that didn’t turn it over either, maybe that one is shot too as it’s been around for awhile. I checked a bunch of stuff on the Toyota such as fuses and wires but it just wouldn’t turn over at all.
Later in the day
Prepping for butcher day
While I was thinking on that I got my chicken butcher area set up as I need to get that task done soon. I have about sixty chickens and need to get that number down to about 25 so I have my work cut out for me. I’m thinking of doing about a dozen a day.
Trail work in the forest
I finally decided maybe the two batteries I was using were no good so decided to take the old van battery out and try that as I knew that one was good. It worked so I was able to drive the Toyota on up into the forest where I wanted to do some trail work.
Clearing the trail
That all took about an hour and it was now 4PM.
A bit at a time gets the job done
I got home just as it got dark and shut the chickens in for the night.
I have to go out after dark and pick the ones I want to butcher tomorrow.
