A couple days ago
A couple days ago I took Rene down to the ocean and showed him where to poke pole fish and then we went over to Port Orford Head and walked down this trail looking for places to fish for some other time. We found one but I didn’t get a picture of the nice spot.
I was thinking of going on home as most of this place is locked up.
Yesterday traveling home
The next day I was off headed for home around 9AM.
Not much exciting on the trip home just a lot of driving. I stopped for gas before entering back into California as gas is much cheaper.
An oh oh
When I went to start the engine the starter didn’t work. Lucky for me there was a good slope off the gas pumps and I was able to pop the clutch and start the engine.
Now what to do. If I stopped the engine on the way home it wasn’t going to start. I needed to do some testing so I looked for a pull off on my road that had a down hill slope so I could start the engine if I couldn’t get it going any other way.
It took about an hour of driving before I found what I wanted and pulled over and shut the engine off. Sure enough, it wouldn’t start.
So I dug around in my tools looking for a hammer but found a heavy pry bar that should do the trick. I got under the van and hit the starter hard with the pry bar a few times and tried the key and it started right up. Ok, I was good to go and if it happened again I had a pry bar to get it going again.
I didn’t have any more problems with it on the rest of the trip home but I’m going to have to take it apart and fix it so this doesn’t happen again in some inconvenient spot.
I made it home around 5PM and was beat so after checking on my chickens which seemed to be doing well that was it for me that day.
Today I was gong to take it easy and mostly just take care of the chickens.
I have quite a few little chicks now but not sure how many.
Starting more peeps
Tonight after it got dark I moved the eggs and the hen into her own nest box and into the young bird pen to hatch them out hopefully.
