Clearing forest roads
My brother Barry pulled into the yard just about the time I got up. He was going up into the hills to clear some trees and brush off some of the roads and had all his tools to do it.
I wasn’t ready to go yet so he took off and I got it going for the day.
Looking for Barry
Once I was awake enough I jumped on the dirt bike and rode on up into the forest to see if I could locate him to help out.
I stopped in this spot to have a listen to see if I could hear his chainsaw, but I heard nothing. I took the road to the left as I knew he had some work to do down that one.
Meeting up with neighbors
I found him taking a break and talking with some of our neighbors that were out for a walk. We hadn’t talked to them for a long time so we spent a good hour or so chatting with them.
I noticed there was a good view of the town of Guerneville from that spot.
Every one seemed pretty comfortable sitting on the road shooting the bull and catching up on stuff.
Work to do
We had work to do so eventually we took off looking for trees and brush that had fallen across the roads up there.
We remembered there were two of them, but our memories aren’t too good anymore.
As we were headed to those two spots we ran into a lot more trees down that we had forgotten about
Here’s the first one.
We rode down into here to clear one off, one of the ones we remembered.
Yep we remembered this one and worked on getting it off the road.
We continued on and got all the ones we had forgotten about, about ten of them.
There were several downed trees in this bunch.
And this bunch was quite a mess and we were getting tired out.
We finally got to the last one that we knew about. It was down this steep road so we started down it. I said to Barry I hope we can get through it as I don’t think I can get back up this road.
The tree was about half way down that road and it was steep in some spots.
Barry cut that log into small enough pieces so we could throw it off the road.
The rest of the road was open and I made it down the steep road ok.
Shooting the bull
From there we went back to my house and my other brother Tom came by so we shot the bull for another hour or so before Barry took off for home.
I was pretty beat from all the good exercise so that was pretty much it for me today.
