Visiting hilltop neighbors
Nobody was home yesterday when I tried to visit these guys. Turns out they were in Hawaii for a wedding and just returned last night.
I shot the bull with Rob’s wife and than him and his kids.
One of the reasons I rode up today was I’ve been helping Rob tap a fresh water spring as that’s one of the things I’m an expert on.
My spring tapping video
I made this video and put it up on YouTube quite some time ago. It has about 90,000 views on it, so I think I’ve helped a lot of people out with this. I use my own method which is mostly different than how other people do it. I use the new and improved easy method.
This is that video.
We needed some blue clay to do the project so Rob is looking for some in the big ferns as water seeping over the ground for years is what makes blue clay. Rob has his shovel and is looking for some as this is under the spring we are tapping.
We got more of that done than I expected. He just needs a stainless steel screen and we can finish it up.
Heading for home
Once home I let the chickens out to feed and did some puttering around the yard until the day started to cool down when I went in for the day.
