Yesterday was another long tough day clearing trails. I started even earlier hoping to get the high trail to the Sugar Mill done in one day. I was also hoping to capitalize on the cooler morning weather and try to get in some work before the big gray clouds looming over head started pouring on me. Well, the rain started before I even got out of the gate there in the yard – and pretty much rained the entire day……. but – I was armed with better equipment and wanting to see what I could get accomplished. I drove straight up to the mill and set in immediately to work, finishing it off in just under 2 hours. I then proceeded on out the trail as I headed back down the mountain.
Ya know, doing pretty much any kind of work in the rain just sucks. Weed eating in particular…. especially if you’re weed eating over your head (small tree limbs and bushes) – using my new fancy hedge trimmer that attach to the end of the weed eater, pretty much gives you the same results…… wet and covered in small pieces of leaves, grass, thorns and the occasional millipede that apparently likes to hang out in the trees and bushes I was trimming. All I can say is there a lot less of the wormy little beggars up there now. By 2:00 – I was as soggy as any one human being could be, covered in ‘clippings’ and about out of gas (both me and the weed eater) so I packed it up and headed for town, as I had to clean everything and transfer it back to my truck [I thought]. Shawn was there when I got there – and he did most of it for me. So – I didn’t get the entire trail cleared, but didn’t miss it by much….. I’ll finish it off here soon. Maybe.
I came home, peeled my very soggy clothes off and climbed into the shower. My Bride had a drink waiting for me when I came out and announced we were having pizza for dinner [YAY] and she was going to go get it [double YAY]….. she got back and we sat and munched on some fine pizza and had ‘several’ more drinks. I remember sitting down to write you all about my day and that was about it……. I guess I got up and went to bed thinking I was done…… my bad……
We were supposed to work today – one tour at noon – but we had almost monsoon rain for most of the morning and the tour got cancelled (for customer safety reasons mostly) Do you know how wet it has to be to cancel an ATV tour??? Dive shop pinged me and asked if i wanted to make a dive tomorrow and I turned them down…. I’m ready for a day of dry rest. They have already pinged me again and asked if I want to make a dive Monday – that one I jumped on…. rest of the trail and lean to’s are gonna have to wait 😉
Good Night Ya’ll * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Thankx for stopping in~!
