Dirt bike ride
Since Barry and I worked on clearing the roads up in the forest yesterday Barry said he was coming by for a dirt bike ride today. He arrived about 11 just as the day was warming up enough to make it real nice.
Looking for shrooms
We rode around some more covering most of our property and my cousin’s place too.
Barry wanted to ride on some steeper stuff than I wanted to ride on so I left him and went on home while he enjoyed himself on the steep stuff. He has a much hotter dirt bike than I do so steep stuff is easier for him than it is for me and I’m old enough not to need to do the steep stuff like I did when I was younger. The stuff we already rode on was steep enough for me.
When Barry came back down to my house we sat around and shot the bull for a bit and he left for home.
Looking for old trails
I needed a good nap which I did and eventually jumped back on the dirt bike and went back up into the forest to do a hike. I wanted to check out a ridge top for old trails.
Animal trails that is as they make pretty good ones in the steep hills that aren’t usually too steep. The animals I’m talking about would have made these trails a long time ago.
There aren’t as many animals around these days so the trails are there but one has to look hard to find them.
Anyway I rode on up to the ridge top and and parked the bike and started out on my hike going up along the ridge top looking for signs of the old trails.
When I got to a steep part I started looking around the sides of the ridge for the animal trails as animals like to make the trails in the easiest places to walk and still travel the ridge tops.
Found an old trail
I was trying to follow the trail back to the dirt bike as this part I’d missed on the way out and had gone up the steep part. The trail goes to the right of that big tree and the dirt bike is getting closer.
That old trail shows promise so I’ll have to hike it a couple more times to figure out exactly where it goes and then eventually I’ll likely start doing some work on it to improve it.
I headed on home and got there about 6:30 and was pretty beat so that was my day.
