Thursday February 1, 2024 Guerneville CA.
It started to rain a bit when I woke up today, and then it really let loose for about ten minutes, a cats and dogs affair.
Shopping and buying
By the time i got it going, the rains had slowed down a little, but keep at it most of day.
I got my checkbook and headed to the shopping area to do some buying. I wasn’t sure which model to buy, so I looked at the two I had in mind more carefully and finally decided on this one, a Honda 700 deluxe model.
I purchased this green one, but have to wait about a week for some accessories to come in before I pick it up, like a roof and a windshield. Anyway, I got it all paid for. Had to write four checks before I got all the wording right on writing out the numbers part. I’m not use to writing big numbers like that.
I had one more purchase to make, so I headed to a hardware store to purchase that one. It was way more than I thought it would be. A Milwaukie battery powered sawzsall. At least I got ten percent off with my Vets discount. I want this unit to cut roots and stumps on the trails I’ve been working on. Using a chainsaw to do this just dulls out the chain rather fast when you hit a rock or dirt. This unit has carbide blades that shouldn’t do that.
That pretty much took up the whole day. I headed for home.
Once home I checked with Tom to see about hauling it home next week as he has a nice trailer for the purpose.
