Wednesday January 3, 2024 Guerneville CA.
It rained all night and stopped sometime in the morning before I got it going.
Barry showed up so Tom and I joined him for a ride up into the forest. The ground was a bit wet and slippery from the rain so we had to be extra careful.
At the top
From there, we started heading home.
I’d noticed the engine hood was popping up while I was running it. At first I thought I’d just backed into a tree but it opened a couple more times when I knew I didn’t run into any trees.
This hook latch was hitting some metal so it wouldn’t latch. After studying the problem for a bit I finally decided to grind off about an eighth inch of the hook that was hitting the piece of metal. That worked and all was well. They shipped it from the factory all messed up. Someone didn’t know what they were doing as they adjusted it so it just sorta worked and stayed closed until you used it.
I walked over to Tom’s to see what was left of the big tree he had cut down and found him there putting the fence he had to take down so they could cut it down, back up. He has a lot of wood there, but it’s full of pitch so I’m not sure he’ll use it for firewood as the pitch will get all over everything.

Blog transfer report
The first guy that was going to do the transfer didn’t seem to have the confidence to get the job done, but at least he passed it off to someone that seemed more confident to me.
I sit them up with passwords an such so they can get into the account late last night. Hopefully they are now working on getting the job done.
