I needed my Pulaski to do some trail work. I wasn’t sure exactly where I left it, but I remembered I put it under a big tree at the end of a trail I was working on.
I hopped on the quad runner to go find it, but stopped here to do some work on the drainage ditch that goes across the road. Just needed to add some little rocks to control the water when it rains.
Then I continued up the road to go find the Pulaski.
It was a good walk out the trail to find the Pulaski as it was at the end of the trail, about a half a mile or so.
The trail goes through here and I’m about half way there.
I looked around for a big tree when I got near the end of the trail and decided that big one there was likely the one where I stashed the Pulaski the last time I worked on this trail.
I found it there under the big tree. Some critter must be living under the tree as there was fresh dirt on the Pulaski.
I packed the Pulaski back to the Quad and rode on up to the other spot I need to use the Pulaski to repair a trail.
The forest view on the way to the other spot where I need to do some work.
I parked here where I needed to widen the ditch crossing the road here so I can get the quad through this spot and up the old road.
The rocked crossing is just too narrow even for a dirt bike so I needed to widen it to get the quad runner through it.
I worked about three hours on this project and it looked pretty good, but when I tried to cross with the quad, it was still a little too narrow, so I’ll have to work on widening it out some more later.
Another bad spot
I rode on up past the crossing to this slide that I’ll also have to make a trail through eventually. It looks like a lot of work to me, er, I mean exercise.
Break at the spring
After that I headed back down the hill stopping at our spring to get a drink of water and to use one of the chairs to sit and just take a break and enjoy the forest for a bit.
This small tree wasn’t down on the way up the hill today. It’s been real windy today, but still very pleasant. I got it out of the way so I could pass on by.
I stopped here to do some work on the bridge. I’d filled the bucket on the front of the quad with rocks while up in the hills.
I brought some rock down to fill up this spot at the end of the bridge.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
