It was raining as I got it going today, so it was mostly an in the house type of day.
But in the afternoon, I decided to go for a ride up into the forest to check out some roads to make sure they were draining properly, mostly on my neighbors place.
Most of the roads on our property drain well, so I headed to my neighbor’s place to see how the roads there were draining as they seem to have the most drainage problems on their roads.
I thought the water would be flowing more than it was as it had been raining a lot. But the heaviest rain was to come just around dark.
I did some shovel work on the neighbor’s roads to improve things a bit. The best time to see how roads are draining is to be out in the rain, instead of being at home in a cozy dry place, but few people do this.
When I took out my new camera, it wouldn’t turn on. I was pretty sure it didn’t get wet but with the rain coming down I couldn’t check it out or it would get wet.
I was thinking my new camera failed for some reason, maybe I got it wet but it appeared to be dry.
Anyway, I rode around some more enjoying the rainy day in the forest. I was out for a couple of hours and getting a bit wet, so eventually headed towards home. For some reason my rain pants had a leak in them.
Once home I got out of the wet rain gear and into some warm clothes.
I tried the new camera again and it still was dead. I tried another battery and it worked so I put the new battery back in it and it worked. I think the contacts weren’t making contact for some reason, so all seemed good with that.
It looks like we are in for some rain and rain showers for about a week or so. That seems like a good time to go out and buy a new side by side which will make a better rig to go out in the rain with and to use as a work rig in the forest as it can carry tools better than the rigs I have.
