Marty came by today to help me do some work in the forest. We shot the bull for a bit then hopped on the machines and rode on up into the forest taking a chainsaw and some chairs up with us.
Chairs to the spring
We stopped here at the spring to deposit the chairs.
We got a drink of spring water and then tried the chairs out for a bit before continuing on up the hill.
We stopped here to throw some sticks off the road.
This is the reason we brought the chainsaw up with us. I cut the old dead tree up enough to push it off the road.
Then we rode on to the next downed tree and worked on getting it off the road so we could get by.
That’s better. That was pretty much all the work I had planned to do,……….But.
Break at the overlook
We continued to the top of the hill for a break.
The view of Guerneville from that spot.
After a good break we started back down the hill and ran into these downed trees. We were already tired out from taking the other trees off the road. This was a bigger mess than the other ones and I wasn’t sure we had enough energy to clear these out but we started on them.
Got it done, barely
We got those trees cleared but were now pretty tired out and I said to Marty any more and we turn around and go another way.
We took another way home down this trail which was nice.
It was 5 when we got back to my house so Marty took off for home. All the work really aggravated my sore hip and I could barely walk without a lot of pain. I needed my walking stick to get around and things hurt real good. I got he cold pack out and laid down on it until it got dark and I had to go out and put the chickens away for the night. The cold pack helped a lot and I could move without too much pain.
I need to learn not to overdue it. :O)
We had a nice time working up in the forest and got some work done and some exercise.
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.
