Visitors, Selling Stuff, Ride In the Forest and Van Work

Saturday May 25, 2024 Guerneville CA.

I was sitting out in the front yard, warming up when Bill Henderson showed up. I hadn’t seen him in quite a few years so we visited and shot the bull for awhile.

Bill is checking out Skiddy.bill

Selling stuff

It wasn’t long before Barry came by with his nephew Gerald.. Gerald came down from Oregon to check out my old Toyota as he wanted to look at it to maybe purchase it. Bill took off.

It’s not something I really want to sell, but it’s been just sitting in the yard getting older.

Gerald wants to restore it. It does need some TLC which I would be happy to see it get as it’s been as old friend for many years.

Test drive

Right away, I put Gerald in the drivers seat and let him take it for a short ride up into the hills to try it out.gerald

Forest ride

The ride went well and returned to my place and we all went for a dirt bike ride up into the forest.bikes4

Tom’s old truck

We didn’t get far when we went by Tom’s old truck which we had to check out as Gerald was interest in it for his kid.truck5


We got back to our ride and rode on up to our little waterfall to have a look.gerald6

The water is a lot less now, but the area is still impressive.fall7

Drink of water

From there we rode around and eventually ended up at the dozer, parked by the main spring.dozer8

I noticed the foxgloves are blooming here as Gerald gets a drink of water.spring9

Break spot

Then we rode around some more and ended up at the top where we usually take a good break.view10

From there we rode around a lot more until we were pretty tired out.overlook11

By the time we returned to my house, we were all beat. They took off for Barry’s place and I went in for a nap.

After a good nap, I went back outside to do a few things.

Van work

I needed to tidy up this electrical connection under the van.bolbt12

To protect the bolt and the connection from corroding, I put a thick coat of dialectic grease on all this and then wrapped it all up good with electrical tape.connection13

And tucked it up nicely with some tie wraps.taped14

Then I sat down by the van and made a list of all the other things I need to do to the van to make it ready to travel soon.


And the last thing I did was to fuel up Skiddy so it has a full tank, using my electric transfer pump setup which makes the job quick and easy.fuel

Nice day.
