RaDAR - Preparing the trail

Posted: 24 Feb 2019 11:30 AM PST

Soon it will be the first RaDAR Challenge for 2019. The have heard of and
seen a few large snakes sailing around the area, some pretty dangerous too,
like the BOOMSLANG!

So I decided its time to clear the RaDAR training ground a little to make
it a little safer to walk around and at least have room to deploy an
antenna quickly without the wire getting tangled in some thick bush.

I started on Friday afternoon ..

140cc four stroke engine

I started by making a new road ..

Im pretty impressed with the power of this motor!

So I started cutting the path . It didnt take too long considering.

The wild fowls liked to scratch around here afterwards.

Where possible I want to clear the grass around the natural trees. Most
trees are of the thorny kind, the worst being the Haak en steek but a
beautiful tree nevertheless and the bees love them!

A prime example

I used a nearby overgrown gravel road to make up the last few meters of a
full kilometer loop but needed some cutting too.

The gravel road

My grandson did some trail running on the route.

A sharp turn it seems

A brief piece of shade

Tomorrow Ill need to take a half days leave to clear an area next to the
fence my immediate neighbour thinks needs cutting. I cant agree more. The
previous owner of this area never, ever bothered .

Just being naighbourly .. the task that faces me.

The RaDAR Playground Alias E-Trail
