Short road Filetka – Pochvomash, Kirov

The steep sandy bank of the Vyatka River, away resting

Studying the area “Pochvomash” – discovered a dirt road. It turns out that this road connects the area of the Foleyka (OCM) and the “Pochvomash” of the city of Kirov. Road in the middle state, normally passing only in dry weather. In the rain it is difficult to drive through it. Most of the territory is flooded in spring. As a bonus – there is an exit to the river Vyatka! Yesterday I went to the river, bathed. “Beach” in good condition. When the water drops, a sandy beach opens. Watch the video. Continue reading

Walking with a dog on the old equestrian forest roads

Walk with a dog in the woodsAncient horse roadHello, friends. Last weekend I managed to go on a mini trip. Hike on foot, scheduled, with a dog. The total distance is 10 km. Went with a backpack. But the parking lot was found by the tick in the backpack, in things. He did not manage to get to the skin. Ticks small, the size of a match head. 1 * 1mm. The way ran through the field, marshland, forest. In the forest there were beautiful forest roads. Earlier here we used to go mainly on horses. Now such roads are called “old horse roads”. Used for exporting forests, conducting trading activities. Now there are only mushroom pickers. Some places on the road are fallen trees. Several forest streams crossed along the way. We often have rains, so there are a lot of water in the streams. Continue reading

Rear wheel protection Lifan 200 GY-3b

After a brief operation of the motorcycle Lifan 200 GY-3b, it turned out that you can not do without a back protection against splashes. Dirt from the wheel flies to the frame, suspension, shock absorber, chain, driver’s legs. Dirt on the shock absorber and suspension will lead to an earlier failure of these nodes. I decided to make two splash-guards, one is attached to the wheel fork, the second (upper) is on the frame. Everything is made of 4mm aluminum. Rubber will be attached to the upper bracket of the mudguard.

Motorcycle weekend trip on Lifan 200 gy-3b

Motorcycle weekend trip on Lifan 200 gy-3bOn one of the sunny spring days, I took a motorcycle ride. The weather is perfect for motorcycle trips. The big water has already descended, the banks have dried up. Motorcycle Lifan 200 gy-3b class enduro beautifully goes both on the asphalt and off-road. On this motorcycle you can easily overcome several tens of kilometers along a flat road, and then off-road where you wish. The motorcycle is lightweight, weighing only ~ 125kg. If you get stuck, it’s easy to pull it out. At the same time, it easily takes on as much weight. The motorcycle Lifan 200 gy-3b is equipped with a full-size rubber: in front on a 21-inch drive, behind an 18-inch drive. The 200cm2 motor has enough power for driving along the track at a cruising speed of 85km, although it is possible to accelerate faster. The transmission has 5 gears. For the duration of the break-in, I switch speeds at 17 km/h, i.e. at 2nd speed I switch to 17 km/h, at 3 in 34 km/h, on 4 in 51 km/h, on 5 in ~ 60 km/h. Speed ​​is easy to watch on the digital speedometer. If you have any questions, ask, I’ll be happy to answer.

Eternal granite curbs

Eternal granite curbsSuch curbs met on one of the streets of Kirov. Curbs are granite, made by hand. They show traces of giant drills. The borders were placed on this section of the road about 60 years ago. Each curb weighs from 100 to 1000kg. All the borders have different sizes – length from 1 to 4 meters! We will not repeat each curb. Now they are dismantled from this place. It is a pity that there is a replacement of the eternal natural materials for not durable and cheap.

Self-made extension cord from computer wires

I decided to make an extension cable from unused cables. These cables lay for many years in the pantry. Initially, they were intended to power servers. The plus of this cable is that it is in double thick insulation, and has 3 wires. The cross-section of each wire is 0,75mm2. We do not use a ground wire, so I connected it to another wire. Most importantly – do not forget to dismantle the “Grounding” contact in the plug. The total length of the resulting extension was more than 10 meters. The extension cord will undoubtedly find application in any farm, especially – it is pleasant to use a thing made by own hands.
