Alafia - North Creek maint needed
« on: June 13, 2007, 09:32:15 PM »
There is a good sized tree down and hanging about 4 feet off the ground about 2/3 of the way through the North Creek trail.
Work, what's that?!  Oh, s*** I'm late!

How big around, & how long? I am tempted to go to Alafia Thurday before I have to return the rental truck and I could bring a chainsaw with me and clear this away if it is small enough for one person to handle.

It's about 3 feet around maybe a chain saw would do the job, a wee snip and it'll fall into the water.

It's not that big, maybe 10-12 inches. I saw a lady ride under it this morning! My dang setpost almost hit it, and she just squeezed under it. I was amazed. :)

unless your dad has long hair and looks like a woman, I'm pretty sure it wasn't him! :D

I hit alafia yesterday though, and the tree's been cleared...
