Default chainsaw

Didn't think we would need it in the RV. Do we? That would be some major cutting!

You need the chain saw for low branches. You put your wife on the roof and drive slowly through areas with low trees. She cuts off the branches that are too close. Don't drive too fast.

I think I will do the driving and Mike can sit up on top! I don't do heights and I would be dangerous with a chainsaw. . . .nope -- the picture that produces just wouldn't be pretty.
Thanks for the laugh.

Jana,
there have been times when I wished that I had something to clip branches overhanging the Bird.

Liz Pearce

Randy has a tool just for this job. He's the only guy with a forklift for a toad.

I just went up there last weekend and saw this road. When I first saw the picture I figured it was some rustic jeep path thru the backcountry, but this thoroughfare is actually Southwest 73rd Avenue, the road you take to get to the road Randy lives on. And remember, he says he's moving because it's getting too city-fied where he is.

You just went up there last weekend. I've been going up there for the last five years. You should have seen it five years ago.

you should have seen it after two hurricanes in 3 weeks!
that big green forklift is a lifesaver!
That dead limb in the picture is some leftover hurricane debri that decided to fall down and block the road.
we removed it pronto so all normal and ab-normal traffic could continue!
