The last time I saw the tree after bush hogging the bypass it had two cuts that were less than half way through. The cuts are about 4 feet apart. The tree is extremly stable and could support any well made device.

Once you guys decide on what you want to do, get me a sketch and I will take it up with the appropriate people at the park. Doesn't have to be anything fancy. We already have a good bypass so nobody HAS to use the tree thingy. I will be at the park all day Sunday for the Down to Earth event.

More storms Friday. We might be making a new storm fall list on Saturday.

Ok Brad,I'll do that. It might not happen though,I'm super low on play money but I might be able to round up a $100 or so worth of Lowes credit tomorrow. Let me see what I can do and I'll post up tomorrow sometime...Any body want to throw in some greenbacks? If not I'll have enough with credit and some cash now that I think about it

Hold up!, I thought Daniel was building this? :lol:
I would rather have a mind open to wonder than closed from belief.

Are moving forward with a construction project without taking it up with Shelby Farms management here?

I was thinking of offering for MSTA to reimburse the material expenses for the project. But ONLY if the project follows the correct protocol. Talk to park management first.

Oh ok,Brad. I thought you had already informed them and just needed a drawing. My apologies. Next week would be better for me anyways. Butch if you want we can still go take a look at it and get some visuals and some measurements .

Lets meet around 9am as planned. I've got some ideas I think you would like. We'll pull some measurements and put together a sketch for Brad. If 8 ft of ramp on each side will work this will be under $100 depending on fasteners.
