I couldn't find a tree down by lilley RD. but did clear one that was down just past the skinny(which has a few boards missing in the middle) and another tree leaner on the west loop.
Thanks for getting that log by the skinny, it was a pain to ride under.
The tree down at Lilley Rd. is literally "at the road". It's where the trail splits to the left and one way goes up (facing into the trail with Lilley at your back). It's a big dead pine tree. My chainsaw was stolen, so I was hoping my buddy loosecannondale would get at it since he lives in that neighborhood across from it, but he's been busy and hasn't had a chance. I might attempt borrow his saw today, we'll see how it goes.
We've known since earlier this spring about the skinny having some boards missing. Unfortunately the log rotted at the top and became mushy several inches deep into the wood. Now the screws have nothing to grab into. Still contemplating a fix, but judging by how fast the log rotted, it might be hopeless.
