I just went and looked at it. It is super sketch and needs to be taken care of today. The more help the better. Looks like wading out to it to rope and cut off small pieces is the way to start, but the trunk will be a bitch. You cant get a truck anywhere near it. Probably need to plan on suiting up and ferrying to the island to do much of the work. The gauge says 263, but there must be a bunch coming in from 4 mile, cause it looks closer to 350 to me.

Who's comfortable doing some swift water wading, while wielding a chainsaw? I would step up, but seems like a good time to have 2 strong feet.

chainsaw

I can make it after work. I have plenty of saw experience but not with water crashing on me. I could bring my files and we could tune up the teeth if need be.

Ahhhh yes. NNR rapid. hehe.... Dave, is it the same tree that has been there? I always remember having to go left around the rock and then charge right to miss the tree. Maybe it shifted?

You guys rock so it will probably be gone by this weekend, but if not I will be up there Sunday and can help if needed.

This appears to be new tree that toppled in.

Some folks are meeting up there at 430 to try to get 'er done.

If you want to help, be prepared to wade or ferry over to the island.

Good work guys. We were on our toes all the way down just to be pleasantly disappointed. Thanks for the solid work.
