Another Needed to Wield a 2-Person Saw

The rustic foot path atop the ridge at the southern end of Forest Hill Cemetery is blocked by large tree trunks that have fallen across the path. The city states they are too stretched to clear the trail. They are willing to let us do it ourselves, without chain saws due to insurance issues. Looking for a north woods adventure, I invite others to join me and remove a few logs. We need the loan of a 2-person, not 2-man, saw that cuts well. Contact me if you can help. Who knows, perhaps to skid the logs we will be offered a blue ox. I am at 839-7949.
