The post came out more easily than the car did, but that was a pleasant surprise in this project, a four-year effort that was finally finished in early November.
Ed Dodd and Wade Holden, a project manager and president, respectively, of Friends of the Trail, speculated on whether the post, holding up a stretch of guardrail on Lake Alice Road, really was 11 feet long, as it was slowly lifted straight up and out, and whether it would be reusable. It was, on both counts.
The post and its stretch of guardrail were neatly lined up on the edge of the road so the men, could get back to the real reason they were there, hauling about three decades worth of junk out of an illegal dumpsite in the ravine alongside the road.
