That antenna is nicely weathered...I thought it was wood.
I got lucky. Several years back a survey crew clearcut a wide swath of the neighboring property at our common boundary. With tall woods on both sides, the trees that filled in grew tall, straight and fast. A recent drought or ??? killed a few of these providing nicely dried ridgepoles. The absentee owner/corporation doesn't seem to mind a few of these walking off.
I collected two more yesterday. It's always nice to have backups.
Turtlelady...keep the name. The lightness of the bamboo makes our heavy efforts pale in comparison. I WILL find bamboo.
