Christmas Tree

Has anyone tired to take home a full size Christmas Tree home in your trailer or bike?

No, but I filled a propane tank the other day and carried it in a bike trailer. That has to be the strangest thing I’ve ever carried. I bet I could fit a Christmas tree though if I tried - you could just strap it to something like this.

GCN did it a few weeks ago. I think the tree was about 7ft and they mounted it sideways, but they were using an ebike with a large cargo container at the front. Didn't look ideal and probably wouldn't be safe on any mups.

Many probably would be so tired they don't read what they wite? Well you know what I mean.

I could see the mentally challenged in the LCF forum tying it to their necks and wondering why they were choking while riding with the tree thumping behind them with half the needled gone on the dragging side........

you would have harvested salt hay with a bike, instead of ox-cart, if you lived near the NE coast in the 1600s. oh wait when was the bike invented? oops 200 years later. never mind
