Or whoever

It looks to me like this bamboo stake split in the wind. . .

    So this question might be crazy, but bamboo is pretty strong, right? The wind blows like crazy here, but that seems unlikely, am I right?

    I had a bamboo rod just like that! Any Chum salmon in the area?

    Looks to be some bark damage on the tree by the split..

    I think you're right on the wind causing the split..

    Looks like the wind damage. If tied to the tree, the wind could have bent the tree and stake enough to cause the split.

    Is that a dry lake bed beyond the tree? Do you get brine shrimp after a rain?

    Might not hurt to take that pink plastic tape off so it doesn't girdle the branch..

    Not sure the the tape is a problem. I use it all the time. It has some stretch to it. I have come back to my tape on jobs a few years later, or run across other people's flagging on saplings and small branches and never noticed girdling. If left for a year or two the tape dries and falls apart.

    No its pasture. Just with dead weeds instead of grass.

    It's not hard bro. Go get your poles first. Do it a bit at the time. When she asks what the lumber is for, ask her what she's doing out of the kitchen.

    Nope. I know where she is. In the kitchen.

    Hilarious. If this board wasn't on life support we could start a Dead **** For Sherb thread.

    Its a veritable garden of Eden. In theory. If water is available.

    Looks like G-d sent a plague to your Garden of Eden.

    You know what the worst part of the book of Job is? You have this towering tragedy that befalls Job, and then in the absurd epilogue, he gets it all back and everything is hunky-dory, as if his 10 kids were just fungible with one another.

    Yeah the Book of Job always bothered me. But maybe his first set of kids were ****, and his wife an intolerable .....

    Maybe God gave him the boils so that he could make cool youtube vids.
