Tree of Plane, Bikes and Things

Well... it is gone! All that remains of the plane, bikes, and things is a lone mannequin hanging from a pole -- and scraps of the plane laying behind it on the ground.

Tree of Plane, Bikes and Things

One of the creepiest parts of the whole experience is that the entire property is surrounded by broken, recovered tombstones. Be on the lookout for the friendly artist tooling around town in his red Geo Metro.

Bikes and Things in a Tree

On the north side of Hwy 34, between the train tracks and Golf Course Rd, are several buildings. On the east side of the buildings you will find a large tree with bicycles hanging from it and, lately, an airplane on top with a dummy hanging out of the cockpit. Also you will find a dummy hanging from a telephone pole. Around the property there are several of what appear to be tombstones. The only information I have is that the gentleman who owns the property is an eccentric who obviously likes putting stuff in his tree.
