Pickup Truck in a Tree

The driveway leading to the tree has signs posted that read, "TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT," and "NO ESCAPE," and "PREPARE TO DIE," among others. We were not shot and we did escape, but potential visitors should be warned.

Mark Madson, "The Wisconsin Mad Man," originally saved the twin trees that support the pickup truck from being bulldozed by the Little Limestone Company.
