Aren't Falcons supposed to be in trees?

One guy on that thread asked if the tree grew up under and picked it up. Impossible since trees do not grow in that fashion.

I have been around people from Petty Coat Junction Idaho that could park a car in a tree. Especially a right hand drive Falcon.

Wasn't it Bill Clinton that famously said that if you find a turtle on a fencepost, you can be sure it didn't get there by itself? grinning smiley

I was following (in family 61 Chevy) my friend in his Falcon back to DC from Ocean City many years ago when I watched a whirlpool wind lift his car off the road, spin it in circles and deposit it between trees.

Took us hours to get it out.

In the case of the bike, the bike would have to have been hung on the branch years ago and the tree grows around it. Trees grow larger outward, the upward growth is very slender and then fills outward over years. The tree has no ability to lift anything as it grows, just surround it.

Yup hang a bike on tree and eventually it will grow around it. Trees grow away from themselves. Put s nail in a tree one ft off the ground and it will be at the same height fifty years from now just engulfed in the tree. That is why surveyors sometimes put a spike in a tree as a benchmark. They don't move over time...

This photo must be the mirror image or that is a right-hand drive Falcon. Nonetheless, that Falcon has certainly been elevated to a higher level than any other I've seen.

Oh...

Hey,

If a Falcon falls out of a tree in the Australian Outback and there's no one there to hear it...
