36 foot telescopic flag pole free to good home. Three, 4 foot sections of PVC, fits in backpack.
See last years pictures of Zealand for visuals.
Raised the flag (4’x6′ or 5’x8′ I can’t remember)a stunning 12 feet over the tree tops on Zealand!!
Free for the asking!!
I’m away in Texas until July 2… I get back to you after that.dirt_girlJuly 5, 2006 at 9:04 pmPost count: 303
Going …. going …. going…. gone !!!
The 36″ telescopic poles used on Zealand for the past two years have been spoken for by a fine woman with a hiking addiction!!!
Thank you all for comming.
If by chance she changes her mind I will put them back up for grabs.

Does it come with a “Look out for Low branches” alert warning? 😆 😆 😆
She is getting one cleverly designed pole. Thanks for sharing. :flag:dirt_girlJuly 5, 2006 at 9:38 pmPost count: 303
Only needs an alert if a man is carrying it.

I had no problems with it.
Must be the low clearance……….. 🙄dirt_girlJuly 7, 2006 at 12:28 amPost count: 303
Lower elevations… taller trees
I suppose it’s a good thing you and lady grace didn’t meet up with us closer to the summit.

We did Eisenhower in 2003 & 2005, but unfortunately have wedding to go to this year. I have a 10 foot (2×5) PVC pole, with hardware and flag if anyone wants to borrow it. Hope be able to participate in 2007, so will need the gear back.Sherpa JohnJuly 11, 2006 at 1:30 amPost count: 71
If by chance it becomes up for grabs again… I could use it for Owls Head!MtnMagicJuly 11, 2006 at 1:35 amPost count: 372
See you at the KOA during the Sept 8 – 10 weekend. And I hope well before!

If it happens to come up for grabs again, it’s all yours. I am waiting to hear back from the woman that laid claim to it first.
I wonder if there is enough room on Owls Head to set it up. Is the clearing similar to Zealand?SilentCalModeratorJuly 11, 2006 at 1:48 amPost count: 1291
John it’s a fairly easy design. How tall do you think you’ll need to have it to get it over the tree’s. Also, how heavy is your flag. I may be able to help you on this one.Sherpa JohnJuly 11, 2006 at 2:30 amPost count: 71
My flag is not very heavy at all. Light nylon…
The tree at the true summit is at least 40 feet tall. I can climb quite a ways up it as well. I’m gonna head up there in the next few weeks to scout it out.SilentCalModeratorJuly 11, 2006 at 1:09 pmPost count: 1291
Take pictures and email them to me. Also just for kicks, get a diameter of the tree where you think we could anchor it. How tall is your flag?OuttabreathParticipantJuly 11, 2006 at 4:32 pmPost count: 64
I still like the idea of tieing the flag to a helium balloon for Owls head. If anyone can get helium tank to Owls head it has to be SJ. :flag:
