Theme of the Day: Watch out for large vehicles!

The theme for the day is a bit misleading. I was at only one point in any danger. (It was at a crosswalk where I had a green light and a pedestrian walk signal. A van turned in front of me, but I saw him in time. I possibly said a few foul things to the back of the van....)
|There are actually two trucks on the trail. I waited for|
them to finish cutting a limb down before I passed.
The other two occurrences happened on the trail itself. First, I came upon a couple of trucks cutting broken limbs along the trail. Second, I found the tank that is in Bunker Hills Regional Park by the Veteran’s Memorial. Yes, a tank. Rodney had just read about the tank the other day, so I knew it was in the park somewhere. I just happened to see the sign for the Veteran's Memorial today, so I swung past to take a look. It was quite moving actually. (Not the tank part. I don't find weapons to be a cause for sentimentality.)

|That sign reads: Warning Please Stay Off Tank|
Really? What child is going to stay off the tank?
