Overcoming natural obstacles.
« on: April 02, 2007, 02:12:29 PM »
Most walls in my area have hedges, or thorny bushes on either 1 or both sides. If it's on the far side, I vault or pull up to the top of the wall, then jump from there. I avoid walls where I have to jump the plants first, or I'll work down to a place where I can squeeze through the plants...

How do you handle?

Funny how no activity on this topic for 2 1/2 months.

Thorny plants (bougainvillea, tiare, and kiawe) still slow me down. I still avoid them, if I can. If I can't, I move VERY carefully. Move depends on the height and position of the plant.

Well isn't that the point of thorns.  To keep other animals away?

I dont get many situations like that, but I usually go over it, or clear them if low enough. Not sure though, like I said, it is rare.
