Howdy you city dwellers who have a hard time cutting natural forks from the trees in city parks:

 

I have some seasoned forks that I am willing to make available for free ( if you live in the US and are willing to reimburse me for the cost of USPS postage.)

Just post a response, stating how many you'd like and give me your best sob story as to why you can't just go out and cut a fork out of your neighbor's front yard. There are a few forks cut from HD plywood as well.  I am not going to be using them so they might as well go to someone who would.

Some good looking forks in there. Will make for some very lucky CONUS members.

A generous offer.

What does CONUS mean?

Continental USA. It's a shipping term to describe USA, meaning not shipping to Canada or overseas.

This is a really nice idea! I am very fortunate myself so I won't ask for one even though it is tempting ;)

I live 2 blocks away from a huge forest. The only way to go up is to live IN the forest for me :D

Nah, I live in Sweden :) What I've seen so far is hares, squirrels, deer, wood pecker, owl and eagle (not 100% sure about the last two though). I haven't seen any beavers yet but I harvest forks from the trees they cut down. Gotta love 'em! :)

I see 6-8 that I would love to get my hands on.

You guys better take him up on this offer soon, or I'm relocating to Fargo and getting them shipped to me.

Wow, no offense but I feel bad for the people that have to travel 34 miles to find some kind of forested area.  I'm fortunate and I need to remember that!
