Riding a Tree to Dairy Queen

This happened when I was about 18 years old. Bruce was cutting down a tree in my parents backyard. There was a large limb which John, Bruce, Chris and I grabbed out of the mess. We, all four, mounted it and rode it (like you would a stick horse) to the Dairy Queen, about a block away. We then parked it in a parking space and went inside to order our ice cream. I can't remember if we tried to order at the drive through or not. We did attempt to walk / ride bikes at the drive through a few times. They would generally not serve us. Anyway, this time we told the people that were working there that we had ridden there on a tree, and they did not believe us. So, when we left, we got back on our branch and rode around the place a couple of times doing cowboy whoops. What fun!
