    Wow! You need to start cycling with a chainsaw to clear the road!!!

    Ash, a chainsaw could take care of the trees, but do nothing for the concrete utility poles and wires. And in many places things are balanced precariously, so doing a cut could cause big sudden shifts. We need your expertise here!

    I'd be worried about all the wires...but i guess it's all inactive?

    Looks like you did more climbing, ducking and walking than bicycling. Great adventure.

    I'm sure that the power was out, but nevertheless I didn't take any chances and made sure not to touch the very little exposed wire (mostly wire junctions) that we saw. All the high-power cables were clad in rubber.
