 The payload landed 3.1 miles from the forecasted location, and hung up in a tree about 80 feet above the ground. ​ Recovery teams were able to locate it, but could not get it down immediately. ​ Adam & Char (KC2ANT & KC2ULK) did some door-knocking in the area to get permission to go back into the woods. ​ As it happened, they came upon Chris Preston, a local arborist. ​ Though busy at the moment, he very generously climbed the tree the next day and retrieved our payload. The payload landed 3.1 miles from the forecasted location, and hung up in a tree about 80 feet above the ground. ​ Recovery teams were able to locate it, but could not get it down immediately. ​ Adam & Char (KC2ANT & KC2ULK) did some door-knocking in the area to get permission to go back into the woods. ​ As it happened, they came upon Chris Preston, a local arborist. ​ Though busy at the moment, he very generously climbed the tree the next day and retrieved our payload.
