    This may have been covered before....... if so :-( The undie fence on the side of the road up to Falls used to be a point of discussion with my kids with the unusual array of jocks an other under garments. It appears that it is being cleared regularly, is that the case????

    Every year gets cleared a few times...not sure by who. The past couple of years it has been beautifully supported and then is cleared up. Highlight last year was a family who all had a pair of their undies lined up. This year up to a week or so ago it was looking great, very tidy and a great array of 'smalls'. Am thinking that our local community should look at getting a grant to establish it as a community art installation and protect 'Undie Corner' from random cleanups.

    And then fine them for littering.

    Was really pleased to drive up the mountain last Saturday and see that the mess had been removed.

    Oh I thought something strange was going on. Every couple of weeks I hang a few of my reg grundies up there to dry & when I come back in the arvo sometimes they're gone!!! WTF

    I can recall a similar underwear tree when riding the village chair in days gone by.

    There's a string of pine or fir trees halfway up one of the liftlines at Stevens Pass in Washington, which is constantly decked out in bras and bead necklaces - offerings to the snow gods for a bountiful season.

    There was also the bra fence along the road in the Cardrona valley a few years back.
