20 mins after shutdown the aircraft slid forward from a bigger diameter log to a smaller one just ahead of it and just the weight of the aircraft sliding down broke that log. I flew back to camp with an Astar and came back with the AME and a faller (chainsaw guy) we cut the logs one by one forward of the broken one and slowly the nose came back down. When it was level or so, I got one engine going and moved a couple of 100 fts to the river and started #2, picked up the guys and went back to camp. No damage at all on the ST. The pad had the right number of logs and size.
