The pilot said that he saw power line poles near the approach end of runway 07, so he remained high on short final in case there were power lines running between the poles. This caused him to come in high to the 2,439 foot runway. He touched down long and fast, and in attempting to stop, ran off the side of the 35 foot wide runway. While he was attempting to stop on the damp grass beside the runway, the aircraft impacted a nearby mobile home. He later discovered that the section of power line off the end of the runway had been removed from the poles.
