Gosh, JJ, your way sounds a lot safer than my Dad's. Dad was just a young pup of 40 when he put this contraption up. His plan was to generate his own power with a windmill, made with an old WWII fighter jet propeller (acquired at the scrapyard where he works) attached to the top of a very tall tree on his property. Alas, there was never enough wind, and the propeller eventually fell down somehow. The ladder, however, is still there. I started to climb it one day, but after 30 years, I don't trust it...LOL



Turn your head to the left to view:

Hey Ky,
This is exactly the kind of thing when accidents happen, I mean you cannot properly work at high elevation if you are not properly secured and working on top of a ladder is really dangerous anyway, I'd rather be out on a limb;))
