  Don't forget you `pick' a section a couple of inches from the center 
in such a way that it is balanced with the end YOU want down on the 
heavy end. This keeps you from having to fight the section to get it
place.  A 30 foot gin pole works fine placing 20 foot sections.
        (20' below and 10+ a few inches above)
(A real gin pole, not 30' of tower {which can be used} slides on a
as it is `jumped' up the tower.)

      I upgraded to LINUX, the more I use it, the more I love it.
        It doesn't do everything for you, you must program it.
