I'm a little slow but here's my experience.

What's the deal with putting the bolts in the way Rohn
specifies? Does anybody do it that way? 

Every tower I've ever been to or climbed on has the bolts inserted from the 
outside with the nuts on the inside.  Even the pictures on the Rohn website 
show them that way.  Just try climbing a tower that would have the bolts 
inserted from the inside with the bolt and nut sticking out from the tower leg. 
 Just one snag on your flesh will convince you why they are not done that way.  
And if you use binoculars, you should be able to see virtually alll from the 
ground.  Finally of course this is something you inspect during your annual 
maintenance climb up the tower.  We all do that, right?
