Howdy all

This has been an interesting thread, but no one has touched on my problem.

If I get more that 10 feet in the air, I start getting very nervous.  The 
thought of climbing a 40 foot tower makes me break out in a sweat.  I have a 
small 2 section 36 foot crank-up, right next to the house, and I can step 
onto it from the roof of my shack when it is all the way down and the top 
section is resting on the ground.  That puts the top about 6 feet above the 
flat roof of my shack. I feel pretty comfortable that way.

I used to climb the big tree behind the house when I used to drink a lot :-) 
Was pretty brave then.

I think putting up a crank-up, tilt-over is the way to go, for me anyway.
