Because of the height, bubble levels really aren't much good.
If you can't "shoot it" with a transit, a plumb bob is the
second best. Even 6' levels have a great error when you're looking
at 100 + feet.
> Check your hardware stores for a "corner level." It has bubble levels on
> three axes instead of the one in a torpedo level. You can ty-wrap it to a leg
> and keep a continual check on level as you stack and guy.
