     I have one word for you to pass along to your neighbor, if you don't mind:  Darwin.

Subject: [TowerTalk] What NOT to do when climbing

Talking to a fellow club member (and close neighbor) during Field Day, I 
heard about a tower-climbing misfortune of his. On one occasion he 
climbed his 30+ ft tower without a belt because it was such a quick and 
easy job he had to do up there. Unfortunately, forgetting that this time 
he was not wearing a belt, he let go. He is very thankful that he landed 
on the grass rather than on the concrete, and no significant injuries 
were suffered..
