Building the Tripod--and the Fourth Post...

Yesterday, it was time to put up more poles. Fifteen footers! Since there are three of us working on this project this week (and the logs are much too heavy for us to just grunt up into place)--we built a Tripod with a pulley system.

Duane (a nursing student) came up with GG to help us out for three days. A strong man--thank God he is a student and hungry for a bit of extra cash. Here Duane gets ready to drill the Lag Screw into the fourth post

Drilling the hole for the fourth post...with the Tripod in place:
