    flat land rigging

    Just in case I am MC'ing out in the Flat Lands, No Trees could/would it be cool to rig a hang off a electrical pole or tower? I suppose if you used a pole a gye wire from the pole could be used.. that is if you can tie a no slippy knot

    Stay away from power poles. I used to be a lineman and saw alot of damage done by strange electrical mishaps. Same goes for metal towers, guy wires etc. You could get FRIED (and I don't mean like in the 70's man)

    Can't remember who it was or where I read it (maybe Whiteblaze?) but somebody strung up to a light pole at or near Fontana and the whole thing came down (was rotten). I wouldn't trust them even if you weren't going to get fried.

    You ever walk down the railroad tracks and see the glass insulators that have fallen. Man if one of those smacked someone it would be a bad day. Looks like they fall all the time.
