There's a clothesline that was here when we bought this place that will last for another thousand years!
4" welded tube and a ton of concrete.
You could use one of the "T"s to pull an engine easily..... they weren't messing around!

Looks like the kind of thing my dad would build. He did everything in industrial style. I do know that we used to swing like monkeys on the one he installed at our house. Don't know about an engine but it would hold well over 100 lbs of kids.

Oh heck yeah, this could hold a LOT of kids! LOL (and their parents too!)
36' between the two poles, 3 lines can be attached to the welded loops.

You and yer paint.....
Whatever paint 'they' used was pretty good though, I have to admit.
7 years here and I didn't paint it! Maybe this summer, now that my inside of the home is close to done? I need to get some new line too, the goats got hold of the old ones...... !#$@!@! goats.....

Look who came to supper. I called the owners and told them their son's 4H project animals were "on the lamb" and if these goats weren't theirs I would have to call the sheriff and get him to "grill" them to see who they belonged to. Did you know goats love flowers and other shrubbery. You should have seen my wife chasing them with a tobacco stick trying to keep them away till the owners came for them. Wish I had gotten a picture of her! Those suckers walked about a mile to get to us!

If it's green and growing, they eat it, yup. And even if it's not growing! We use ours as garbage disposals. Them and the chickens... between the two they eat just about everything we'd otherwise throw away.

I read a story recently about a company that would rent out goats to use as a green way to clear land. And they could do steep hills.. whatever.

Here, I just googled it and found a similiar thing.

Looks like some residual income, DM!

DM, Let me see if I can understand this. You have chickens and goats and you are stranded circling 3000 feet above the airport? Can't wait to see a picture of this contraption you are flying in!
