    #1: Is that how you guys took down your towers after REFORGER?

    • Wirecutter says:

      Shit, REFORGER was just one of 4-5 field problems we went out on every winter.
      Our towers were guyed every 18 feet. We had 9-10 guy lines per corner – I’ve seen an anchor pulled out with 3 guy lines slacked and the sonofabitch was still standing.

        Germany. 44th and 1st Signal Battalions. Able Archer ’86, WINTEX ’87, REFORGER ’87, Able Archer ’87, Crested Eagle ’88, Blazing Torch ’88, Able Archer ’88, Scarlet Knight ’89. Always referred to the 205′ tactical communications towers as artillery aiming stakes for the Warsaw Pact. Great views from up there; I was up top once when a Luftwaffe F-104 flew below my perch and he was waving at me as he flew past. Good times.

    #1- No “Infrastructure” is Safe from Battery-Powered Cutting tools….
    #2- Railway Bridge on a side Road here does that about once a Month.
    #5- Asian Chick bending Frying Pan- serious Marriage Material there.

      I’ve said for years that if burglars understood how to use battery operated tools, and knew anything about construction, we’d all be in trouble.

      • carolann says:

        Yes.. .BMW Isetta … my brother who was a car nut once purchased a house that had an Isetta half buried in a garage… he rescued it and restored it… cute little thing … but riding it in made you feel like it would tip over at any moment…

    Looks like a BMW badge on the front

  8. Bright Eyes says:

    Jerry Farwell of Liberty University had a tower built in the nineties. It was blocking tv reception for the folks of Lynchburg Va. After protesting and nothing happening one night some good ol boys went out and cut the guy wires and she fell. He never rebuilt.

  9. nwoldude says:

    #10 A neighbor back in the hood had a vehicle like this 50-60 years back. Believe it was called an “Isetta” or something like that.
