Tower Takedown

I've had several meteorological towers on my land for the past 4-5 years. Recently, the owner of the tallest tower asked me to take it down so they could set it up on the OU campus for a field project.

It's not too hard for one person to take down a 50 foot tower. But doing it without damaging the tower, yourself, or the instruments at the top of it... that's a challenge! I don't even remember how I was able to get it to hang upside-down from a tree, but it worked! The tower and I escaped with only minor scratches.
