Approved BB submission
I got to do this BB today!  I realized it was time to fix the roof on the barn.  It's a bad sign when you can see outside from inside.  The repair was easy, the access was not due to the pitch of the roof and the slope of the ground below.  But with the proper application of mass to the bottom of the ladder, I survived.  All I had to do was pull out the nails that had pulled loose and replace them with roofing screws.
