This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the iron badge in woodland care.

For this BB, you will lift a 16 foot long, 15 inch diameter log 16 feet off the ground and place it on a structure with a gin pole!

Here is something being lifted with a gin pole:


For more information, check out the permies thread gin pole mounted on a tractor.

The requirements for this BB are to do the following:

     o lift a 16 foot long, 15 inch diameter log 16 feet off the ground and place it on a structure
     o it can be a tractor mounted gin pole or a traditional style

To get certified for this BB, provide proof of the following as either pictures of a video (<2 mins):
     o log tied to the gin pole before lifting
     o action shot of lifting the log with a gin pole
     o log on the structure while still tied to the gin pole
 
Think of how dumb the average person is. Mathematically, half of them are EVEN DUMBER. Smart tiny ad:
