picked up a used 'light tower' (minus the generator and lights) for a modest $500.00...have begun stripping old paint and adding three new 'outriggers'...see My Projects (trying to upload pics but having trouble with site...???

tower cranks to 27 ft and will add additional 14 or so more feet to top...

I've thought of that same setup many times. Maybe mounting to a camper. Clamp an extra pole on top with guys for support...
Looking forward to seeing it progress... keep us updated!

Will post pics as soon as they answer my email and explain how

I don't think you can add pics to a project yet. You'd have to put them in your profile pics and add a caption for each each.

if you have attempted to start a project, you will note that when you add your second page, at the bottom a 'browse' link is avail for a picture...unfortunately, there is no 'upload' link, only a 'save' link...this does NOT upload the picture, only saves the general text...they have left out the 'upload' link....AND, they DO NOT answer their contact emails.......???
