Yes, I know it was stupid. No, I don't know what I was thinking. But all is well, so I can laugh about it now.
So, I head out to the farm yesterday to cut a couple trees down that have been in my way all season, and to rotate my stand about 45* to get a better view of both pastures.
My stand is basically a wooden quad pod that holds one person comfortably, or 2 people tightly. We built a wooden roof, and some sides on it to block the elements. It is heavier than I thought. We were able to stand it up with 2 people, so I figured I could apin it a little with 1 person. I was wrong.
I tried lifting a leg at a time and pulling it, I tried pushing it. Then I had the brilliant idea that I could strap a leg to the truck, move it a couple inches, unhook it, do the same on the next leg, and do it slowly a couple inches at a time, til it was where I wanted. Well it worked flawlessly... The first 2 times I did it. On the third time, well, I guess I got a little over confident in how well my plan was working, and......
I flipped the dang thing over. Busted one of the legs to pieces, and the roof and sides we added fell apart. The good news is, a couple of 2x4s sandwiched around the broken one, and another 2x4 to replace the conduit as a brace, and I'll be back in business. Miraculously, it missed my truck, and it is a miracle, because I was using about a 3ft length of ratchet strap to pull it.
So in conclusion, dont try to do something alone, that you know requires help. Dodged a serious bullet on this one.
