    Unless you're willing to share that with the rest of us, that's CHEATING!

    Wish I had one of 'em. I'm fine with getting up on my roof, just can't do all the trees I'd like to do.

    I calculated I'd need a 36' ladder to hit my top peaks..... and the roofline is too steep at some of these spots...

    I was about to rent one of these and a neighbor offered me the free use of one! Best neighborhood ever!

    btw, icicles were custom-made from Ray Wu.

    They are smart-pixels, 50 pixels to a 7' string.

    Here's a link to a similar design (I wanted 50-pixel strings -vs 60 pixel strings)

    Yup- thats why the free offer was so fortunate! Two of my neighbors were out for an evening walk and stopped to chat with me as i was testing some pixels outside. They asked what i had planned for this year And i explained "a lot, only thing im struggling with is how to get up to the 3rd floor peak" and they guy said his company had a lift, and the rest is history!

    Even if he didnt- i would have likely rented one.... It wouldnt be too bad- except you need to rent it at the end of the season too! :-(
