The Flagpole trick

Mattawamkeag, United States

So if you've ever heard of the tales of having your underwear flow up the flagpole at camp, you wonder urban legend or true camp nightmare? Well our summer found it to be urban legend.
That's not to say our flagpole did not have it's own adventure.
The wind blew really hard one night and the string around the pulley whipped off and was in a heap at the base of the flag pole the next.
We consulted with town hall...alot of campers are veterans and we want people to know they are camping in America and of course the park is public so the flag should fly.
We thought maybe the fire department could drive down with their ladder truck or something. Nope, they said when it happened at the town office (sharing building space with the fire department) they get a crane to put it up.
We're thinking crane, 7.6 Miles of dirt road, expensive, not in our budget.
So handy dandy husband who dreams of fly fishing in his spare time(nonexistant) decided to use his rod and hook-up the flag.

Pretty impressive...
