Flipping through channels the other night
and saw Robin harking the Giant Ladder system.
Something that she's been doing for awhile.
While, I think she's still "got it going", she
like all of us, is aging. I am not saying that's bad,
god knows I am no longer have the body
that I had even 10 years ago, just that it
was a surprise to see her.
Mapquest says that's not real close to Houston ...
My insurance agent isn't even in my state, and luckily all business we
have done over the years has been by mail, phone, fax and email ... And,
yes, the person at the agency is still the same as 40 years ago ...
I am with Texas Farm Bureau and that seems to be protective, I am still
with the same office location but my agent has transferred to another
Texas Farm Bureau "franchise". I suspect that it works a lot like Amway.

Lord knows Giant Ladders need the help. Their product is overpriced

Giant, however had a very poor top connection method for using the
components for a low two-ladder, scaffold base. It was dangerous
Yeah thinking back, I will agree with the outer shell side of the
scaffold set up. The link on mine is to simply engage the lock pins
together is some sort of fashion. I bought a smaller clone by Gorilla
that had a very nice mating set that I used on both.
The one I linked does not open up into an extension ladder, it remains
in a step ladder orientation but does extend in that setting. I use it
mainly indoors specifically for our return air vent that is on an 11'
When I bought my first Little Giant, April 2000, they were the only ones
making that style ladder with a decent pivot lock.
