Thats cool Jason. I put up 5000 ft in 3 of my trees this year. But its nothing compared to those right there. I'll post mine tomorrow morning. But thats just incredible. When I put up lights, I charge $2.00 a ft. I would have made a killing off your yard. You crack me up man.

Re: So uh, anyone else put up christmas lights?

Alot?!?!?

Hehe, I'll post pics of my cords I made to power it all tomorrow. Each one uses a Mil-Spec explosion proof locked enclosure on one end with 16 20 amp GFCI protected outlets which is powered by a 150 foot 6-4 SO cable cord then to a 50 amp 4 pole plug. And I made two of those, one for each side of the yard.

Power bill is usually about $300 more a month when there on [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: So uh, anyone else put up christmas lights?

Dude, you need to get a life. hehe.

I put up Christmas lights last year but no one cared so I'm not going to do it this year. I outlined my entire house with white lights. It's a bitch to do with so much snow on the ground. Not to mention my house is 30' up at I only have a 24' extension ladder.

I did do some snow wheelin' in my backyard today. I'll post pictures later.
