This brought up another problem solving/learning opportunity. How to get more pulling distance out of my block and tackle. Rigged with 100 feet of rope I had only a 25 foot pull. Two anchor points would do the trick but there would need to be a way to tie off the par buckled rope and hold the log midway on the ramp while re-rigging the block and tackle for a second pull.
