    This is great, practical use of research. In the video, when you are building fence, what are you wearing on your back to carry fence posts?

      It’s a golf bag. Some folks I worked with in California introduced me to the idea. It was a great way to carry fence posts around. And instead of using the outside pocket for golf balls, I used it to carry extra fencing parts and my fence tester. I worked in an area where I wasn’t allowed to use a vehicle, so all I had was my legs and a pack. I preferred the golf bag to the backpack I used when I was building a mile of fence.
