Pencil-Person Technique

Pencil-Person Technique is when someone stands far away from a flagpole, tree, etc... with another person standing by it. The person that is far away takes a pencil, measures the point to their head and puts their finger where the guys feet is, and they start moving up the tree or flagpole until they get to the top. When you get to the top, you multiply how many times you moved up by the guy's height and that's how many feet the flagpole or tree is. The measurement we got was 30 feet.
