"Forgot to mark your wire pull:"

From:James Bowe Set271@aol.com

Any number of wires at any length. Make pairs and wirenut leaving last one grounded or two open and grounded. Go to other end of pipe. Find open and/or grounded and pairs. Using open or grounded wire (call that #1) open a pair, splicing one of those to #1 and the other to another opened pair leap frogging the circuit through all the pairs. Mark the wires as you go. Now, when you go back to the beginning of the pipe run, find your #1 wire and the pair that has continuity with it. You can leap frog your way through the pairs using continuity and marking your wires as you go. This was an extra credit problem, from school, which nobody got. But when the teacher explained it, it was.
