Watched "Dirty Jobs" with Mike Rowe a few years ago. He was working with a crew painting the Golden Gate bridge. They painted the supports and the cables. That man amazes me with some of the jobs he did on that show. Really pretty fearless and obviously not afraid of heights. The only job I ever remember he couldn't handle was at sea on Deadliest Catch. He lasted two days and never did get his "sea legs". That's another job that you'd never get me doing.

I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Just about every "climber" I have ever known has either "locked up" or had to deal with others who did.

Had a real good friend that did tree work as a climber. One day he was up about 25' and just totally locked up. Couldn't make himself turn loose of the tree or move. Had to get the FD to get him down. He never even tried to climb again.

My BIL had to leave a fella on top of a water tower once for the same reason. Guy had been climbing for years, then one day BANG, he was done. Took High rescue a cpl of hours top get him down.

I have never liked heights although I do have to work alot on roofs. I am about to quit doing that on anything over 1 story.

Caves I used to really enjoy going into. Not anymore. The older I get the more close places scare me.

Funny part for me is, I would love to be able to go up high, or deep into caves and such. Just can't do it.

Back in the 80s, we mined for over 2 years in an area that averaged 32Ē. We had to cut at least 30 inches to get the equipment through. You get used to crawling after a while. The worst thing was having to take a dump in a low mine.

The good things about low coal.....your posts were short and light, and if a rock fell out of the roof, it didnít hurt as bad as it did in an 8 foot high seam.

I used to be a Union Iron Worker. I built power plants, cell towers, bridges, 3 smoke stack along with many other projects. I also do tree work. Heights never bothered me, but working at heights in winter or rain thing get really slick, and let's not even discuss spring pop up thunderstorms.

Life insurance and welding skill came to mind as I watched that. No amount of money would get me up there.

Not for the weak that is for sure. Was up a 75 footah one time in a snow storm first pole on a rivers edge and an angle pole to boot. The river was downI would say another 40 feet or better. Long ways down. LOL The spots lights from the ground didn't help one bit, I had a headlamp which helped some. It was the one time I was a bit concerned couldn't see my feet from the blowing snow. I was in hooks/belt on a wood structure. I got my work done up there and lived to tell about it. Live by prayers and on the edge. LOL

Its really not that bad. Big babies. Once climbed a 500'er outside of Billings up on the suicide cliffs at night with no safety cable to repair a blown beacon bulb. And was super excited to do it. My best tower climb.

Sorry. Finally had my chance to be that guy on trapperman
