My first job after high school was a tower climber, made a whopping 16 bucks an hour to work a couple hundred feet off the ground. I tried to get back into a few years back but the companies did not want to pay for time to and from jobs and they worked all over the U.S. There was no chance I was spending 10-15 hours a week in a pickup not getting paid.

1768 foot tower, free climbing for a good portion. I would hate to forget a wrench.

SIL and my youngest son both have done it. Not those towers, but the windmill towers from 280-400 ft. up. My youngest has also welded on grain bridges over the Miss. river 200 ft up.

Myself, I can't even watch that stuff, makes me hurt and even sick at times.

Both got smarter I guess, one is a Heavy equipment operator now and the other is a plumber. LOL

Watched the weather channel last night. They had some of the worst jobs in the world. Guys sitting on a platform on the side of a helicopter while working on high line wires. Workers climbing and hanging off the rotor blades of wind towers repairing them. Parachutist fire fighters dropping into forest fires to fight them. Coast Guard water rescue personnel in Alaska.


Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love. They depart to teach us about loss.

Common sense is.the best friend I've ever had.

When I was in my 20's I was a mountain climber - really. A group of us would go out on our free time and climb shear face walls. I still have a crate full of ropes, harnesses, and other stuff in my attic. A few years ago, my crew had already left for the day and there was a small emergency that came up and required a bucket truck so I took the truck out myself. I hadn't been at heights for about 10 years at that point.

I spent the whole time holding onto the side of the bucket with one hand and trying to work with the other. I don't know what happened to me but I can't do heights any more.
