My son was working a tower a few miles from me today and asked me to stop by and see him. I only had my phone so the pic sucks, but he's up there waving at me way on top.

Yikes! As a Bowhunter I shouldn't be afraid of heights but I am. I am comfortable but aware usually about 17', I'll go 20', 25 if I have to. At 30' I might as well wizz myself, that's all there is to it.

Here is a pic of a different approach to working on a tower that I took several years back as the power company replaced about 40 miles of metal power poles that went down in an ice storm. I prefer working with my feet on the ground! ADB

Well Jon,
I broke my wrist after falling of the second rung of my stepladder. If I fell from that height, I would more than likely break both legs and them some. wink. Not too coordinated anymore, and I don't like being up high.
Hope he is being paid the "BigBucks" to do that.

Jon, Great piture . How high up is your son? When working on boom trucks 150 feet was scary.

Yikes!!! Can't you use a parachute if you are at 700 ft. or higher? If so, might be worth wearing one.

OMG, I can't begin to imagine the guts it takes to do that. I know I get uncomfortable at about 8 feet. That figure goes down every year. Don

Jon - Thanks for sharing. When I was about eight I crawled up our windmill, about 20 feet. Looked up and the clouds were moving, I froze. Two hours latter hired men came home for dinner and rescued me. Pants were wet, but not full! Today, anything above 8 feet is to high for me.

I remember my dad talking about people that used to climb the windmill and saw the clouds and jumped off because they thought it was falling over. I dont like heights.
