    Somebody started a thread on this, or a similar video a while back. My hands get clammy just watching it.

    I have always said I am not afraid of heights, I'm just afraid of falling from them.

    What do these guys get paid?

  6. I have a buddy who works for Progress Energy as a line/pole man. He makes about 70k a year and hes only 24. He deals with heights but only in the hundreds of feet not thousands. Scary stuff!!

    I would literally crap my pants if I looked down. You know at that height, the tower has to be swaying in the wind...

    That would be a awesome job to have! I've always been a thrillseeker or daredevil. I love doing crazy and spontaneous things!
     
  10. One of my buddies does this for the State of Arkansas. He works on all transmission towers for the Arkansas Highway Department and State Patrol. I believe there are 2 of those 1700' towers here, and countless shorter ones, I tried to call him to verify, but more than likely he is climbing. LOL. He sends me videos every now and then of him swinging from his harness around the tower.... like a tether ball... LOL.

    NOT ENOUGH!! There is no way I could do this! I can barely watch the video from the safety of the ground. You couldn't pay me enough to free climb like that (or climb with a safety). I would proudly admit I'm chicken on this one.
