Ahhhhhh tower work.
Hard as hell to do when you are using both arms locked around the tower holding on for dear life as you look down...............
And that was only on our 100 ft. tall windmill tower. Idiot from R.I. who came to help work on it climbed to the top with me right behind him. After he got to the top, he started shaking it to see how far it would sway. I damn near splattered the guys on the ground with brown matter !!!!!!!
And he says, boy you got yourself a good one here, it only sways a few feet.
Only took me about 10 months to trust my climbing belt. Of course then I got 1 that also had the ass strap so I could take some of the strain off my aching calves and ankles.
Yep you're right Fred, definitely a young man's game. But it was fun at the time. We had a standing/sitting plate at the 80' mark. That was where we had the conversion plate from the old to the new section. I especially liked the end of the day getting a few brews tossed in the bucket bag
before climbing down.
Damn Fred, what haven't you done ??????
