    Oh my. No way. I'm terrified just watching the video. I'm so glad there are people who do that, because like you, Mrs. C, there is no amount of money that would get me up there.

    I'm getting dizzy just watching the video! I stopped very early into it.

    In the Air Force, I use to ride around in the back of a C-130 with the doors open all the time. Didn't bother me a bit. But that video freaked me out.

    I don't know whey they don't wear parachutes. At that altitude, you easily have time to open it.

    He didn't even look like he was really holding on! Oy. Thank you, dude who keeps my cell tower working. You are special.

    On a serious note, in the last couple of years, someone fell off a tower like that (a worker) not far from here. I think he was 1,500 feet up.

    I'm glad that there are people who are able to do that because I certainly could not!!

    Okay, I think I could do it, but there is NO WAY I'd even try it without safety cables. No free climbing for me.
