I would so do that; used to be a tree worker so the height isn't the problem, it's the traveling. Those guys are never home and always in a hotel. And yes you get get PAID if you make it past the first week. Starting salaries 40 G's +, a seasoned guy could easily make over six figures.

Me and my son put up my first 100 ft tower when I got my amatuer radio license and that was high enough to scare me.
Just think about how the people felt who were jumping out of the World Trade center windows after the towel heads attacked.

I've done some hairy scary things in my line of work....but to hell with that shit. What got me was when they said OSHA allowed the free climbing without being tied off. And that scaffold laynard hooked on the climbing peg would serve no purpose of you fell sideways somehow.

Respect for those guys.

My dad used to climb wind turbines, but that's not even close to that tall. I'm no longer afraid of heights but damn that shits scary.

Holy shit!

I thought it was cool being on a 30' ladder on top of a 640' building in NYC. That puts what I do to shame.
