my new job/job site
 
I started a new job, or I guess you could say a new position at a job I had. None the less, here are some pics from my first day.

I am working 1100ft above sea level, 500ft about hot spring, 225ft of the ground(basicly that middle bracket of the antenna. I am now a tower climber for broadwaves wifi of hot springs, went from(but still do) computer tech to tower climber, but hey its all fun!!!!!!! see you at the top!!!!

Oh dear lord it would take a couple guys with guns to make me climb that, and even then I might put up a fight. <shudder>


great pics though :D

amy 04-16-2007 12:31 AM

Wow, great pics. Good luck in your new job.

I wouldn't have any trouble climbing up there. It's the climbing back down (looking down to place my feet) that would get me.

AzTJ 04-16-2007 12:32 AM

That first pic made me a little dizzy - congrats on the new altitude! :D

jjseel 04-16-2007 03:43 AM

Whatta view! Hope ya like it! Me and a buddy climbed a microwave tower just after it had been built (about 25 yrs ago) and took pics just about like that. Aaah, memories....

I'm suprised you didn't tell em about me getting stuck on the roof.;)
My first truck was an old Kenworth cabover, I had trouble just getting used to climbing into that. there's no way anybody would get me up a tower :eek:

Scout 04-16-2007 08:00 AM

That makes me dizzy and makes my palms sweat.

Odhinn 04-16-2007 08:23 AM

Nice view, It's really not the altitude that freaks me out but the thought of hitting the group.

Odhinn 04-16-2007 08:41 AM

Ground.

tiny terror 04-16-2007 09:02 AM

Hitting a group on the ground would probably be bad too, Odhinn. :D

Odhinn 04-16-2007 09:09 AM

Yep, once again I was slower then the timer to fix my post, lol

Texapple 04-16-2007 09:27 AM

great views...but way too scary for me :eek:

mswilder 04-16-2007 09:01 PM

Ohhh and also I didnt mention, that I had to start because there where 60-80mph winds that broke 2 of the cables, so we had to climb to repair them. so I climbed 225 in winds, at that alttitude, of between 60-100MPH, the tower was swaying appox 5-10 ft side to side, that was scary. so everything else that i do now will be no PROBLEM!!!!!

amerijeep 04-16-2007 09:07 PM

If that tower fell, would the force of gravity be less at the top than at the bottom. Wouldn't the speed be increased the lower you were on the tower?

Wouldn't the speed be faster at the top of the tower since it has to travel a greater distance to reach the ground?

Did I read your question right? :confused:

rebelBullDawg325 04-16-2007 09:26 PM

theres a water tower just up the street a piece that we can climb. well, not supposed to be, but it can be done

Yeah, you read it right. I'm not good at physics. You might be right.

Engineers?

Scout 04-16-2007 09:41 PM

I'm not good at it either.

Everytime I look at those pictures I get dizzy. I like my job down here on earth.

rebelBullDawg325 04-16-2007 09:48 PM

i dont understand the question. but i'm pretty good at physics

You must suck at physics.

Actually I suck at asking intelligent questions. We are uneducated hicks down here in Mississippi.

Better? :D

RatherBNarizona 04-16-2007 10:27 PM

so i'm guessing ur not scared of heights?
ahhhhh!!!!

amy 04-16-2007 10:33 PM

Ok you guys, quit bein' so sciencey. You're makin my brain hurt.

And, the answer to your question is no.:cool:

1BLKJP 04-17-2007 01:45 AM

I would imagine that a person that high up would hit maximum velocity fairly quickly and therefore the fall wouldn't matter if you were 60 ft up or 225, you are still going to be a little puddle at the bottom.

Why, do you wear sandals ?

bluvikng 04-17-2007 02:25 PM

way to go, steeple chaser.

Chickdey 04-17-2007 02:33 PM

Wow amazing view! I'm a computer tech as well, but I don't see tower climbing in my future anytime soon. :)
