    Got a few pics up, but don't know how to make them clicky yet. They are in the Member's Rides on page 20. Not many up, but enough to show off my rig.

    I'd venture to guess that very few people that have been zapped by those lines is around to tell about it. [​IMG] The lowest voltage overhead lines I know of are the ones in neighborhoods. They typically run at 13,500 volts and at pretty high current. Getting zapped by one of those would quickly turn you into toast. [​IMG]

    It isn't the volts that get you, it is the amperage. I have a good friend who workes for the electric company. He had worked around it for so long that he became complacent and it cost him his hands. Thankfully he is OK, but he has had to learn to do everything with prosthetics.

    Thanks for the complement on the rig. Never been zapped by the high voltage stuff though. The people I know who have were LUCKY to come away with all their fingers and toes. Ignorance at work can get you killed. I'm an instructor in the Air Force school here in Texas and haven't lost any students either.

    Yeah, it burned them so bad that they had to be amputated. It has been a couple of years now since his accident and he has gotten very good with using the prosthetics. Definitely changed his outlook on life!

    Highliner, Nice blazer. You wanna hear something really scary? I'm 35 and a cold apprentice. I've been with Tucson Electric for 10 years and just started my apprenticeship program 2 months ago. Am I STOOOPID or what? I read meters for a long time, went to substations for a bit and was a groundman for 3 yrs. Wish me luck and " lock yer damned knees when your climbing!"

    That jeep thing? Yah I understand it....... Like my Blazer? <a target="_blank" href=http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5>http://community.webshots.com/user/blazerk5</a>

    I've climbing up to 90 footers on gaffs. Never burned one all the way down (knock on wood). I have slipped a few times and caught back in after about 10 feet or so. It'll sure wake you up in the morning.

    Good luck too you for sure, Jim. Sounds like you've got plenty of good experience under your belt before getting started in the fun stuff. I'm sure you'll love it. Three years as a grunt should help out a lot. Same damn work, different view. Does your company compete in any rodeos? Maybe we'll see you at some in the future.

    Its alot different from the ground!!!!! Speaking of cutting out, I had to climb over four guys and 4 vertical dead ends today. The guy I was framing with forgot the hand line at the top of the pole and was already on the ground so I had the pleasure! I didn't cut out but man it was nerve wracking (60ft)
    We competed in the last rodeo in Kansas City in Sept. Not sure how they placed but I know they blew alot of other teams away. I think they were 31st overall. 1st time in a few years tho.
