Coming home last week we saw two guys hanging on a line off a helicopter going 100mph+!!!! They picked them off those tall power poles; CRAZY STUFF! I couldn't get my camera in time.

I think if I were to do the job I would have to drink a pint of high octaine a night just to steady my nerves.

Heights never used to bother me until I fell off of an airplane wing (I was wearing a safety strap attatched to 20 feet of rope) and dangled above the ocean until I was hoisted back onto the ship, after that I don't even like being on a six foot ladder.

BPA, Idaho power, pacific power, PGE. Look for openings and apply. They want basic algebra skills and proof that you have passed on your genetics, that you can party like a rock star, and can't catch chinook...your a shoe in!
