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.

THAT IS SOO COOL!
Where can I apply?!?

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!
