I'm far from wealthy but I don't need money bad enough to get me up that ladder.


In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

Right for this scenario, but think of those poor painters and roofers that do 2 and 3 story places. When I was young, I'd be right up that ladder, no problem. Now, I can barely hang Christmas lights on my 1 story or trim the tree without getting...concerned.

Few years ago they put a new roof on the 2 story office next door. 2 couldn't have been more 18 year old kids packed all the shingles up by hand. They couldn't have been much more than 5 foot tall and 120 lbs but they threw 2 flats of shingles over a shoulder and started walking up that latter, no hand on the latter. I watched for a few minutes. Them kids were like machines.

Went to help the old men change light bulbs in the church one day..... they used 3 wooden straight ladders from the fire dept..... two made an A frame, and a 3rd went vertical from there.... tied them together with two dress belts..... said they'd done it that way for years.....

Men at church that know better than everyone else (and I mean EVERYONE) is a whole separate subject.

Back in the day I had no problem with that height, but I’d be packing a fiberglass ladder. I carried a 28’ on my truck, that one in the pic is a 32’. If I needed a 32’ I could usually borrow one. Borrowed one from an old timer, it was a wooden 32’er. It was dang heavy. I got bold enough, that if I could get my ‘83 Toyota in a good position, I’d set my 28’ fiberglass in the bed in order to get some extra height.
I took my 28’ fiberglass ladder to the city trash disposal a few months ago. Just too difficult to carry anymore.

NO WAY. Not now at least.

'Maybe' when I younger but probably not then either. That is what bucket trucks are for.

At my age now (67) I hate to think of what a fall of even 10' would do. I don't bounce very well any more and bones are brittle.

Sheesssh....I'd be so "Humpty Dumptied" they never would get me put back together again.

I agree about not doing it now. But you can’t always get a bucket truck to every location.

I would rather go up that ladder than the built-in. Straight up ladders are scary, but at least you can harness-up and tie onto something secure.
I saw a guy painting the eave of a 4 story apartment building in Austin, he was higher than that. We went up and down the ladder like it was no big deal, while holding a bucket of paint.

True. But I guarantee you THAT sign was put up and serviced with a crane and bucket truck. Plenty of room around that one.

LONG ladders to service advertising signs is not the 'norm' for a reason.
