    @Pa1963, I'm with you on this one. I'm a veteran and knew that I could be killed by a bullet, grenade or anything else but I don't have big enough ones to even apply to do this.... My respect to these guys!!!!

    While I'd like to say no problem I know how much training these guys endure to learn all of the safety procedures down cold 10 times over. Their safety protocol makes training for a space flight look like taking a ride in an elevator. I've been out to the tip of the boom on tower cranes to clear fouled cables and do other repairs which were probably higher off the ground than those guys the difference there was there was no 500K volts to worry about.

    Ha! Vinnie, that line reminds me of a photo I saw quite some time ago with the same caption, a sweet young thing standing behind the south end of a northbound elephant with a large burlap bag in her hands, her back was arched backward, her arms were at ..... well, I guess at "arm's length", and this elephant was just dropping a huge basket ball sized lump of ....uh, well you get the picture ....
