Terribly afraid of heights...terribly!

I could not do that job lol...
LMAO!! Right....you must pee your pants on the lift

AS far as heights goes, I'm not scared at all as long as I am the one doing the rigging. I've worked on all types of scaffolding/lifts all my life, from 3-4 section residential, to boom lifts that go 60' up. I set steel on the Nugget tower in Reno from the 10th to 17th floor, and hung acoustic tile in the ceiling of the dome in the Silver Legacy.

I try to avoid flying if at all possible, it's not really a fear of flying, it's the man made/maintained hunk of shit that bothers me. If it was just snowolf flying a plane that he knows/checks, then fine...it's commercial that bothers me, who knows what kind of over worked underpaid crack head is turning wrenches on those things
