    economy is absurdly important to me. Not looking to mod 'er unless its something cheap and easy for the interior.

    Here's the truck at one of my towers in Gainesville

    yep, we're a nutty breed.

    People say: " I could never climb towers"

    and i say: "When you wake up and have bills, or a hungry family, you climb the tower"

    It varies wildly. the hours can be difficult. A lot of night work. My work now is exclusively on the ground, dealing with the equipment below.

    Tower dogs make 10-25/hr depending on the job. (though I didn't) You start out usually on the ground doing conduit work, digging, trenching, etc and can make more on the lousier jobs like climbing and tower painting.

    I make about 30/hr and work from home, calling out to address emergencies and doing routine maintenance. When there's an issue, we call the climbers. Cant ask for a better job
