    Default Ever have one of those "Don't want to do jack" days??

    Been having a few too many myself that has been killing me during the work day. Time drags by, but I just don't have the motivation to get anything going to maybe help the time move along a little faster

    Drop, I think it's called winter. I get them all the time after deer season is over. Spring tends to break me out of it though. lol

    I'm that way all the time. I've got one shed that needs torn down, I have another that needs new siding. Need to replace the kitchen floor. Have some tree limbs that are pulling on the electric line to the house, but I need a longer ladder (32'). It's just too cold out right now and I know that after not doing much the last few months my body is going to hurt afterwards. Need to get back into the gym. There's always something to do and not enough time---or should I say motivation. And the older I get the worse it gets. I gotta get off my *** and start at least one of them. Once I get started there will be no quitting. Don't let anybody kid you. Retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    You're correct, but how do you know this?

    just rent a 32 footer from HD or lowes for the day. imo the fiberglass ones feel lighter than alum does, and you really dont want to hit them lines with a 32 extended and a puff of wind makes you and that 26 7/8 draw lose it. can you say really top heav? if you really want to make it easy on yourself amd be safe rent a non self propelled -tow type bucket lift, the ones paint and pressure wash crews use for two or so story buildings .http://www.aerialliftequipment.com/inventory.php?id=285. should be able to find one at a commercial tool rental outlet.

    I can borrow a 32' aluminum to do most of the work, but definitely will get a fiberglass one for work around the electric wire. One zap from that would definitely recharge my pacemaker---if I had one. Don't matter, it would hurt. Another thing is that I plan on using my treestand harness. I kid around and tell the wife I could just tie a rope around my neck and keep it short enough that I won't hit the ground if I fall. LOL. Man, that would stretch me out some. I keep getting shorter as the discs in my back compress. Heck of it is I have a 35 year old son that doesn't want anything to do with climbing that high. Big pussy. Typical Gen Xer.

    I'll probably wait till spring to tackle that. The other jobs can be handled from ground level or just a step ladder. Just gotta get started. Thanks for the hints though.
