in that video hes taking down a huge stack from the top down,a brick at a time,with hammer and chisel.

Before there was clean sanitary water to drink , which we all take for granted, there was beer......Even with beer , whiskey , vodka I wouldn’t be up there. But I could perhaps be of some value down below

I would not do that today, for any amount of money. However, when I was 16 yrs. old I started working for a painting contractor and worked for him in the summers until I got drafted in '66. We put of some sketchy ladder arrangements at times. This guy had clients that owned million dollar homes and farmers that needed their barns painted. He had a bunch of teachers working for him in the summer and they needed someone younger and dumber than them to do the really high stuff. That's where I came in. We had this one barn that was the largest one that I had seen. The peak was well over 60' high. So we ran up two 50 ft. extension ladders all the way out. They were wooden in those days and bowed like crazy when them run all the way out. Then myself and one other guys would grab each end of a 20' walkboard that was 12" wide and take it up about 4 rungs from the top, where we had a ladder jack set up to set the walkboard onto. We would then carry our paint buckets and brushes up and two or three of us would stand on that walkboard and start painting. Nobody could reach the peak though. It was about 6 feet above my reach and I was the tallest guy on the crew. So I went down, tied a rope to a 6' step ladder and carried the rope up. We then pulled the stepladder up and opened it up put the first step on the walkboard and the lowest support bar on the backside of the ladder on the board. One guy grabbed each side of the ladder to steady and it and I climbed up and stood on the top of that ladder to reach the peak of the barn. I did that more than once and got paid a $1.50 an hour to do it. Today, if that step ladder was sitting on the ground, I would not stand on the top. I have turned chicken in my old age.

I also recall one time we were painting this three story home and we had those ladders run all the way out but we could reach the top of the house with the walkboard and the ladders run all the way out. But a sudden storm came up. We were on the east side of the house and the storm came from the west and caught us off guard. The next thing we knew the wind came whipping around the corner of the house so hard that it literally knocked the ladders out from under us. Two of us were up there, myself and Virgil Davidson. Virgil and I fortunately were each painting a window and we had them open. Just as the wind hit the ladders started sliding sideways and Virgil was in position to jump into the open window, but my window wasn't quite open far enough so I dropped my brush and bucket and grabbed the gutter of the house. Virgil came over and opened up the window further and i swung my feet in and was able to let go with one hand and grab the window frame and them pull myself in. Back then it didn't stop me from working, but now I would have to find another job.

I have a hard enough time cleaning out stuff on the roof of my coach.
