Higher and higher

Whenever I drive to Clayton on Business 70, I always gawk at the three big TV transmission towers out there. They hold the antennae for most of the local TV stations and many of the local radio stations. They're all 2,000 feet tall, and people have to climb them sometimes to do maintenance work.
Here's a great video of what it's like to climb a 1,700 foot tower. I can feel my head spinning as I watch it. Thanks to my pal Mike Moss for sharing this with me!
