I have a couple of "aloft" projects, one on a huge, flat roof at work where the only drawbacks are A) heat, B) I'm going to need wall-socket juice for a heavy-duty heat-shrink gun and that will mean hauling a hundred-fifty foot (or more) extension cord more up a fifteen-foot ladder and C) heat.
The other one is here at home, periodic replacement of the farm-type outdoor light that illuminates the back yard -- when it works. It's all ladder-type work, twelve feet up, and I'll have to shut off breaker number one, which protects one of the four original circuits in the house and includes about three-quarters of the overhead lights. No real excuse for this one, other than I don't want to do it when I'm tired or dizzy, or it's raining or beastly hot.
Gonna have to, though, before too long.
