I will be the first to admit, I am absolutely terrified of heights. I could not work in an industry where heights is an everyday thing. But, for Kevin Schmidt, well he loves his job. Climbing a 1,500 foot pole, no big deal.
He’s climbed hundreds of towers during the past eight years, in dozens of states, through every season, sometimes in 60 mph winds. It’s part of the job at Sioux Falls Tower and Communications.
For the rest of the world, Schmidt’s vertigo-inducing workday is anything but normal.
Check out this awesome video of him at work.
In this video, which is perhaps not for those with fear of heights, this tower technician scales a 1500-foot tower to change the lightbulb, snapping a selfie when he gets to the top.
