Life on the High Line

Hello this is from Jerry!! I just thought that I would let you all know what I have been up to at work. I have been a journeyman lineman since April and have worked in Chicago, just down the street from Wrigley Field, for the last 2 months. Then last week I was very excited to start in a new department as a transmission lineman!! Here are few pictures of what I will be doing for the next 3 years. We a setting 85ft poles for a 138,000 volt line.

Here are some of the new toys I will get to operate, 110ft trucks and a 187ft truck(not pictured), D8 and smaller caterpillar's, and everything is either 4x4 or has winch, or both. Fun fun fun!!!
