    Going well so far...up at 3, laundry & breakfast done, boat load of house cleaning finished, and furnace guys showed at 8 to start installing the new unit.

    Install took about 6.5 hours. Nice & toasty again...super quiet too! Just in time for the new cold front.

    Poor guy had to run the exhaust & intake through the RR timbers that set on the foundation...ruined two forstner bits even with cooling them in a bucket.

I used a loop runner choked on the PVC pipes at the first anchor at the peak of the roof and tied my lifeline into that. I used a short 35' rope so it wasn't dangling off the edge. I could lean out off either side of the roof and cut stuff far enough back to clear everything.

    Here's a couple pics from one I did in January 2009, probably one of the last ones I rode the roof.

    That’s cool Brian. They had the same type pvc setup on the corners of that thing. Worked well for most lines.

    Today was a bit rushed trying to finish up a job. My 3 day road project took all week because I kept getting pulled off to do others things. We got it done though. Boss is happy. Everyone made it home safe so I’m happy. Off to the next contract on Monday. Also got a phone call from someone I used to work with wanting to sell me a used for one day protos. $200. I’m probably gonna pick it up Sunday. Mines four years old and I can get get a basically new one for 33% off I might as well.
