A lot of my caver friends have gotten into repairing wind turbines. Several work cell towers. Both jobs are periodic, so lots of free time. You still have to take the courses to prove you know what you are doing. I have several friends who teach the courses. Go figure.

Rigging is part of most trades, and not a trade in and of itself.

I beg to differ and suggest that view is why there's no shortage of bad rigging out there.

I agree Chief, if rigging is not a trade, then what the hell, have we been do all these years, living in the Matrix.

Well, what I meant is that there are boilermaker or ironworker riggers, just like boilermaker mechanics or welders. There isn't a building trades called "riggers".

As a high school drop out, rigging and guiding are the only things that I'm qualified for. I even know when and when not to bust out a comma, and understand the difference between are and our.

Larry,

You'd get some red ink on that post, trust me...

That's a sad commentary brother, are you saying... riggers are stupid and uneducated?

That is certainly not the case with the folks I work with. In Hollywood, riggers are often considered the smartest people on the set. Flying humans at high speed, is not like burying dog turds in the back yard.

Get your GED, Brother... Buck up and do something with your life, success is a choice.


Blue, get a hold of yourself, LOL... Rigger!

If Coz aint't available, seek the Braun.

Werner has been known to launch school-busses full of kids off cliffs just to test his rigging,

They all lived, of course, because Werner willed it so.

Bow down to the Braun....

Coz, are you calling me stupid? I'm just speaking from personal experience. Please red ink me. I'd be honored.

Absolutely not, Larry,

Sorry... not my intent, Brother... when you said you don't have an HS diploma; so you feel you must rig or guide, I felt bad for you.

You seem like a bright guy, so why not get a GED and use your mind. Go on to collage, whatever...

In my life, I never believed in God, fate, karma, luck or any of that massage oil crap.

I believed in going out and making my own luck, and decided to be a success.

well maybe in hollywood the riggers rule the intellectual roost but up in BC they function at a lower standard. Witness, the IATSI fraternity of Stunt Riggers and Smoke technicians of BC AGM of 2002. Blindman Beckham, Too Tall, Corby and Lean Dickwood presiding:

Haha! You can't seem to get much love here, Coz. Whatever...

Everybody sucks Largo and Bachar dick. And I love both of those guys, as I'm sure you do as well.

Don't let people drag you down. You know this. F*#k them! Do what you do.
