  1. Climbing a Transmission Tower

    I'm not good with heights but I'll climb a camera tower if I have to. Over the years I've climbed some dubious ladders and had some hairy moments, and I've often told stories about them.

It's even more insane than you expect.

    You can subscribe to the channel at www.youtube.com/user/MediaCollege.
