Size matters

I was remembering a story a friend in the oil heat business told me about how his father would bring him on jobs when he was a kid because he was the right size to fit inside a commercial boiler and scrub out the soot. He wasn't happy about it, but Father knows best. He ended up owning the company.

That got me thinking about the tight places and scary places you guys have to visit. I'd love to hear your stories about Big Guys and Little Guys and how things get done in the real world. Have at it.
Retired and loving it.

    Hi, I still get to visit some snug places. Here are my feet. I was 6'-2" last I knew, but can bend OK to get around in cramped quarters. It probably helps that I used to go spelunking a bit. ;)

    Yours, Larry

    Larry, you definitely need a MiniMe. One with big arms.
