    My luck is it would simply be the tool I need the most, but thats ok, as soon as I get up there, I realize I should have went to the restroom beofore I climbed my fat a$$ up there. At least my trip down will be worthwile one way or the other.

    Depends on what kind of job I'm doing in the attic.
    Get back to work.

    How many of us are lazy enough to try a tool that we have instead of going back to the truck to get the right tool? And then end up wasting more time in the process and still have to go get the right tool.

    Note:
    I keep my flashlight and my Gerber on my side.
    Karst means cave. So, I search for caves.

    happens all the time, go up ladder forget what I went up for in the first place. Thought I would try something new, stopped halfway up ladder to think of what it was, 3 minutes later, can't remeber if I was going up the ladder to get something or coming down the ladder to get something.

    Getting older really is a *****....LOL
