Getting up to something
Has anyone here had any experience with telescopic ladders? No of course not. Silly question.
I have just bought one online at half the price it would have cost me at B&Q and I am now waiting for someone to tell me that a friend of a friend lost all their toes and fingers by climbing up one to clear the gutters. I will remember this post the first time I use it and will probably wish I paid twice as much for it as I get halfway up.
I hate ladder racks on cars. They completely spoil the look of an elegant Volvo. This ladder will be out of sight on the inside. I used to have a 14 foot double extending ladder but it was a horrible thing to carry around and storage was a real nuisance.
I am going to have to use this thing in the next few days.
