Used to do a bit of travelling
Usually around the US. Love the country. To fund my travelling though I'd have to pick up work wherever I could, which usually involved menial construction jobs, labouring etc. Health and safety regs weren't great back then though (this was quite a few years ago). A lot of risks were taken, quite often people got hurt or worse. I remember on one particular job, a new skyscraper that was being built, we used to actually eat our lunch while sitting precariously on a steel girder a thousand feet up. Often ten of us or so on the same girder. Someone took a picture of it once that has since become quite famous. You may have seen it actually
