Arb - The coolest job in the world?

With so many different aspects to this job, from tricky take-downs to planting, using big saws, big kit, down to the simplest pleasures. From great highs of a successful job to the heart-rending disappointment of hitting a hidden nail with a 4 foot bar and re-sharpening for what seems like an age at the end of the day. I had a cracking day yesterday, job going well and looking good, then my mate sent me a pic of one of his jobs, collecting buzzard chicks for the RSPB for ringing, aint they just soooo cute ( in a masculine predatory kinda way!)
Lets see and hear your tales of why this is just the coolest career.

Re: Arb - The coolest job in the world?

I get to pick my own days and my own hours, hang out in parks all day, do a job I really enjoy AND get payed for the priveledge.

How cool is that?!?

For the next couple of months I will be spending my time looking for these:

@andy collins. Can you define cool?? You dinosaurs might have a slightly different context. Haha
