I'm hoping to go the other way, it's not all above money believe me, just spent 5 and a half hours in the car today travelling to and from work then spent 8 hours on a building site with 300 bosnians for £120 (less £30 diesel costs). Is it worth it? you decide... I already have.

Deer man, I have two jobs as it is: arb and bar work.

 

Steve, haha I did think that when I posted, but it is true. Probably come to the Cirencester shows and do a bit of rec climbing, otherwise I'm gonna get Faaaat!

 

Stihlwatersrundeep; Building sites and long commutes are two of my pet hates.

 

I'll miss the dirty jokes and jokingly sexist/racist/shock value insults and comments, plus the lechery in the summer, but I'm not climbing more than an hour a week these days, as the other climber in our 3/4 man gang has 20+yrs experience. Bit annoying, really.

Renta,

 

You should never leave treework completely. Dont go cold turkey and vow never to work with trees again as some of my friends have done. Always keep a hand in, that way you can make some quick money at the weekend by removing a small tree or cutting a hedge.

 

I've never understood why people leave treework 'forever'.

Good luck mate, it takes a lot to make a decision like that. I for one can see us flogging ourselves all our lives and never living comfortably. All i want out of life is to be happy,have a nice home of our own and have enough money to live well. But at the end of the day you'll send most of your life working so it's more important to me to enjoy my work.
