  1. Making the news today....

    Fixed that for you.
  2. What skillset makes for a good Groundie?

    Agree with all of this, but if you are only working a week or two in front it can be difficult to get everyone singing off the same hymn sheet however big the pool is.
  3. Making the news today....

    It seem the Conservatives are back peddling over the windrush massive. Perhaps it's because the media brought it to light, or maybe the media were trying to embarrass them?
  4. Riding The Crane Hook

    I asked this same question when I needed to get on a factory roof a couple of years ago. The General consensus was it's down to the Crane company/operator. Don't know if things have changed mind.

    Have a look here Mr Idiot. https://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/portal/ You get five free posts then it costs £15/year to join but you do get discounts from most of the companies that advertise on there. Don't get any ideas @Steve Bullman The forum is also treated as a 'club' so you get a discount at any club site should you want to use sites.
  6. Self employed climber wanted for regular work

    Where is the local area David?
  7. Which Saw bench

    You've either taken a bump to the head or you know the boss will never read this.

    How are you thinking of getting/ storing power? Being off grid, (assuming you will be) you are going to need to charge batteries, I guess you could run a genny in the woods but it won't go down well in a residential area.

    If it is only for odd nights something like this maybe. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VOLKSWAGEN-T5-102BHP-REG-2008-Low-Mileage-3-YEAR-WARRANTY/142760919881?hash=item213d36c349:g:ntQAAOSw3gJZFDJR If it's more long stays I wouldn't entertain it.
  10. Happy campers

    Do you mean a coach built motorhome or a panel van conversion? I've had both, just recently got another Mo/Ho. It's a German A class. Whats the budget?
  11. A change of industry.

    Can I ask how many bricks you are getting down a day on good straight runs?
  12. A change of industry.

    I'd stick to brick laying until you know the job inside out, apart from when recession strikes you will always have work, even then a good brickie will come off site work and drop on domestic work. It's cheaper to make a house bigger than buying a bigger property. You could always, (if you can get a start) fill in rainy days with some tree work. Most small companies don't need someone five days a week. Having more than one string to your bow pretty much guarantees you will not be short of work. Just my take on the situation.
  13. Making the news today....

    You do realise this post will make you a raving leftie trying to shut down debate, don't you?
  14. Making the news today....

    ...... And an ounce of ganja.
