    I do not blame you one bit. I avoid climbing on ladders (high distances), climbing roofs, and other dangerous stuff. My uncle was hanging Xmas lights and ended paralyzed for 3 months. He still is not right to this day. Not to mention the countless other stories you hear

    I have done some in the past but not anymore, its just too dangerous. Anytime you are near a roof its trouble. I don't mind climbing a ladder when I have to but I try to avoid it if I can.

    I do have a ten foot step ladder I use and thats with someone there to have a hand on it should I have to lean out some.

    Nothing to do with gutters but talking safety I bought a Stihl Kombi KM 130 R with the adjustable hedge trimmer and an extra extension and a Stihl HT 131 Pole Pruner so I can keep two feet on the ground more often.
