    Picture G Shocks at Work: Show em if you got em.

    So what do you do when there is not enough room to
    set up a ladder ? Get on the hooks and climb. I love
    it up there, it's always a little adrenaline rush. Get a
    sweat going. The Mudman is a great work watch for me,
    truly a beater and starting to earn it's scars.

    I would like to take a moment to ask you to
    PLEASE SLOW DOWN when you us out there !!
    Any time you see safety cones, an orange vest
    or a men working sign, please give us a brake !!
    Make it an instinct. If anything else, tap your
    brakes lights a few times to let the people behind
    you know they need to be aware ! Thanks.

    I can't tell you how many times I have had close
    calls on the side of the road. I poke my head up
    out of a manhole my cones all over the road,
    hit by a car going 55+....YIKES !!

    Lets see your watches at work, (desk diving included).

    Unfortunately I have an office job. So my work pics are kinda dull.

    But seeing you up on that pole reminds me of my father.
    He started climbing when he joined the air force. And climbed poles in Korea during the war there.
    When he got back from Korea he got a job with the phone company training others how to climb and working as an installer.

    Unfortunately for him, He never got a G Shock. I can remember him coming home from time to time cursing because he'd either destroyed or lost his watch. He usually went with the standard Timex. (Takes licking but keeps on ticking?) And those poor watches always looked rough.

    I work in the transportation industry as well. But my work is all office these days LOL.

    But yep, its a whole different world when those people in the workzones are friends and "family".

    Be patient with road repairs, signal work and right of way work. Those folks have families and are just doing their jobs. Their lives are worth FAR more than your cell phone conversation and or the few seconds your speeding may save YOU. Think about others when operating your multi-ton killing machines.

    Well, this pic was taken in my office LOL


    The gulfman is sitting around the top to my thermos LOL.

    looks like we're in the same line of work. I can't recall which watch I was wearing at the time, probably my old 6105. I agree with your other statements, SLOW DOWN in construction zones!

    Nice pic !! I would like to get a shot of me climbing but I feel
    kind of weird asking a co-worker to take it.

    I zoomed in on your pic, and I have to say I don't know if
    I am a big fan of your strap. Is that nylon ? They give us
    heavy duty leather belts. (are you flipping the bird? NICE !!)

    Nice watch collection too !!
