Re: Crossing Electric fence safely.

Maybe Richard Dawkins could help you through it? Have you asked him?

That stuff you are covering the line with in your great pic looks like what I need. I'll have to camo paint them tho!
Don't screw with that stuff, I've seen buffalo get knocked down by it and I have a healthy respect for it, played with electric fence all my life but I won't screw with that stuff AT ALL!!!!

that stuff we are using in that pic is rated for up to 36kv so yeah it would work great but yeah its kinda high vis for a reason...lol

if you know anybody that does contract line work they could probably get you a blanket or something.

Re: Crossing Electric fence safely.

Being an ex farm boy, my brothers and I would torture all our city cousins. Running shoes and work boots wouldnt get you that bad, but get someone to take their shoes and socks off and stand in the wet grass, PRICELESS.
I would just take my muffs off for the couple of seconds it takes to cross under the wire, if possible, getting shocked in the balls will more than likely hurt, but you will learn not to do it again, unless your into that kind of stuff.
