Yes I have several ladders in my garage, and I also have one of those fold down ones (fixed) built in, that leads to the roof however I am loathe to climb a ladder unless it was a real emergency and cannot think of one that would actually make me go up a ladder more than about 2 rungs.
I do have several step stools but can still only go up about two!
Yes. We have a couple of ladders down in the shed. I would probably be fine to use it, as long as it isn't too high up, and the ground is sturdy underneath. Any jobs that require a ladder are usually done by my husband, so I don't think I would ever need to use one.
We have a ladder leaning up against a hard to get to tree which is on a steep slope in the garden! It's been there for years! We have another 1 lying on it's side on the verandah, where it's been for years. Could I climb 1? I'm lot older than Jonaja, so the answer for me, is also a big NO. Not even if my life depended on it! So it's DITTO for me as well!
Yes, I have several. One time I used my large one to get on my roof so I could check the solar hot water thermostat, when I went to get down, found I couldn't reach the top rung. The ladder easily reached the facia and was firm, but I had nothing to hold onto to get down! Ladders need to go much higher than the roof so there is something to hold onto while you step onto it to get down. Mine was easy to get up but I couldn't get down :(
But........ I had my ph in my pocket so rang a neighbour who had the RIGHT size ladder. He came with his ladder and I got down, no problems. He just had a silly grin on his face and never asked any questions. Diplomatic man. ;-/
