"Daring Dirtbags Who Make Salt Lake City Holiday Lights Sparkle" https://www.outsideonline.com/culture/essays-culture/christmas-lights-salt-lake-city/ "In Utah, Christmas-tree lights are a very big deal. Meet the itinerant crew of climbers, river guides, ski bums, trekkers, and thru-hikers who work like super-elves to get ready for the year’s most beautiful holiday." "As a veteran installer, Travis “T-Pow” Powell will make at least $55,000 in the ten weeks between October 1 and December 15, then spend the rest of his year on climbing and skiing expeditions in Alaska."

I love Christmas lights. Never made $55K or any $K whatever, but our town looked nice when we switched them on, and that's what mattered. Manlifts are aid but golf carts are not. Peace and Happy New Year from Doolittle Park.

If anyone has any recommendations for a crew in Seattle that hangs lights and does a professional level job let me know.

Neat story. Thanks! I know one of the guys from the article. Ryan irvin moved to Lake wenatchee a few years ago and hooked up with our group of splitboarders at stevens pass. Adventurous young guy. He just recently moved to the methow area. Kind of doing the homestead thing. He did mention that he hung lights for a living.
