We’re certainly not suggesting you ever try this! However, the idea of sitting perched atop a flagpole did catch the public’s attention around a century ago. A former sailor turned stuntman, Alvin ‘Shipwreck’ Kelly, had much to do with this, quite probably for promotional purposes, although it’s also claimed that a friend challenged him to do it.
In 1924, he headed up the pole and stayed there for over thirteen hours. This record was later extended by himself and others, and eventually reached over 50 days! So, extreme self-isolation!
Residential flagpoles here in Denver will hopefully remain free of humans but is a great way to show your pride in our nation, your state – or even a specific cause. Find out more by talking to us on 303-770-3524 now.
