Nick on the wire


Is anyone else currently watching Nick tightrope walk the falls?

I can't believe he's actually having a conversation with the media as he's walking. He sounds like he sitting in a chair watching

Haha was thinking the same thing. I can't talk on my Bluetooth with the a/c in my truck blowing on me let alone what he's doing....

This is a pic of the CN tour I took from inside the Skydome (Rogers Centre)

If you look really hard on the right side of the viewing platform/restaurant on the tower, you can see tiny little orange specks. These are people walking the sky walk. They harness you in, with your feet on the very edge of the platform, you lean out and over the edge.
Who's game?

Its not for me either, but I know plenty of people who claim they're going to do it. I can barely stand driving over the Burlington skyway bridge haha.

I won't be surprised to see it on the amazing race

Right now, sitting here safely in my chair, I think it would be a blast to try that!

In reality, I doubt I'd have the nerve to do it.

I do love driving on mountain roads though, where you can see way down to the valley below. It's probably not the same thing.

You're giving me more credit than I deserve.

I think I wrote in one of the posts here about being afraid of walking up a set of stairs that didn't have risers. I could see all the way down to the basement from the stairs leading to the second floor of the house. It was scary.

I'm not as brave as my imagination and sense of adventure would like me to be.

Has anyone heard from Rossi?
