    You're with a good bud. He says, hey, walk up there with me. I gotta show you something tooo cool.

    Ya get there, and everybody jumps but you and your good(?) bud. He says, I'll follow you.

    Pass, with a capital P. :eek:

    I have no fear of heights, but an immense fear of falling. Nope I pass

    Oh I think the fall would be ok. It's the stopping that scares me. I'll pass Jack.

    Looks like something I'd have liked, years ago. After all, I was willing to leave a perfectly good airplane a few times. :D

    The area reminds me of climbing around in the canyons of Northern Arizona and Southern Utah.

    awwww seriously ?

    theres another over hang outside of Perth that i took a visiting Marine one time and he had a ball , did not even complain about the climb back up ...

    not as big a swing as this one but still 120-140 foot maybe of rope swinging

    admittedly i'm getting a bit old for this myself , but dont you folks do crazy stuff like this when your young ?

    i loved parachuting, still do ( when i can afford too) Surfing big waves , diving, diving off stuff, riding motor cycles ,

    heck i'm building a ultralight ( yes i know i crashed the first one .. the wind over turned me AFTER i landed and stopped )

    but lifes meant for fun

    so what do you folks do that you consider crazy fun if this is too much .. ??

    you know i have had a lot of "hey watch this" moments in my life but there's no way in h*ll i jump off that rock. way too many bad things can happen there. and no i wouldn't jump out of a perfectly good airplane either.

    It looks like a blast, but it would take forever for me to get back up to the top. I like skydiving, dirt bike and atv riding, riding motorcycles too fast (in my younger days) I still go rock diving when in Hawaii or Nevada.

    about 15 years ago I decided I need to settle down. before that I drove cars beyond 150mph, jumped cars like the Dukes of Hazard, rode dirt bikes and ATVs, ice fishing and dropped a car through, etc. etc. it's a wonder I am still alive. now I get to stand back and watch my boys do it all. parental supervision of course ;)
