    If you guys want to keep it real and be 'hardened travellers' then go ahead. I'll wait by the pool with my book and large G&T OK?

    Just looking at the videos made me dizzy. No thanks. I like hiking, but I like not splattering into a thousand little pieces at the bottom of that canyon better.

    i saw this a while ago and it scared me, and i'm not even scared of heights.
    i also saw another video of some dudes hiking/running around some old quarry in spain that was similarly freaky.

    The first video is making me dizzy. I don't know what's up or down anymore.




    But I'd do it. You get a safety harness that you can clip onto that very sturdy looking rusty chain!

    You'd have to pay me to do that.

    But money is no good if you've converted yourself into tomato sauce at the base of the canyon.

    Turning one's self into Wyle E. Coyote isn't my idea of a saucy Saturday afternoon, and I love hiking. This sets my vertigo on fire.

    I love hiking, but screw that. I like hiking because I'm on fairly solid ground and a lot of it, if I wanted to do something like that I'd be a rock climber.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    Holy crap, I would be pissing myself and crying like a baby if I had to do that.

    No thank you.
