Re: [RC] Tevis - OT riders - jdhardin77

One day I hope to do Tevis! It may be 20 years from now, but you might see me 
crawling across no hands bridge.  It is THE one thing I really want to do 
before I die. I'm extremely afraid of heights, but I will overcome it (if I 
have to crawl)! LOL!

I have crossed no hands (before the rails were put in), but I did it

time I crossed it reciting a poem Becky Hart wrote for me.

A dear friend of mine who shall remain nameless crawled across No 
Hands (before the rails were in) on hands and knees.  I'm not afraid 
of heights and yet I had to look straight ahead and focus on the 
other side - if I looked down like Maryben did, I could see the river 
waaaaay down there with peripheral vision and that was a very bad 
feeling.  The trick is to go over the bridge before the sky starts 
getting light so you can't see how far down it is.  Of course, at the 
rate I've ridden Tevis, I never get to that point while its still very dark.

NIce poem Becky wrote for you.  I couldn't have recited a poem, as I 
was having enough to do remembering to breathe.
