Challenge 11 - High Wire Course
Visited Aerial Extreme in Bedale with my sister Em and son Joe on Saturday, to have my first ever go on a High Wire course. Whilst Joe and Em had both done this kind of thing before, it was my first time.
|The FIRST High Wire on the course.|
This took a while as once there, I stood on the the platform, stared at the two slender metal wires stretched between the trees, looked at the rope above it and wondered what on earth I had signed up for.
Joe went first, and after watching my ten year old son complete the crossing, there was no welching. I looked ahead not down, stepped carefully onto the wire and inched my way slowly across. Very slowly.
The challenge is to do 20 new things by the end of August 2013; whilst each activity is something I couldn't have done before my transplant, some of them are more of a challenge than others. 1,2, 6, 8 and 11 have been the toughies so far...
