    Wouldn't it be cool to do a long road trip all over the US and Canada and check in on ones' HF buddies? To see them in person, pet the REAL Lacey or Ben or Lass or Riley or . . . . And blog about it, too.

    Heights do not bother me much...but low altitude valleys do. :)

    Heights terrify me but for some reason I only like to ride really tall horses, especially for jumping. Weird! :)

    That... is terrifying. I would die of fright. It's not so much the drop but.. the LACK of footing!!!!!!!!!! I NEED WIDTH (don't take that out of context please.)

    It won't let me watch.. silly youtube.

    EDIT: I watched it.. omg NZ is way worse but still quite hairy looking regardless! Would not want to run off that road....!

    The irony of it all is I do have a problem with heights, yet I have a tall horse?! What is this!? Lol, bareback riding is like climbing my very own mountain ;P

    You guys/gals want to see something crazy?


    It's called Russian Skywalking... they find the tallest objects to climb and do tricks on, with no harness, no safety net. My palms sweat every time I see these videos. Pure insanity!

    See I must be a weird one lol I love the heights but can't stand the feeling of being trapped and not being able to move.

    Rock climbing is great for the heights but get me to a point where I can't go any further or I think I can't go any further and I have a melt down. I can't climb more then 30 ft because I don't want to risk panicing at a height any higher.

    So heights no problem lol the feeling of trapped gets me everytime :(

    I don't mind heights to much, as long as I feel secure. That first drop off was a bit hairy because the road actually overhung the cliff.
    But, I live in a land of mountains, so endless flat land makes me unnerved, disoriented and depressed.
