    That's a BIG gator.

    What's with all the chains and planks in the other pic? Kinda takes the fun out of death defying, no?

    HA!! I was going to say they don't have enough!!
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    You should have a choice, you can use either the planks or the chains.

    I'm getting sick just looking at the photos... I discovered a long time ago that I am not afraid of heights, I am afraid of edges... I can be 200 stories up, as long as I don't have to look down over the edge.

    If you are counting on me to walk those planks to bring you snakebite anti-venom, I'll give my sincere apologies to your next of kin at your funeral...

    I am speechless with the Caminito del Rey. There is no way no how I'd do that walk.


    PS: the gator shots were taken next to our range..... Just kidding!
    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Made me dizzy, thanks. I've seen the Caminito del Rey before it's hard to even look at, not that I'm afraid of heights or anything.

    I'd totally walk along side that mountain (as long as I had something tying me to it of course :D ..)

    With some of your previously posted photos, I'd believe it!

    I am quite familiar with the conditions shown in the last pic, however my experience with that kind of sea state was aboard a US Navy Destroyer, out searching for the USS Scorpion in 1968. We had seas breaking over the bridge.

    I was on the QE2 cruise ship once around hurricane season.
    We had a terrible storm with 40ft waves. My cabin was in
    the middle of the ship thank goodness. I just remember
    rolling back and forth all night...
