    My knees gave out and I'm sitting in my chair! I could not finish it, either. I'm going to have nightmares tonight.

    Wow, I have never considered myself to be afraid of heights - had one job where I had to hang off the roof of the lab to take photos, but that is beyond crazy :shock: Awesome view from the top though ;-)

    My heart is pounding. When I was a kid my dad worked as a television engineer. He talked about climbing towers like this. He had a hard time going into caves but he could climb towers. Thanks for sharing.

    I am so petrified of heights but I did manage to watch this video. I am all sweaty, dizzy and nauseaous but made it to the top. I cannot look down from a 2 story window without feeling the affects. LOL I hope these folks are paid very well.
