As was the case when I did the Edge Walk in August, I came away from my most recent experience1 feeling exhilarated and more than eager to take on my next adrenalin seeking adventure2.
I also came away from the adventure with a pretty wicked-awesome video. And because the technology exists, I have performed a little You-Tubery for your viewing pleasure. That is, dear readers, I have spent countless seconds uploading and embedding the video via the combined magic of computer-geekery and the interwebs such that you might get a small taste of the thrill that is walking the edge of the CN Tower.
As good as the video is (and I take no credit for that whatsoever), it really doesn’t do justice to the sense of wonder3 that overtook me as I stood with my toes hanging over the edge while the wind whipped around me.
Truly, this is something that you really need to try if you have the chance. And if you are going to do it, let me know. I’m sure I could be convinced to take a third trek onto the edge.
