High wire adventure

I went to the Trainer Congress in Fulda last Saturday and was charged up by the motivating presentations and the very interesting people there. The highlight was when 12 of us went to the nearby "Hochseilgarten" after lunch. By the time we had rearranged ourselves in order of height standing in a line on a big log, we already felt closer and proceded to escape from a "melting iceflo" carrying a beaker of "nitro glycerine". The highlight was when we had to ascend 7 meters up in the trees in pairs and traverse a thin suspended beam with nothing to hold onto except our partner who was facing us on a parallel beam. It was an amazing experience of putting your trust (and your life if it wasn't for the safety harnesses) in someone else's hands.
