    Terrifying

    I rappelled of a castle tower during a class trip to Italy last year. We were all required to do so, otherwise no one could have gotten me near that tower. We started off taking in the adjacent medieval torture museum, and then proceeded to be thrown out of a window. I was so...

    I had the chance to go rappelling with my daughter's troop last year.  Normally I am absolutely terrified of heights.  Actually, it's not the fear of the height that gets me, it's the idea of falling...heights are fine for me as long as I'm on a stable surface. ...
