    Cliffhanger!!!

    Granted I was with a tour group in Mexico, so I wasn't in any REAL danger, but that was the scariest thing I have ever done. My fiance went first so he could catch me if I fell (yeah right, we'd both be in pieces), and when he got to the bottom, I realized I didn't have anyone...

    Terrifying

    I Did It!

    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. ...
