I’m terrified of heights…really terrified…so when I was invited to do a ropes course I thought it would be a good way to work on that fear…here’s my bravest moment…
Thanks to My Life in Blog Years , You Did What with Your Wiener and Dachshund Nola for hosting the Black and White Sunday blog hop.
Here’s today’s 30/30 Challenge ticker:
Hi! I'm Gizmo...a handsome terrier-about-town with a distinct point of view. I will write about whatever interesting things come across my desk, appear on my twitter feed @GizmoGeodog, or meet me out on the geotrails.
I love to geocache cause it takes me to all the wild places & I can get back to being a real dog.
I care about all my brofurs & sisfurs who haven't found their own forever homes yet, & raise funds to help them whenever I can.
My girl brought me home from the shelter & together we explore our world. I do my best to make her smile, & she does her best for me. We are a team.

Wow! I am very impressed (and not thrilled with heights myself).
I have never had that much adrenaline…It was pretty amazing
Congrats on facing your fear.
Thank you! I’d actually like to do it again now
oh that looks scary to me…. only this rope between the feet and the “nowhere” … wow, that’s really courageous ;o)
The folks running the course were very supportive and made it as comfortable as possible
Wow you are brave. Have a super Black N White Sunday.
Best wishes Molly
Brave or crazy..who can tell LOL
better you than me! You’d never find me up there! 🙂
It was an amazing experience
Oh Wow! I wouldn’t do that for love or money! You are soooooooooooo brave!!! I’m glad you lived to tell about it! You Rock!
Truth is it was very empowering…I still don’t like heights, but I know i can handle them if I have to
Very scary looking. I bet it was fun though.
It was fun…it gave you one of those “highs” that lasts all day
Very cool! Like you, I am also terrified of heights. One of my biggest accomplishments as such was to go rappelling. It was awesome!
Congratulations on tackling your fear.
That’s another adventure I’ve thought about…if the opportunity presents itself I’d probably try that one too
Mowzers, our mommy was invited to do one of those – she was *ahem* sorry to say she was busy that day…(HA)
Next time – GO! you won’t regret it I promise
Way to go doing a ropes course if you’re afraid of heights! Those things are scary enough if you aren’t particularly afraid of heights.
It was so amazing I’ve been considering doing another one 🙂
Now that really IS brave – don’t think you’d catch me up there – hold tight!! 🙂
Your pal Snoopy 🙂
Oh believe I did hold on tight…but they strap you in really well so, though it doesn’t look it, it’s pretty safe
Gizmo, your “girl” is brave and fearless. Next time she should take you with her. Then you can experience one more thing together. WOW.
Hmmm, maybe Gizmo in a doggie backpack next time 🙂
That looks pretty scary. How high up were you?
To be honest I’m not really sure, but best guess is about 80′ up on that obstacle and that was the highest one of the course
Dang! And you should be proud of that! I’m not big fond of heights myself but definitely not on a rope!! You are a very brave woman!
The opportunity was unexpected, and once presented I just went for it…I knew that if I thought about it for long I’d chicken out 😉
THIS IS AWESOME!!! I love ropes courses 🙂
I’ve been looking for a chance to try another one..It’s like nothing else
To me…that is just TERRIFYING!!! Yikes! But YAY You for conquering what you started out to do!!
Terrifying, exciting, invigorating and empowering…if you ever get a chance you should do it
I should follow your step! because I am also afraid of height
If there’s a well-run ropes course near you *’d recommend it…I don’t love heights now but i do have a lot more confidence
You are totally mad, I would die up there. I take my hat off to you..Well done 🙂 You deserve a big hug for that 🙂 xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
You are totally mad, I would die up there. I take my hat off to you, well done 🙂 xx00xx

Looks like fun!!!!!!! Except I would be a basket case if I looked down. I love to climb UP, I have trouble getting down though.
Down was easy…you just let go fell back into your harness…it was a controlled fall with two guides making sure you didn’t come down too quickly
We tried to leave comments yesterday, but wordpress was playing up :(. You are barking mad, I would die up there..lol I take my hat off to you for your bravery 🙂 xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
“Barking mac” BOL! I like that…It was totally scary but incredibly exhilerating
Wow, that’s high, Gizmo, but you did it. Good for you 🙂
It was scary as heck, but I felt great
