Now who can demonstrate “One Step At A Time” better than the man who makes walking a high wire easy – Nik Wallenda. This evening he walked over the grand opening of Sarasota Ford and then cut a ribbon opening the dealership. Now compared to walking over Niagara Falls and the Grand Canyon and even between buildings in Chicago, this was a “cake walk”, but even so, when the wire moved, he stopped and waited until it settled. He was still quite a ways up over the dealership. I believe they said he was 100 feet up and the wire was 500 ft across – stretched between two large cranes. And if it was more than 2 feet above the ground, you wouldn’t find me up there. (maybe when I was younger – but not now).
Notice he has 4 GO Pro camera on his pole. I never saw that before, but then again, I never looked closely at his pole. What I do not have in these photos is a shot of the drone that flew above him during the walk.
