Once again the wonderful Michele Rainbow Dave Frost amazes me with her "out of the box" thinking, I have rock wall climbed before....but never ever thought of doing it on stilts, truly magnificent is this feat...or shall I say, her feet! I tip my hat to her in respect for being the beautiful woman she is, and for doing amazing things like this over and over, again and again.
During my travels down to San Fransisco my friend asked me if I ever thought of crossing the Golden Gate Bridge on my bio mechanical stilts, I asked how long it was and realized that it will be no problem. Little did I know what was going to happen on 9/11/2009 and how it would change my way of viewing what I do. I did some research and discovered that back in May 27th 1937 when they opened the bridge to the public, a person named Florentine Calegari crossed this bridge on stilts, both ways...so I was not able to discover if they were still alive, but did make a shirt with their name on it in honor of such an accomplishment.
This video will show what happened when I decided to do the same thing but with my bio-mechanical stilts instead.
