(AZ Family)   The Navajo Nation gives Nik Wallenda permission to walk across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope. It will be very similar to his Niagara Falls stunt, except the Navajos won't require him to wear a safety harness   (azfamily.com) divider line 15

That's a bit surprising since the Navajos closed Ship Rock to climbers after an accident (non-fatal), due to religious proscriptions against having anyone die there.  Probably this area is less sacrosanct.

vudukungfu: robohobo: Injuns own the Grand Canyon?

There's no oil in it.


ding ding ding...we have a winner.

Technically, he won't be walking across the Grand Canyon - he'll be walking across Marble canyon, which is inside Grand Canyon National Park, which is inside Navajo land - get it?

I met Carla Wallenda at a second rate fair under a viaduct. She was pretty old at the time, but still giving it the old college try. I got her autograph....who wouldn't?

robohobo: Would you prefer "gravity be with me" or "balance be praised"?


How about "I would like to thank the engineers who designed this tightrope".

robohobo: vaakenjab: Sounds exciting.... as long as they don't have a live microphone on him so we can be spared him incessantly muttering: "praise Jesus".

Would you prefer "gravity be with me" or "balance be praised"?


Praise Newton.

As much as anyone can own a hole in the ground, yes.

GBB: 1500ft down?  Wear a conceilable parachute, walk halfway across, lose balance, fall, wait a few terrifying seconds, pull the cord.  Difficulty: don't tell anyone you have that chute on.


Like this?

Outlaw2097: theres that...and the lack of a blue wet thing underneath.


In fairness, when the blue wet thing is that far underneath, it really might as well be a slab of zillion-year-old rock.

In this day and age of high tech suspense and thrills, where even someone with no athletic ability can rent 30 minutes in a U-Fly skydiving windtunnel for a few bucks, it's amazing that people are still making money with these incredibly old-timey circus stunts.

More power to him, I suppose.
