Above It All

When I found Grandpa's stilts as an early teen, those wimpy stilts where the steps were only a foot off the ground wasn't good enough for me. Soon I had built a set of stilts where those steps may have been three feet off the ground. The photo was taken when I was 19 or 20 to prove I could still walk and balance (there's that word again) my self atop a couple of sticks.

Much higher than that and acrophobia would kick in.


  1. My grandfather made me stilits like that when I was a kid. They were so much fun. My sisters never could learn how to walk with them! I could almost run with them. That sure brings back a lot of great memories.

  2. My dad made me some stilts that looked just about like yours. I'd forgotten about them until I saw your photo!
