A lot can be learned from this little sign.

Getting a little off balanced working on a side crow pose while on the 30ft high line.
There were lines rigged ranging in size from 30ft all the way up into the 2 and 3 hundreds.
The 280 footer at the bottom of the slack arena. This bad boy claimed to injuries, a broken hip of one and a broken foot of another friend. This photo is not from the most previous Highline festival because they didn't rig it this time.

Chopped in half and has a "sicktail" from a old zip zinger deck. Slapped together whatever parts I had to make it a complete. It actually doesn't ride too bad, though the small hard wheels are a bit sketchy when its wet out. I essentially took two broken board (the vannie and the zip zinger) and made one usable one (mainly because I wanted something small to throw around). And it lasted me just long enough.
It snapped a few weeks after I built it when I tried taking it off a 5 stair and landed in the tail. Oh well!

My kombucha momma and it's 1/2 baby. Makes a parent proud.
I need to get back to my kombucha brewing. I got into it in September and have only made a handful of batches. Often, they come out sweet, which makes it nice for those who don't like the traditional taste of a stronger brew. I do think, however, that I'm going to start letting them sit a week or so longer and see what the taste ends up like. I usually flavor with ginger, pomegranate (when available), or lime/ other citrus.
I highly recommend brewing some of your own, its delicious! See if you have a friend that brews and can spare an extra SCOBY. If you can't find out any there then check around your local food co-op and ask around.

Had a great slackline session on saturday. Trick lines in the morning, long lines in the afternoon. This guy, Jerry Miszewski, helped me out a lot with getting all my gear together (pictures to come). He is amazing when it comes to rigging lines and is crazy good on long lines (he's working towards walking a 500 meter one). Check out his site if you need any slack goods!
