Hello! I am back from my various projects. Thank you for your patience while I’ve been gone. In the next few weeks, I’ll share some of my activities and wandings with all of you. First up, is Over the Edge. This was a fundraiser for the United Way of Greater Nashua. People raise money for the privilege or rappelling down a twenty-story building in Manchester, NH. And yes, that is me in these images.
I didn’t plan to rappel that day. My role was as a volunteer. This is one of their larger fund raising events. We have a great local United Way, so I told them I’d volunteer for the whole day. Another man and I managed their GoPro cameras for the day. We handed them out, taught people how to use them, and later downloaded the videos.
At the end of the day, there were two open slots which they offered to my co-volunteer and I. We were very fortunate. A benefit of doing this last minute was that I didn’t have time to overthink it. As soon as we said, “yes”, we were told to go get harnesses and gear. It was scary but all day we’d watched the team that supervises the rappelling. They were pros. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work. If you’d like to see the footage from my camera, please click the link https://youtu.be/QSTFgFkdCuY
