Re: Stepped into the Void Today!

Good for you, Paul. I'd have to really think about that before doing it!

Lisa and I were there many years ago and enjoyed the view from the observation deck, thank you very much.

That box looks like it would create some serious pucker effect! Lots of fun though.

Re: Stepped into the Void Today!

On the way home after riding over 30 passes in the Italian, Austrian, Swiss & French Alps. It was a fantastic adventure with new friends, my main squeeze and a new (to me) Air Pro 2 helmet cam. Great footage of Stelvio Pass (up & down) and many others. You can feel the effect of the altitude even when dismounting at 9-10K feet.

Great cuisine and panoramic views that could often capture views of the Alps of at least two countries.
