On a line that long, I'd say the force is going to be considerable. What are the consequences if it DOES break? You fall, hurt yourself, and break some shiny car? Sounds like a lot to wager. ;)

Which leads me to: Do you have permission? :lol:

yeah,,,, those damn poles... if something were to fail, i think it would be the bolt breaking away from the pole...




and i dont like that there is only one clamp that holds that actual wire..

gymslackerclimber,

I'd encourage you to think this one through. Think of how differently these two connected wires are going to behave given one will be directly loaded and the other loaded with a peculiar periodicity depending on your proximity to a sign. As you approach one of those signs and it starts to transfer your load to the lower cable the net effect will be to throw the top wire out laterally to one side or the other. Your best hope would be that the entire top wire and all the signs would lay to one side for the duration. of the walk. But it would likely be a function of the tensioning as to how much it would want to "spring" back up behind you and the feel would be entirely inconsistent as you moved towards, across, and away from each sign. Another worst case scenario is that out in the middle they would invert as in the top [loaded] cable would become the bottom cable and the old bottom cable would then lever your ankles off the whole rig. As for the clamping, sure it will hold if you hang on an end but not very likely once you're out in the middle - add clamps if you are crazy enough to go through with this. It looks like the only really plausible way to do it would be with a classic weighted drooping pole and even then it would likely suck.

Yeah, just a guess but that line looks something like 120 feet long. The force on those anchors will be serious, especially in a fall. I don't know a whole lot about welding, so I can't really judge the strength of those anchors though. I probably wouldn't do it. :?

so the proper term for this spinoff of slacklining would be... static-lining?

Actually I think this would be a lesser quality slackwire, which has been around much longer. Slacklining is the spinoff. :wink:

Yep, this stuff has been around since man has had rope and any leisure time at all. Wire in every conceivable form has undoubtable been done ad nausem since its availability. My fave being the bouncy Russions with their jumps and flips...

thanks guys,, for discuarging me..
healyj, i never considered any 'twisting action' that might happen after the top lione becomes tensioned,,,, the fact that those metal pannels are attached to the bottom wire as well as the top,,,, their would have to be some type of twist factor.....

so bottom line ,,, i really dont want to break anything, including myself,,, and......

:tinfoilhat:


well its scary....




another line for a nother day...

My pleasure, this will be my thirtieth year of walking and trust me - you don't even want to know all the painful and stupid human tricks I've survived along the way...

Can someone explain the difference between static and dynamic balance to me. I understand the definitions of the words but not exactlly the context.

static balance is blaance on any sort of solid object? While dynamic is on a object that reacts to your input?

Yeah pretty much. A static object does not move, so static balance would be walking a balance beam, or a railing, or a tight wire. In dynamic balance, what you're walking on is moving, like slack rope, a slackline, a chain, and such.

i cant argue with that..


chains are always fun ... trying to capture a little surfing (with the old self timer) night-vision style
http://i5.photobucket.com/...acker/nightchain.jpg
every night the tension in this is different, tonight it was pretty darn loose.. and there used to be only one section of pbc pipe ,, i guess they decided it wasnt hard enough so they added a few more sections ...

the send is always an accomplishment. :twisted:

Bump means bumping this topic back up to the top of the list in the forums. And yes, those are some sort of modernized mukluk or similar leather boot of some sort. ;)

Since I'm still up, I'll tell you that those would be Uggs rather than mukluks, and "bump" means to send a post back to the front page after it has faded into the past due to lack of activity.
