14,115 = Pikes Peak.

Okay, okay...now I am jealous. I have always wanted a car with a sticker on it that says, "This car has climbed Pike's Peak."

Musta been great.

Were you there for the races?

I've been to the top of Pike's peak a couple of times. I didn't drive myself, though.

I think the highest I have driven is about 10,000 feet.

Great height!

About 11k feet. I was driving to Denver and the tunnel was closed. They turned us around.
If you get to thinking you’re a person of some influence, try ordering somebody else’s dog around.

I mean how high above sea-level with your feet still on the ground.

The highest I've ever been is in the Bavarian Alps...way back in the mid 1950's. I was in Berchtesgaden... on top of a mountain, the name of which I cannot recall right now. I know that I was able to view one of the homes Hitler used...not the Eagle's Nest (which apparently was destroyed) but the other one.

So...how about you?

I couldn't tell you, but on mountain tops, nothing huge. I hate heights though. Been to the top of the Empire State Building, but that was when I was  a kid.

At work.

Stood atop Ayer's rock (Ularu to the Native owners) back last century before we realized it was kind of a d!ck thing to be doing.

Whole lot of nuthin' in any direction from there.

You can 'Feel' the immensity of empty space around you. Puts you in a mind of knowing the fragility of being 'Human' when you're a speck atop the bones of the world.

Cheers.

Wow...one of the most interesting things on the planet.

I doubt you'd be able to get to the top of it now. I understand that the indigenous people have shown lots of clout in stopping the visits.

Heights can bother me also. I've been high in several NYC skyscrapers....and always was happy when back on Earth.

Uhm well, no.

We kind of went "Y'know. We don't clamber to the top of Mosques and if nature calls, take a dump on 'em."

Same for crosses, churches or other temples.

We've always kind of acknowledged the arriving Brits as being d!cks. The whole ANZAC thing wasn't a great event, really. Just took us that little bit longer to realize 'Hey. We're still doing the d!ckish Brit things' in regards to the locals.

But anywho.

Cheers.

I passed in the valley in Queensland past Mt Coonowrin. I was in the valley looking up, it was fucking massive. It made me dizzy looking up at it.

This video doesn't do it justice.
