So, my boss asked me if I would help the El Paso zoo raise money by jumping off the roof of the Mills Building Downtown. Sure, why not?

And it was incredible!

"Over The Edge", for a donation, allows everyday folks to do something that people, (other than SWAT teams, firemen and window washers) rarely get to do; rappel off huge buildings. The Over The Edge folks explained all the gear to me before we headed up.

Once on the roof, a test line was set up where they actually hooked us up. This part's to get a hands - on exercise and, more importantly, to show you how the brakes work! Then, over the edge we went.
