    I don't mind confined spaces. I do not like bein off the ground. Especially in the pos lift we have at the track.

    I was about 50-60 feet up, in an itty bitty space. I panicked a bit on the way up, but once I sat down, and caught my breath, I was fine. Never had problems with small spaces or heights, but the respirator and earplugs got to me. :(

    It's mind over matter, dude!

    If you stay focused on what you're doing it reduces the scare factor.

    Try diving for lobster at night off the coast :eek1: !

    Did a night dive in florida many years ago in almost zero viz. Got down to about 10 feet and couldn't see me hands without a flashlight. Grabbed my dive partner and went back up, all done that night:crazy:

    Yep, scary indeed.

    Vertigo can creep up real quick down there at night!

    Manholes are the worst. That smell is something else. Heights I don't mind, unless it was on my old ladder. We named her slingshot for a reason. :haha:
