"Highlining has a ton of metaphors for life actually. A big one is it's a very clear reaction to what you're movements, or something you're doing. It's very clear that what you're doing is affecting your surroundings. That directly translates into life - What you do affects where you are and what is about you. What you're doing is affecting where you're at. So be aware of yourself. Highlining teaches you that, it teaches you how to be aware."
- Jerry Miszewski
On October 6th 2013, after one week of attempts, Jerry Miszewski walked a 704 ft long highline. No one had even walked a 500ft or 600 ft highline at the time.
If you like hearing Jerry talk about life and slacklining as much as I do, this another video you might be interested in: vimeo.com/31639331

The best way to start highlining is to meet up with other highliners and learn first hand. Check out the slackliner database to find keen slackliners in your area: balancecommunity.com/Slackliner-Database
