Holy cow.

My dad told me tonight that he and my uncle are going to the Mackinac Bridge tomorrow, and they'll get to go up to the top of one of the towers.

I'm really glad they get the chance to go–unique opportunity!–but damn.

    AWESOME! I hope they take oodles and oodles of photos!
    The one time I watched Dirty Jobs, the star of the show was walking along the supports to one of towers. He had all the safety stuff on but was still quite rattled. Then when they got to the top, he asked the bridge worker how they were going to get down.
    "Oh, we'll just take the elevator."
    It was pretty darn funny, I thought.

  7. Yes, Dad said they're taking the elevator up–he said the elevator would be 28 inches square, if I heard him right–I think that's about the size of the girls' litterbox, though. Then there's a ladder to get up to the tippy top. It didn't sound like they'd be walking the cables, thank heavens!

    I knew had that wrong – walking the cables.The towers are the supports. Duh! The Mighty Mac is magnificent, indeed. Would love to go to the top myself someday!
    I hope they aren't scared of heights OR claustrophobic!
