We'll go to a semi-remote location, and hike to an abandoned railroad bridge, high up above the river far down below, and explore the element of exposure overcoming any fears of height. We'll also have a snack, and plenty to drink, to stay energized and hydrated.
As an Eagle Scout, and Order of the Arrow inductee in my youth, I became an adult who finished college with a degree in Outdoor Recreation Management & Leadership. Since then, I have worked as a high school teacher in New York City, as a ski instructor in Colorado, as a whitewater river rafting guide in West Virginia, as a climbing clinic instructor in Utah, gear tester and reviewer in Seattle, and more elsewhere. Also, as a scholar in behavioral science and research methodology, I study and share techniques in overcoming fears and phobias. We can easily transfer the power and positive effect that comes from overcoming a fear of heights, to overcoming other phobias, such as public speaking, or quitting a job, using targeted neurolinguistic programming. Olympic coaches do something similar to prompt athletes in excelling to higher levels.
A selection of sports drinks, electrolytes, and water. Also, a thermos of tea for colder months.
If you want, I can provide climbing harnesses to keep you tethered to me on the open exposed bridge. It's safe, you'll see.
We will travel two hours from Seattle, to an abandoned railroad bridge in the forest, off of a dirt road.
During colder months, a warm jacket, a beanie/toque hat, and enough layers to keep you warm outside for a few hours.
Ask me any questions. Want to go on a different date than appears posted? Inquire.
