Quotes

#Quote
1We take pride in being a zero-impact operation. We don't drill into any rock or pull up any grass. We'll use cranes, and we're trying to arrange the rigging so no cable will even touch water when we set up. The 'Maid of the Mist', I would hope, would continue to run. You'll never know we were there.
2(on attempting to cross Niagara Falls on a high-wire) My idea scenario would be a foggy day. I disappear into the mist, then appear on the other side. How cool would that be? Worst case scenario: I sit down on the wire , the helicopter swoops in, I hook on and they get me out of there. I look goofy but nobody gets hurt.
3Rule of thumb to even be on the wire: you have to be able to do ten chin-ups and pull your body over the wire ten times.
4I tell mom to 'watch it' in every show. When I look like I'm off-balance? Moving my bar like crazy? All to build drama. People understand that we're entertainers. That's where our skills come in, and believe it or not, it's the hard part of what we do.
