We welcome to to study point five nickel and that Kenya. Of the hot wire day. It finally we get you -- you've got a lot walls to break through to get to you. Like this great -- -- preacher what to the area congratulations. On this one thank you so much. How long has this been in the works that you first thought I wanna walk across the falls to the actual green light moment. Well you know I actually first thought at Villanova six years old this sound insane but seven generations and are fairly or -- wire walkers are blood. And revisited default -- -- performing up from buffalo and brought me and my sister and count and -- We're able to see default -- -- how -- would be to walk McGwire crossed there. So when you talk about walking a wire -- our listeners in and how how much of the water -- you gonna be walking over. Well I'll be watching over -- -- over known in the history of wire walking ever walked directly over the -- people have walked. Over the gorge actually been well over a mile downstream of the -- even it's. Including London and everybody else that you heard of in the history of of walking in this thirteen or walkers that walked none of them even. Anywhere closer than the US -- have meant -- yeah I'll be the first for swirled that either walking -- about. It's about ninety feet is over the horseshoe falls but I'll be walking over. Is it exciting to you is the thrill the fact that no one's done it before like what makes you want to do it. I think a little bit of it is that the fact that no one's done it for the challenge of getting permission is always exciting to me. The fact that I had a twenty laws twenty countries that -- over a hundred years old that's all part of -- throw I think from a distance -- as much as an entertainer. How do you make your money come from sponsors stay in this event you know I don't know how much money -- actually make. We are winners incredible cost involved but you know this is more about fulfilling -- dream and anything. I think something is -- challenges with sorry I've got respect he sponsors is. I now have sponsor stepping up including my network partner -- seen it. They're gonna make me where not a parachute to safety lines. Isn't it and kind of cumbersome now with what you do. Absolutely it's it's nothing that I'm looking forward to I've never mind. Higher life sort of -- ordered two of 33 I've ever -- safety on the wire little late in the game to be sure of that on that. We're we're trying to work through that now. Okay I said the special on HBO when they show the footage was it your your great grandfather who who was the -- and dad that. Who lost his life like Puerto Rico. My great grandfather was walking between two buildings as it was for Rico he was 73 years old and get a double hernia and injured color balance. Thought that he received and and unfortunately lost his -- because of and you know we've learned a lot of life lessons this. You know the biggest one as -- that there are certain protocol that we need in order to walk -- wire. In a lot of it is just about your physical wellness physical beings in emphasis that went back last year recreated an exact walked right where he felt lost it. Wow that's brave. So what shoes like that you Wear for the wire walk. They're very similar to indeed baucus is they have they suede leather bottom. And other they're fairly thin and that's so that I can -- the wire through issues yet they protect my feet. They're also designed it so when they get wet they actually require rapid and become -- So walking over Niagara Falls without I mean I've done the maid of the mist that's closer -- get into bad about it and so it is it is my -- water mist will that affect the walk. It -- to you know other than visual part of it I think it'll be stunning but the fight vision as well as it doesn't. Affect our vision and we're working on this count as to where my eyes would get so old water that I could see. What's the most distracting thing that can happen. When you're walking as far as what gets in your head like have you been walking and -- -- you think -- I forgot to get milk or something like there's something getting your head. Absolutely that happens on this walk I don't think that's gonna. There's just so many elements that are dealing. I don't walk a wire here at civic center this you know I've been training for the last two weeks of wire. This simulates exactly the gunman walked over the falls out and up guilty inclined -- -- As well as the link you know this is half. Actually more than half -- about 300 feet. More than half I've been walking up and back to try to recreate what on the field the only thing we can't duplicate under sentencing weather conditions. So I try to think about. What that would be like and how you set the sell off so what of the day what's the date of your big walks like what like do you wake up early what do you do. Now you know I try to sleep you know try to relax as much as possible it's really more than anything a mind game to -- to -- them control of that I -- control -- the -- So they're really try to just stay relaxed week and and you know eat normal meals -- try to -- it a couple of hours before -- walks. And get out there do the walk this Italy walk because his fly east this quest for us and it's -- Defense starts around it actually starts live on the -- -- eight -- and that'll let. We're gonna be watching from one of the suites at the false view is there anything we shouldn't do to distract you may be. Who. -- does that mean. With a snack no that's not encouraged to know we it's a broad street that it will you have a sponsor teacher -- Possibly you know we have a couple companies that are that are asking that were -- it now. At this point it's not definitive but there's the -- Let's. ABC told -- because they're going to be covering this live and and obviously no one wants to see a guy -- on TV life that's not. What everybody wants. Couple things there's a delay for one there's kind of -- But also they are the ones that are really pushing it worth its course -- the -- pretty much saying I have no choice but to Wear tank we're working through those details now. Because that's not it's just it is cumbersome it's something I've never ever done. In the since cited in wire so. It's going to be quite unique to I have to Wear one for sure and in a car from little out of place. What do you think it says about us because we're just talking about this at dinner last night. The people that want to watch you walk with out that harness what does it say about us. Well I think it I think that's part of that real is the fact that the strike could fall. And could lose his life just like people who watch NASCAR watch races after this people who -- against. We do wanna see -- later in the checkered flag but we also would much interaction assortment apparently. And it. That's the weird part of the human spirit but nobody want. To see you finally want Cuba now parties like what could happen I think that I -- allure of at all. It's just upsetting to me. That's again that's for so long. Never in my career and that's what I tell people that say that look at it look at my history right it's never -- -- video anywhere me. What's more exciting the first step onto the wire at the last step off. I would say though last or helpful development mean really start to relax we'll take it on the wire. And getting off the course is victory. The very final part where you're kind of because if people don't know that wire you know sags down in the middle and then you know you your climate and the higher up. That last final -- Klein describes that walk and how difficult the incline is on that wire. You know that you believe it or not that decline is harder in the -- Claude. It's declined this where where I'd be in the walk walking downhill. Just like going downstairs you're going downstairs and you were to have a mishap that the stairs or further away from you. Or they're grounded this. And -- same with -- the wire preferred it it's more strenuous and physically demanding an uphill in of course. I'm somewhat fatigued -- -- -- make it to the halfway point however I look forward to that inclined walk much more than that he. Thank you for choosing this area to do this walk and bring attention to -- to -- we have great thing thank you so much to support great to talk to you that you take care. -- Elena kiss ninety point five.
