Steely, thank you for addicting me to this, you scamp.
I say he makes it.

He's on the wire and making the steps now.

Not gonna lie, now that he's actually on the wire I'm a little nervous. Even though I know nothing is going to happen.

So far he's still dragging that stupid thing behind him.

His boots look quite supple.

He's walking downhill on the wire now and he's over the crest of the falls.

I hope Canada refuses to let him in and he has to go back the way he came.

You can hear him talking to his dad while he's walking.

I'm watching the TV and alternating between webcams. It's crazy to see all the camera flashes on the webcams.

He's almost over the start of the falls.

The hosts are talking to him now.

He says it's an unbelievable view. He's excited to be the only person in the world who has ever been there or will ever be there.

OK, all cynicism aside, the shot of him on the wire with the crest of the falls behind (and above) him was pretty amazing.

I can't even stand on a ladder to change a light bulb. I don't WANT that view!

He's in the wet zone and about 1/3 of the way.

You can finally kind of see him on the webcams. Little dots. If any of you are watching them too.

He's almost at the bottom of the rope loop on the rope and will have to start uphill soon.

He just said he's unhappy about the weather pendulum. Other than that he said he's okay with everything else. No complaints on the harness so far.

They said it's a tradition for him to stop in the middle and call his wife. They are wondering if he'll do that this time.

13 minutes in, I think I'm seeing the technique--right foot placed on wire so that wire runs between ball of foot and arch, and left foot placed to grip with big toe.

Off to string a clothesline across the bathtub and practice....

He's starting the uphill climb and supposedly it's a Wallenda tradition to call his family from a cell phone once he gets to the middle of the rope.

I doubt he'd be able to hear anything up there. The Falls are SO loud standing right next to them. I can't imagine being on top of them.
