I bought a six foot... expecting not to be as comfortable up there as I am
down on the regular....
but boy... it is pretty scary up there...

Anybody have any words of encouragement?

aye, that is very true. Go stand on something that's three feet high,
and jump off. That's how high you are on the giraffe.... not much, neh?

On a giraffe you will have much more time to react to a loss of balance
because you'll fall so much slower. You'll be surprised at how much
control you can have over the 6'er if you believe it and if you commit
to it. Idling, in many peoples opinions, is actually easier on a
giraffe.

make sure that the very first thing u do, once u've clambered aboard the
lumbering beast, is to jump off
just set your mind at rest that u can jump from that height and from
that raffie without killing yourself
that lil' bit of peace of mind will make a world of difference to the
time u spend just settling in with the new toy
pics?
