In late December 2013 I visited Wisconsin, the frozen tundra, for my annual family vacation. I didn´t know what to expect. And it was surreal. Cold wind. Snow. Icy landscape as far as you can see and everything was frozen solid with temperature below zero - fahrenheit as well as celsius.
Despite the crazy weather I had the chance to watch a NFL game live - Green Bay Packers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers at the famous Lambeau Field. Finally. A NFL game. Finally. Lambeau field, the stadium I visited, when I was 15 years old, back in 1996.
Well, I´m a huge sports fan but never saw something comparable to a NFL game before. All I can say is, that it was a one of a kind experience. Packers fans are just unbelievable.

BTW. This is a none-commercial film. I´m just a fan of the NFL and especially the Green Bay Packers.

You won’t get much closer to Skylining than this!
Last week, we left winter behind and headed to the sun to try and turn our latest dream into reality.
we put up a line between 2 hot air balloons to try our first completely movable highline.
All of the Skyliners team was excited to put their skills to the test on such an amazing line…
Thanks to the talent of the pilots, we came really close…
We’ll be going back again very soon to make it happen - watch this space!
