Posted:hmmm.. best I can do is 12,100 feet at some pass I can't remember the name of in Maroon Bells national park in the rockies, just across the way from Snowmass mountain which I got to the top of the next day.



let's see, according to 1 foot = 0.30 meters, that comes to 3688 meters.



I have a solitary witness, but she is recovering from Burningman right now, so it may take a while for me to document this properly...



and planes don't count - I've done that too, but refuse to count it.



I'm winning!



anyone else?

Posted:oh hey - that was with fire though. On top of snow mass was the highest I've spun regular poi without the aid of a lifting device.

Posted:Ok then.

AS OF NOW (points)...spinning on Planes (waits for the jokes) is forbidden and deemed to be cheating.

Posted:well, you can do tail spins in planes still I think... right? those are scary though...eek

ok, so then the formal question is what is the highest you've ever done poi while standing on solid ground?

or is it highest fire poi on solid ground?

or both?

and please keep it metric people! wink

Posted:I've spun on a glacier at the base of Mt. McKinley, though I am not 100% sure of the elevation, the pilot who landed on the glacier said we were at about 14000 ft, which would be 4200 meters.

Twas very cool....er...cold...er...awesome. biggrin

Posted:hey... where'd my post go!?!

so anyway, looks like me and spit are tied for non-fire poi so far - snowmass is in that neighborhood too.

Posted:hey, does that mean that skydiving and spinning isnt allowed either?

we should have categories - plane, climb/assisted (drive up to top of hill, helicopter ride etc), and climb only. or something.
