Shiree, IWas wondering if you are on a zipline, and how long is it?

Good guess, 3DCatman, but nope - not a zipline! What you're seeing is my friend Nate climbing up the steel cable attached to an enormous dragline excavator (i.e., a crane like earth moving machine used in coal excavation). Here's a link to a picture with me standing next to the machine so you can see the scale of the thing: Thanks for asking!
