So my redone Chewie legs (using 15" drywall stilts now) went pretty well. I made it about 2 1/2 hours and the biggest problem was the fact that my shoes that I bolted to the stilts were old grass cutting shoes so they were too tight aronud my foot. I'll go get some new ones and that should take care of that.

I top out at about 7'6" or 7'7" now. What do you all think????

Thanks all.
I'm really amazed at the difference 5 little inches make. Even the other base/garrison members are amazed when I walk around now.
