Anyone here every slack lined before?

I was reading about it last night, and realized I had most of the supplies to rig up a slack line so I decided to try it today. Its alot of fun, I can get about 1/2 way across the 25-30ish foot line before I fall off. Hopefully by the end of the day I will be able to get most of the way across. Some of the guys that do this are crazy, like jumping from the ground and landing and balancing on the line, swaying back and forth on it, jumping up and down on it, walking backwards, blindfolded, etc, etc.
