It was such a blast, I would recommend anyone give it a try. I did them in St. Lucia a few years ago, but this time was WAY more high-tech. There, a big guy was waiting to catch you at the next treetop. Here, they have springs and pullies. The only drawback to that is that as you hike up the moutain, you have to carry twenty pounds of gear. Darn near killed me, that did. The ziplines themselves were a piece of cake after the hike.
(To go fast. Like I want to. Not.)
(to slow yourself down)
Cute guy, huh?
2.Ready To Go!
3. Going Higher
Now keep in mind, I've never been on a chair lift (is that what it's called?)
THAT scared me. I thought I was going to break my neck getting on. Or getting off. Or in the middle. Geesh.
4. the Adrenaline.
Now, keep in mind, we've completed the CLOTHESLINE,
which was 800 feet long and 25 feet above ground.
As we were hiking Up, Up, Up, we noticed a couple of power lines above the trees. With those orange disc-y things to keep planes from running into them.
Except they weren't power lines. They were our ziplines.
1862 feet long. 300 feet above ground.
5. We're up next.
I love you Kaitlin! I love you Mommy!
(I can't tell you what I said after that. This is a family blog.)
Now before you watch this, I have to warn you, it ain't that easy to make a movie as you're trying not to die. You'll need to cock your head to the left at the beginning, and a couple of times again, and as we're coming in for a landing, but hey. You can pretend you're actually DOING the Adrenaline with us!!!
That was ne in the red helmet. Notice my perfect torpedo form. Not being silly like the videographer.
6. We Survived!
I look a bit hysterical. I know.
7. The Highline
This one was so fast, they tied a purple parachute to my a$$.
We have a video of that, but I'll spare you.
As we neared the end of this one, I was thinking to myself. THIS is going to hurt.
And it did. I was shaking so hard, they had to hold me up.
8. The Finale
What can I say?
It's kind of anti-climactic. I admit it.
