Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah

Remember that one time I wrote a silly little post about my Summer Goals?
No? Well, you can find it HERE.

I posted a list of things i would like to accomplish during the summer, as far as fitness and healthy living are concerned. One of those goals was to try Zip lining. AND I DID!

I have been running around like crazy lately. So, since I didn't have anything too pressing to do at work, i took the day off yesterday. My boyfriend happened to have it off as well, and we decided we wanted an adventure day. He called up a local zip lining place, booked us for a 3pm tour and voila! There was a total of 4 people in our group, plus two guides. The course was 5 different zip lines with an obstacle course in the middle. The guides were great and a lot of fun and the zip lining experience was amazing! I can't wait to go back and do it again. Here's some of the photos the guides took:

 At this point, we were 3/4 of the way done and we were 75 feet in the air. We had just finished a 650ft line.


 This is me riding the 650ft line. I FINALLY figured out how to keep myself from twisting around backwards. It's not as easy as you think.


 In the middle of the tour, there is an obstacle course with a cargo net, an aerial bridge, an aerial step path, and a multi vine tight rope walk. I'm on the aerial step path.


This is our tour group (minus guides) after we landed back on the ground. We were hot and sweaty but all smiles!!

Have you ever done something fun and crazy like zip lining?

Look how cute you and your man are in that first picture? You're sooo cute together!!! Ahhhh!

I have completed basic combat training which includes zip lining, repelling, grenade throwing, and about 1000 other cool things. I would LOVE to try doing zip lining again WITHOUT the drill sergent yelling directly in my face a bunch of rude things!!!!!

Your activity looks like so much fun and what beautiful surroundings to enjoy a day off! You deserve it girl!
