A couple weeks ago, Colleen and I went ZIPLINING!!! Well, if you want to get all technical, the pros call it "zipping," so I'll say Colleen and I went ZIPPING!!! We went to a place not too far from Orlando - Forever Florida. Our first set of unsecure, construction-like scaffolding stairs were 45 FT and it consisted of 3 zips. Our guides referred to this set as the “bunny slopes,” or for those of us who don’t ski – the BABY zips. I have to admit, I was pretty cocky before hand. I believe I said more than a few times that this was “no big deal,” and “I’m not nervous at all.” But let me tell you, once I climbed up those wobbly stairs and was faced with having to willingly JUMP off this tower, it WAS a big deal and I was SO nervous. But nonetheless, I swallowed my fears (I mean, who’s gonna chicken out at that point?), and JUMPED. It was kind of the big joke that we all might vomit off the side while we were zipping, but I'm proud to report we did not. :) So we were successful with the first three and on to the second set of unsecure, construction-like scaffolding stairs that was 55 FT. I have to pause here and say what a GORGEOUS day it was.
It was actually pretty disgusting in the Orlando area the night before so needless to say, I was glad it cleared up! (Yes, they do let you zip in the rain.) The second set (of 4 zips) was a bit more daring you could say. We had successfully graduated from the bunny slopes, were hungry, and ready for more adventure. This time, we were zipping over water! They claimed that there were no alligators or anything, buttttt who knows. Our zipping adventures didn’t end before we had to cross a few Indiana Jones looking wooden bridges, and zip backwards!
But unfortunately before I knew it, our zipping adventures were over. I managed to record part of the last zip if you care to check it out:This This was definitely something "extreme" to me. And possibly one of the most adventurous things I've ever done. Next up - SKYDIVING! (kidding) So, tell me - what have you done that was extreme?
