Wednesday, May 13, 2015 – Oh what a wonderfully fun day we had today! We set out to go zip lining and got side tracked when we walked through town and sat down in the park to listen to musicians pickin. I’ll write about that adventure later, but today I want to tell ya’ll where we went from there – to the Loco Ropes location in Mountain View.
The really nice guy, Anthony, that we met yesterday when we went to check it out greeted us to start our adventure!
We went inside and signed our lives away so they wouldn’t be responsible for anything Roy and I might do up there! Anthony and Cari fitted us with our harnesses and put on our helmets! Okay we could back out now, but being Dora’s brave little explorers that we are, we went on.
If you can make it up the many, many steps to where you get launched. you can do this. Roy and I are definitely not the perfect specimens of health, so if we can do this anyone can. Our friend Angelique bravely zip lined a year or so ago, and she was my inspiration for doing it today!
Once we were at the top. Anthony hooked us up to the overhead machine and gave us some instructions, then OFF ROY WENT!!! He went first and it was so cool to see him flying through the air. I videoed him going to the other end and took pictures of him returning. He survived, did not fall and had a great time so I did it too.
It was like being a bird, flying through the air. If I didn’t love being a human I think I’d be a bird! I did remember to look around and see everything from way up there which was awesome. My scream at the beginning wasn’t fear, it was from happiness that I was doing it! I’d recommend it for anyone, even the faint of heart! Here’s pictures of our adventure and videos following that!

I am so glad we didn’t chicken out and have now had this experience. We may even go back again before we leave town next week!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
