Never a dull moment! Wanted to show my 14 year-old daughter and her best friend a good time and I hit a home run. As it turned out, my 65 year-old father joined us on the trip as well with two other adrenaline seekers. Everyone had such a great time with Alec, 'Bama, and Stinger; they were so helpful in easing any fears and making us all feel comfortable and confident. My daughter had a couple jitters, but I was so proud of her at the end of the tour and thought the guides, with their low-key encouragement, really made a difference. Did I mention that my dad went from couch potato to an extreme zip-liner that day? That's how cool those guys were; they made him feel like zip-lining should be part of his everyday life - lol!
There was a bit of hiking, but the views were so incredible and worth it. I thought that the lines were set up really nice in that you got a chance to get used to it as they increased in length and speed in a gradual way. Rappelling the tower at the end of the day was really the icing on the cake. Of the 6 on our tour, I think there was only one guy that had a lot more experience than the rest of us, but I know that everyone in our group walked away with a level of confidence and a totally awesome experience that we will remember for many years to come...with bragging rights!!!
I'll be back again with the rest of my family!
