ziplining adventures

I went on my first ziplining adventure earlier this week! It was super fun, and I’ve basically decided that I need to make a bucket list for before I graduate from med school/leave WV. There’s so much I need to do! (Right now, horseback riding tops the list. It’s so much cheaper here! $45 for 3 hours!? There’s another 3-hour one that goes down [I’m assuming they mean follow] a waterfall. And overnight trips! Oh em gee. Must go on em’. It’s happenin’!)

We did the TimberTrek Aerial Adventure, which was basically a zipline obstacle course. There were 5 different courses of varying levels–yellow being the easiest, followed by green (two versions), blue, and then the black diamond. I managed to complete all the levels, but was abandoned by my fellow companions. My friend took the escape in the middle of the blue one, so they just decided to watch my struggles for the rest of it.

Re-clipping my lifelines so I can climb sideways to the platform.

I don’t have much of a future as a tightrope walker.

I know it looks like I’m floating since the picture’s so small, but I’m actually hanging onto a rope. No levitation skills just yet.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned that I actually have a slight fear of heights. Here’s me trying to overcome said fear.

I had to keep re-clipping my lifelines on this obstacle, so I figured I’d put my legs to use, haha. Thank you, pole dancing. <3

There were many leaps of faith involved.
