We’re making our way to Bar Harbor, Maine and we decided to do a little detour. As you may remember, we are caravaning with our friends Jonathan & Dasy from We Go Far. We’re having a lot of fun traveling with them. Jonathan and David are so much alike it’s scary. At least David has someone to talk tech talk to that actually understands what he is saying.
In my previous post I had mentioned we were going on a zip line tour. We had never gone zip lining before and that fit the Outside Our Bubble quest. So off we went.
It was an interesting drive. Beautiful mountains and scenery. Windy roads with one hair pin corner we had to look up on Google Earth to verify we could make it! We did. Plus it made us feel better when we passed a semi going the other way. For those of you who drive big rigs you know what I’m talking about.
Once we set up camp…wait, we don’t camp. Once we leveled and opened our slides we settled into our home for a nice cozy evening. The next day (yesterday) we headed for the zip lines! There are two in the area, but we leaned more towards the Zoar Outdoor tour because they had an after Labor Day special. If you know me, you know I love a deal. There zip line tours actually are called Deerfield Valley Canopy Tours. Not sure why, but who am I to argue?
We had sooo much fun. We had nothing but blue sky and sunshine the whole day. What a wonderful adventure. The course took us on 11 zip lines, 2 sky bridges and 3 rappels! As you can tell from the video David was really getting into this zipping thing.
We had wonderful tour guides Kim & Kevin, and they had a great sense of humor. We felt very safe and secure the entire way. We would highly recommend Deerfield Valley Canopy Tours if you find yourself in the area and wanting to zip through the trees! So Jonathan, Dasy, David and Myself are resting for a night and it’s on to Bar Harbor, Maine!
It looks like huge fun! Hope you had Duct Tape with you for emergencies!!! You should never, ever, ever go Outside Your Bubble without Duct Tape, never!
You probably had bungee cords on you…tragically, folks who haven’t discovered duct tape still secure stuff with bungee cords. Their frustration is evidenced in the high number of bungee users who jump off bridges.
You guys all lived through it and look like you had a really great experience! I love the video! Thank goodness that semi was not actually on the hairpin curve at the exact same time as you…whew!!! Could have been a bit dicey there…oh me oh my! I am sorry though that I did not have your camera on my netbook at that point! I would have loved to “hair-pin” with you!
I am glad that you are continuing your new experiences, D & B!
Hugs to both of you and T too! (if you can find where your kitties are hiding, you can pet them for me too, please!)
