I'm checking another item off my Bucket List


I hope everyone has been enjoying what’s left of the summer of 2013. The weather has been so unpredictable, one week being damn chilly…almost fall like and then the next week the humidity is back with a vengeance. I have to admit I do love the cool nights since it has been very good for sleeping. The mornings are another story since one morning the house was registering 61F when I got up. I hate to admit it, but I was out the other day and I saw a few trees’ that have already started to turn colour at the very top. Autumn is my favorite time of year but August is way too soon to see signs of it, at least for me it is.

Well after months of saying that I was going to do it, and never going through with it, I have now completed another Bucket List Item. Yes, that’s right I finally did the zip lining and tree top canopy tour. After going down the first two zip lines with my heart almost falling out of my chest and landing with a rather huge thud on the platform at the other end I finally got my zip lining legs so to speak. The third zip line I attacked with more confidence than I knew I had and with a huge cry of excitement I cried out “holy hell that was freaking awesome!” as I landed on the platform. Simon the lead guide broke out in a fit of laughter but patted me on the back and told me I was a natural. Now I know he was inflating my ego but damn it felt good! There were a total of 8 zip lines, 2 suspension sky bridges, 14 tree topping canopy platforms and a 40-foot rappel. That was the scariest of all, lowering yourself down 40 feet of rope. I didn’t conquer my fear of heights and my legs almost gave out once I hit the ground, but I did it! My whole body was shaking but damn it I went outside my comfort zone to complete the one item on my bucket list that was holding me back! I can honestly say with all the confidence of the world…I AM WOMAN……HEAR ME ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The course takes a total of 2.5 hours to complete and in my opinion well worth the money!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 





 
This coming weekend is just going to be a lazy one. I don’t have anything planned as of yet, but who knows what might arise. The next weekend I’ll be off camping for the long weekend. To me, that’s the perfect way to end of the summer of 2013!

Have a wonderful week ahead my fellow bloggers and keep smiling.

Wow good for you! I wanted to try the ziplining in Whistler but never made it back up there. Not sure I could do the rappel thing though.
