One more item my bucket list

Recommended Posts

I'm too old to be doing this, but this fall I tried out the new zip line over Mexico's Copper Canyon, supposedly the highest & fastest in the world. I was wagon master for an RV tpour group, so I pretty well had to set the example. There are 2, one is a high speed single run paralelling the cable car that lasts about 3 minutes, the other one is a one hour, 8 segment scarier proposition that starts and ends in the same place, but involves going over several side canyons and 2 crossings on suspension bridges with no sides ( there is a cable clip on to). It was a good job I have a healthy heart. I have zip lined before but never like this. It costs about $60. I suppose even with 300 ft you would be a blob of jelly if you fell, the only issue with this one is you would have quite few seconds to think about it.

WOW great pic's......

 

Never too old. While staying in Flat Rock NC a couple of years ago in a very active 55+ park a group of 20 of us, ages 60 to 80's, went zip lining here: http://www.earthshinediscovery.com/zipline.php

 

Definitely not as breath taking as your pictures but fun none the less. Also did some white water kayaking both firsts for me.

 

I won't go ballooning or sky diving but would consider zip lining or white water again, go figure?.
