    I ran through this kickass adventure course in the Adirondacks. It reminded me of that movie w/ Kevin Bacon & the non-Feldman-Corey.

    I wasn't dumb enough to bring my phone w/ me, but here are some pics from the google:

    Our reservation was super late, so I only made it through 3 of their 5 basic courses. Next summer I'm gonna crush them all. :mad:

    Zip-lines & Tarzan swings are tits. TITS!! :cool:

    There's one out here? :woot:

    I've gotta find that. I never even considered this kind of shit before. It's F'N awesome.

    I have tentative plans to goto (what I think is) the second biggest zip-line in the northeast, next month. I can't wait.

    Keywords "homemade zip line" :eek:

    Funk that noise. :no:

    This place was very professional. I had no worries- once I embraced the redundant safety system.

    I talked to one of the dudes, he said they get about 400 people a day (at 45 bucks a pop. Sweet change) so they have to do full course maintenance every two weeks.

    looks like a lot of fun.

    in my younger days i would have dug the crap out of that.

    i don't like big heights but i'm fine with being in trees. it's the hairless ape in me.

    we mostly have pines and stupid stuff like that. i miss the forests back east.

    oh the things i could do with a forest out back. :leaf:

    I'm terrified of heights. It's my one fear (outside of death. They go hand-in-hand though :jj: ) and it was cool. I just took my time. Let other fuckers go by.

    You're in-charge of your own safety. They show ya, put you through a mini-course, but once you start it's all you. To some people that sounds terrifying, but it actually made me feel more in control. Which helped.

    i've done a few dangerous things in my life and it wakes you the fuck up.

    young men often end up in life defying (death defying?) situations due to ego, stupidity or women. :jj:
