I'm here to tell you that it doesn't have to be that way. You can fly--just like in the dreams.
Yes, I did that with the flying Goat and Lil' OB. Yes, I was a-scairt at the beginning of the day. No, I had never ziplined before.
Peeps, this rocked my face off.
The design of the Navitat Asheville course is sheer brilliance, as is its progression. There's ten zips in all, with the longest at 1,100 feet. The first two zips are gentle. The third is a bit more intimidating, but you have some confidence by then. By the time you get to the zips that traverse tunnel of trees and fly over canyons, you're more than ready for it.
What a kick!
Now get a jar, label it "ZIPLINE!" and start dropping your nickels in. This is one thing you must must must must do. I'll be saving for my next trip right along with you.
Asheville was great--more blogs to follow. In the meantime, I'm off to unpack, do the laundry, go to the grocery and the rest of it.
