What is Go Ape's National Live Life Adventurously Day, you ask? Every ticket purchased for this Saturday's event, Go Ape is donating one ticket to Big Brothers Big Sisters. National Live Life Adventurously is your chance to get out of your comfort zone and make a positive change in your life while helping someone else.
How was it? Awesome! The weather was perfect and the experience is one Joe and I won't ever forget!
We arrived about fifteen minutes before our scheduled time slot. We filled out the necessary paperwork required and then looked around listening to sounds of those ahead of us enjoying the park. We heard excited yays and claps and whoo hoo's. The experience of zipping through the trees brings it out in you.
Once we began our guide, Neil, instructed us on proper techniques and adjusted our safety harnesses. He guided us through the introductory zip line and when we were ready, he released us to our own devices. He didn't forget about us though. He was out there along the way making sure we were comfortable in what we were doing and the more we did, the more we were.
The Treetop Adventure has six sites along the way with tricky crossings that includes bridges and tunnels made from wood, rope and super strong wire. I skipped the difficult rings course. We got a workout while we were
there. Climbing up ladders made from rope, walking across tiny bridges while looking down as you hang from above and then zipping to the bottom in order to get to your next site. Super Fun. It was a blast. We feel extremely lucky to be asked to participate in this amazing adventure and sharing with you our experience.
Step out of your comfort zone this weekend and help share with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
