Facing Those Fears
This week the Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) expound on some of their favorite things to do this summer on their days off.
I went zip lining for the first time ever last week and it was great! Something I have always wanted to try, so I figured, why not? And I couldn't think of any reason why not to. So me and my girl found a zip lining place on the internet, and off we went, no hesitation. After meeting the other participating groups and a few safety briefings, we were up on this giant platform hooked in and ready to head into the top of the trees. I love trees!
The first line was a long one and it was really fun! Everyone got to part two pretty easily. It was at this point I realized one of the groups was some sort of military family split up, gotten back together or just met and hooked up? A mother with three daughters, and a father and son who were all nice, but a bit.... let's say too intense for the situation. I'm looking forward to a relaxing afternoon flying through the tree tops while they are making fun of each other and cheering loudly while the father is yelling instructions on how to do everything over the instructors.
The second line was a shorter one, but at this point we were also going from tree to tree via giant platforms built into the tree tops. It was at this point I realized I was now an Ewok on the forest Moon of Endor.
The third line was awesome because we were going through a sort of tree tunnel, nice and shaded by the thick amount of branches and leaves above. It was relaxing until I could hear the family again.
