Coffee Warrior Princess
I am a believer, Jesus, my Messiah. Coffee, love, inspiration and funny stuff...laughing is medicine. Nothing profane, family oriented.
On my birthday recently, Mr.CWP and my son and I went zip lining for the second time. This video is from Moaning Caverns in Sonora, CA. The line is over 1/4 mile long, 1500 ft. It was an adrenaline rush going 50 mi an hour. Well, I was going that fast, my son was a little slower. He chose the slower method. I chose the faster way to go like a missile. It was unintentional. I thought I was going the slower style of riding, but it turns out that holding one's arms in close and legs crossed and out front is fastest. My son is racing with me on this zip. He stepped off first, and I hesitated like a little weenie...lol...but then I saw my son go, and I stepped off. Mr. CWP rode off first so that he could take video off to the side of the platform. He wasn't allowed on the platform because that is dangerous to stand on while the ride is engaged. The stopping mechanism works like the hooks on an aircraft carrier and the stopping force is 2 g's. That means you get jerked to a stop rather quickly. My son and I went a second time on this zip, and I raced him again. I had to make sure that I drove the fear out. I don't know if all the fear of stepping off a perfectly good platform tethered to steel cables is gone, but I want to go back and ride it again, just to make sure :)3 years ago
