Greetings from the jungle

Many people start off the new year with a resolution - they want to stop doing something, or try and change something in their life they feel is negative. I like to think of things in a different way - a new year is a great opportunity to try something new, to set new goals, to improve yourself in some way. Rather than trying to correct a negative, I prefer to enhance a positive :)

That being said, on Jan 1 2008 I went skiing and got my butt handed to me by Alpental (That Edelwiess Chair is not messing around!)

So, this year I decided why not entrust my life to some Ticos and go on a zip line! It was a great tour of the jungle canopy but I didn't bring my camera along for fear of breaking/smashing/knocking/dropping it.
safety gear lined up and ready to go
All-in-all? It actually wasn't all that "thrilling" - I had fun, it was nice to go fast through the trees but I don't have a fear of heights so being on a wire high above the ground didn't get my heart racing as much as that sensation of falling does...I would rather do Tower of Terror or Free Fall again

This is all that was keeping me alive. And it didn't even phase me.
