Oh what an adventure. Bonnie, Sarah, Patti and I channeled our inner dare devil to ride 6 zip lines on Friday before Bloomsday. The ride to Wallace, Idaho was full of laughing, joking, and chatting! It was fun. "Are you nervous?" That was a common question for sure. We were all a bit nervous. I was anxious to let loose a little more than the last time I did this. Patti told us that she had to run and jump to take off and run on the landing when she did zip lining in Hawaii! No way I would do that with my bum knee. Same for Bonnie, knees don't work like they should. First question asked at the Silver Streak office was, Do we have to run on the landings or take offs? NOPE! Great, let's blast off.
OHHH, this is real. Look at all the gear! It is starting to sink in that we will be flying through the forest soon.
On the way back to the office! Love this picture of Ian! Handsome young man and he has a really kind heart!
As we were getting in the bus I took my helmet off. Drew said, "Where is your helmet?" I said I took it off. Whew! He was relieved that I had it. He said he wasn't worried about my head just his helmet. He said that in the most loving way of course!
We were loaded in the but and the bus wouldn't start. Not good but we weren't too worried because we were having fun. The driver tried again and Ian jumped out to help. No luck!
Hmmm what could be wrong? All of a sudden the engine roared. They were playing a joke on us. No problems with the bus at all. My kind of guys. I love a good practical joke!
We were told this spot on the street was the center of the universe. I am not that gullible. I would like to see some scientific documentation before I believe that spot is the center of the universe.
