“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.” Pope Paul VI
My husband, Rob, set up a zip lining adventure last week. Unfamiliar and a bit skeptical at first, I ultimately rose to the challenge. The location: Davis, OK (about a 1 hour and 15 minute drive from our home in North Texas). Air Donkey Zipline, in the Arbuckle Mountain area, is a 2 to 2-1/2 hour (1 mile total length) zip line canopy tour that leads adventurers through the tree tops by means of 6 zip lines and 1 sky bridge.
We climbed a few nail-bitingly steep ladders along the way.
And, whoosh, he’s off. Rob was really fast! And here, you get a better perspective of the vast abyss over which we zip-lined. Rob really excelled!
Our friend, Keith, zipping right along! This wasn’t his first rodeo!
We’re ready for our next zip-lining adventure, perhaps past volcanos and tropical forests next time!
