    Posted: 19 June 2006 at 3:49pm
So as I told some of you the other week, as part of my job, we went out to an outdoor climbing wall, with a zip line at the top. I told some that I'd get the video we made, so here it is. The zip line is 32' tall, and 1000' long. The video is poor quality, but its better than nothing I guess. The guy in the video is a dude I work with, and he was spinning around slowly, and had to keep moving the camera, thus the shakyness:

That's pretty amazing. I wonder how hard it was to get that zip line set up.

Yeah, when I first got up there, I was kinda sketched out, looking down
38' (standing up) and thinking like "I have to walk/ jump off this thing..." I
knew I wanted to/ would do it, but it was still sketchy.   2 people went
before me and I was laughing at them so hard I had to go. Its a blast, we
gave me more slack + I'm a big guy, so I tapped the water before the
other side. That was cool, cause you just glide along the top of the water
if you make it so you touch.

Yeah, that wall/ zip line is a 3 minute walk from my house.
