Saturday, September 24th, 2011
Rock Creek, MD
Cost: $60.50 per person
Summer, Shana, Keith, Ashli & Kristin after Going Ape.
This activity was definitely our most exciting so far.
The Go Ape website says it all: “It’s not in the dictionary, but if it was, Go Ape would be described as a ‘treetop adventure’. We take one lush, green forest and a healthy dose of breathtaking scenery; blend with a smattering of treetop high wires, tricky crossings (using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire) and wind-in-your-face zip lines; finished off with a mega dose of people in search of their inner Tarzan.  We then equip people with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to fly on zip lines and swing through the trees. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests (not in monkey suits unfortunately!)
The result is spectacular. The Go Ape outdoor adventure experience gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones ….”
This TAOS adventure not only tested each of us on many levels but also left us ready to do it all again. A special thank you to Keith, our wonderful instructor – we will be back soon!
