THE BEST 20 SECONDS OF MY LIFE

The idea of hanging 200feet or so above the ground was appealing but with it came Fear. It was exciting to think about it, yes, then after a few seconds of silence, you begin to be doubtful. Questions start pouring in...will the harness hold? can it really carry my weight? will I throw up in the air? puking? hell no! Gross thoughts start to attack the bravery I had in me. A few meters away at the ticket booth and joined by 2 friends (Joanne 3495 and Maki 3490, fellow officers with my Kabalikat family) I was starting to be embraced by the feeling of hesitation. I was seeing people being thrown and strapped to the harness then they push you and leave you clinging for dear life. Ok, here I am minutes away and started searching for the guts I had in me. I am no "cream puff" I am so doing this! Thinking it is no different from going on the loops of the old Revolution Roller Coaster Ride at Six Flags! Woohoo I find myself taking the steps on to Station 2, a brief discussion with the zipline staff, seeing Joanne strapped and it is time! I was carried feet first and holding on to the rope for steadiness, all strapped in!! There is no turning back!!! Here we go! The shouts, screams and @/!? were all over the place with me and Joanne side by side up in the air, then realizing it wasn't as tough as I imagined it to be...I HAD THE BEST 20seconds or so OF MY LIFE!!!!!
