1/05/2016 – Tree Adventure Ropes Course
Here is a day not to be forgotten.
Here is the energetic AOA bunch, looking fit and healthy, hanging on to every word that the instructor is saying. He shows us how to lock our ropes so that we are safe, and explains the protocol of the course. Start on the easier yellow and blue courses, then if you feel capable you can move up to the red, then black ones.
Seems easy enough, some of us are already wondering if this is the right sport for us! Hmm, it is rather high.
Me next, are you sure?
Never fear, this looks easy enough. Just put one foot in front of the other.
Just let me read these instructions here – WHAT, I have to grab that rope and it will take me gracefully to the ground!
But it looks an awfully long way down. And they said this was the easy course!
Here goes nothing. OK, so much for the easier course – what’s next?
