Ha! Well Tim, they are local to me... And like all good blues bands, they can jam. Just bring your jug, spoons and washboard and we can take turns sitting in with the band.

If anyone has a song they can sing - let me know and I'll run it by them. I know RVM 1 sings Pretty Woman and they can play that!

I count Sue, Earline, Jeff and myself so far. Anyone else who ain't chicken? Check out the website

Home | Zip Lines Ouachita Bend

and see how many zips you want to take and let's see about making tentative reservations. I'd be bummed if I didn't get to go because they were booked. ...
I'm game to go - never done it but it sounds great. I don't have any idea how many to sign up for, I'll just do as told. After 49 yrs of marrage, I know how to follow instructions.

We would be interested in a North West Mini as we're hoping to be in Winnipeg sometime between Aug 3 to 16, 2014 for Folklorama. I've been 15 - 18 times (when your in the bus business it's hard to keep count) and enjoyed it every time. I also want to go back to the Boeing museum as I've never been their long enough to see all that interest me. The ladies wanted to go after about 1 - 2 hours and move onto some other attraction. With Stephanie, we can stay 1 - 2 days if we want to.

Thanks! Chilly 25 degrees here this morning. And another cold front expected next week. This has been more winter like weather than recent memory recalls. Although recent memory isn't what it once was...

I am interested in zipping but from the website... it sounds like you hike awhile, zip, hike zip, hike, zip ,hike zip,... well... 7 zips worth . I am sure that is more than the couple of miles I am able to hike at this point in time... and am wondering if you must then be down hill and have to hike up again?
So, I wrote an email to them asking how far the hikes on the 2 zip hike are and what the grades/ inclines are for that portion.
When you read the rules, it talks about strenuous hiking on uneven terrain and back conditions, etc. ( check with your doc)

Good idea, some of the ones in CO you zipped into then off of the same platform. If I can I'll visits this site and report back, may take a few days, it's Duck season here!

Hey Marty !!!

That reminds me of some old friends of ours that raised beef cattle. They would name them after different cuts of meat. Sirloin, hamburger, t-bone well you get the idea.

Cheers !!!

P.S. oh by the way they did get eaten. In fact I once named a doe that I was chasing doelinda, that was some wonderful venison

If I can let her talk me into letting her wash the roof, I'm sure she can talk me into letting her zip line. Oh! Wait! She has a mind of her own and never asks me for permission for anything. Shucks!

I posted a link. Have Earlene look at it and we'll get our heads together and decide which day we wanna go. Oh Mr schedule maker, which weekday would work best to go flying thru the trees?
I told her about it yesterday. I found out that the Kemah Boardwalk just up the road a piece has a zip line now. Probably about 100 yards. I'm not sure I can keep her off of it and wait until GC@CL.

This, for us, is a great way to start the new year.

Sounding good and wonderful to hear.
