Bloggers in the Wild

I recently had the opportunity to try a newly opened treetop adventure course that happened to be a few miles from our home. I had read about the opening and was dismayed to find that it was for kids 10 and up and adults and so I put it out of my mind. But when the call when out for an opportunity to partake in some fun...I said why not?
Go Ape

Blue Jay Point County Park in North Raleigh is already a pretty awesome recreation area on it's own but now the addition of Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure makes it even better! It's a chance to partake in nature but at the same time test your true sense of adventure. I was happy to attend the event and meet up with an old friend and in the process make two new friends.

Taking a break before the next course


I was a bit hesitant when I arrived at the Go Ape office to check in, mostly because I have a slight fear of heights. I wondered if I would be able to let myself zip once at the top of the tree structures. Thankfully our group was supportive and quick to make sure each one of us was okay. There were some doozies on the course and it was nice knowing an encouraging word was only a yelp away. 

Always Stay Attached.

Even with a few questionable obstacles, we all made it to the end. There was only a time or two that the fear of heights made me waver but I was able to move past it and keep going. And I even tempted to try the difficult course towards the end but saved it for next time. I will say it was because I was weary...

Whee....there I go!
Our instructor (Cameron) was thorough and added a bit of humor to things without being over the top. Things were presented in a way that helped you remember what the rules were and that while fun, you still needed to be careful.

Awkward.

 We made it to the end and were better for it. Some of us stepped way out of our comfort zone, others just needed a break from the day to day and still others just wanted to have fun, I'd say Go Ape served all of us just what we needed.

Myself, Sarah, Reese and Essense.
