    Cornholio, how was NC? In Raleigh, it was a beautiful weekend, except for the pollen. lol

    Howdy! Having fun in Austin. Heading to San Antonio tomorrow morning. There's a zip line here but hubby doesn't want to try it out. We parasailed over the Pacific in Acapulco but that was many years ago.

    I'm so jealous of both of you. I've always wanted to zipline. Never tried it, but it sounds like so much fun. Have a great time.

    I've never ziplined either. Is it anything like riding a roller coaster? More thrilling or nothing close to it? It looks relaxing to me, but that's because I'm not way up there looking down. lol

    It's as much fun as a coaster, but in an entirely different way. On most ziplines, you just go straight - distances from 50 feet to a mile (BEST EVER). It's much smoother, and no loops. It takes more personal involvement, because you sometimes have to help stop yourself, and you have to make sure your feet are in the right position for coming into the landing sites.

    It's more like parasailing, but without the boat and water.

    Hey Debb! I'm still here in NC. It's been crazy rainy for the past week solid here in the mountains, but today is our last day and the sun finally came out. Yay! I'm bummed that we didn't get any waterfall hikes in, but today we went to the town of Burnsville and walked around checking out the shops. Had lunch outside at a cute place on the town square called the Garden Deli and generally loved being outside with all the dogwoods blooming, plus the tulips and daffodils. Checked out several antique shops too. Spring is so pretty in the mountains when the sun is out! We'll be back at the end of May too! And October for leaf peeping. 🍁🍂

    I'm thinking of spending the next seven months getting in shape for THIS!!!

    I'm going to give myself a couple of months of warmup before I reserve it, but I want to do this more than I've wanted anything in a long time.

    Cornholio, I wish you had had better weather here in NC. This week we've had some beautiful days. Maybe, it'll be better on your next trip here.
