Life List #17 - Canopy Tour

3 year Anniversary Celebration

After reading Maggie Mason’s experience with a cable trail I just had to try it. It seemed like something I would enjoy.
After signing some indemnity forms, which included wild animal attacks, we went outside to get strapped in.

Hulk Smash!

Good lord! Getting into the gear for this event was quite an experience on its own. Once again, I look like a dork with my helmet and glasses.

Look at me GO!

The first few cables were the longest. Standing on the platform looking down to the next was breathtaking, a little scary, but mostly exciting.

Longest Slide

We even came across an unexpected spectator. He was just chilling.

Hi there!

Honestly? I thought going on a cable trail would be much scarier. I figured I wouldn’t even be able to enjoy the scenery while flying across the landscape, screaming. But it was actually a very calming experience, and the scenery was pretty awesome. I would definitely do it again, but maybe next time I’d like to do something bigger, faster and ultimately scarier. I guess I’m looking for a rush.


We used Skyway Trails in Hazyview, Mpumalanga, South Africa. They were very friendly and helpful and made us feel extremely comfortable. Thanks guys!

Jumping on it

So, here I go jumping on another bandwagon. I have been following Maggie Mason's life list experiences and it is so inspiring to see someone take charge and make things happen. I want to be like that when I grow up!
I made a Life List. I've had it for a few months and I have actually crossed some things off. I will post some of the stories. They are not well written by any means but hey! Who cares? Right? Right? Hello? OK.
If and when I figure out how to place a link or a something to my life list I will do so. Any and all help will be appreciated, interwebs.

My First

I've been wanting to start this blog for years but figured I would just sound like a total idiot blabbing about myself and whatever small insignificant thing is going on in my life at the moment. Then I realised that well, that's kinda what I want to do. Get it out! Talk! Blab!
So here I go. This will be my place of motivation and hopefully making connections with people I would've never have met otherwise.
Be kind!
