It's an adventure.
We definitely had a great time at Little Manatee this weekend. Shrimp boil on Friday night & after a few hours of hacking away at vegetation we came back for a most delicious Turkey Fry. Sunday morning was leisurely around the fire with scrambled eggs & hashbrowns, fruit, leftover pastries, & even cold shrimp.
I think you are right about rescue riders but I'm sure there are other places near us. I remember finding one when I started looking last year. I'll check it out again. As for ziplining we did it at Treeumph (treeumph.com/) over in Bradenton. I had mentioned this to a few others in the meetup group & if we planned it for a Wed or Thurs I'm sure we could get 4-6 others to come with us. Some might even take a day off work. This would be better in Dec as Nov is full & I'm in training backpacking.
So you have Wed & Thurs off? If so, I'll try to get some other thurs. hikes from meetup. As for ziplining did you do it yet? It's all a mental game: first you are harnessed in & always attached by at least 1 carabinner that could hold up a car! Secondly you just take your time, don't think about the height (you could hurt yourself falling off a stepstool). Third: you'll be having so much fun you'll forget about #2. Let me know when you want to go. Also still want to horseback ride again.
Hi Alex, glad to see you joined the Meetup. Still working nights & weekends? arl
