Jess took to ziplining like a duck to water. Calm and unfazed, she’d inspect the gear, make sure all was hooked up and away she’d go without a blink.
She’d been a little nervous before, so I had sat her down and said, ‘Jess, it’s a very strong cable, well attached on both ends and has a breaking strain of three tons. You weigh less than one tenth of one ton, so you’ll be fine. The extra cable also has a three ton breaking strain. Your harness and safety cable can each hold a ton. So you’re fine, kid.’ She nodded.
So how did she do? Check her out! My brave girl. Nonchalant even.
Hope she did not have to walk back.
No, it’s 4km of down, down, down in ten sections, then a short sharp ride back to the top in a 4X4.
Wow she`s brave. Did you and your son go as well? The Karkloof one costs R400 how much was this ride?
I think much the same cost. Tom stayed in the car. His loss.
It’s 4km of zipline in ten sections and then you catch a 4X4 ride back to the top.
Brave? She listened to the multiple safety factors (you’re really secure!), checked that all connections were made and then relaxed.
