Wow! Alan and I recently spent a lovely weekend in Northampton with some old friends -- who have retired and relocated to Cape Cod. We all decided that Northampton was a great mid-way point to meet.
And long story short -- Alan knew that I wanted to partake in an activity to mark my big 6-0 birthday that was both challenging and celebratory. I certainly found it in ziplining.
On the way home, we went to the Deerfield Canopy Tour in Charlemont, MA which has 11 zips, three rappels, and two plank bridges. Great guides led the way, each of us in harness and hooks, getting higher up (up to 50 feet) and zipping on longer and faster paths.
