FGL TV: Zip Ready? Zip Away!

Zipping – have you done it?  Traveled treetop to treetop on a large cable wire, high above the valley, river or jungle below?

The latest episode of Feel Good Living TV highlights Zip Line Adventure Tours, a company founded and owned by Bradd Morse. (who also happens to be a very good friend of my husband.) The five-minute clip includes an interview with Bradd and a look at some of the zips on the mid-mountain tour at Hunter Mountain in the Catskill Mountains.  This tour is perfect for families and beginners!

If you watched the clip you’ll know that he is building two zipline tours at Hunter.  The second will be the longest in North America with a first zip that is 3000 feet long and about 500 feet high.  A hike to the top of Hunter Mountain allowed us to check out the starting zip (still under construction).  Admittedly, I felt scared just looking at it!

Bradd also built and owns a zipline tour company in Montego Bay, Jamaica where the longest zip is 1600 feet across and about 300 feet high.  Check out his Jamaica Zip Line adventure tour. Below is a short clip from our trip two years ago.

Adventures like this are a true test of strength, fear, ability to take risks (calculated) and trust. I know it’s not for everyone, but if you are an adventure seeker, I highly recommend trying a zipline – where ever you may travel!

In the Catskills?  Check out New York Zipline Adventure Tours at Hunter Mountain

In Jamaica?  Check out Jamaica Zipline Adventure Tours in Montego Bay

In New Hampshire? Check out Alpine ZipLine Adventures in the White Mountains (Near Loon and Franconia Notch)

The above links are not affiliate links, nor do I get compensated for this post.  I chose to highlight Bradd and his zipline because I think “zipping” is a feel good living activity that provides a big lesson in fear, trust and confidence building. We received a private tour because my husband and Bradd have been friends for close to thirty years!

Have you ever zipped or participated in another type of adventure seeking activity?  What is your favorite?  What’s on your list?

    I never zipped, but it’s on my list. I wonder if there are any in the Austin area. I’ll have to visit Google after this comment.

    The rush of speed and wilderness is a great combination. I loved that you equate this to feel good living because it is. We need excitement in our lives otherwise we aren’t growing.

    Stacey!!
    Love it!!!

    We went zip lining as a family when we were in Honduras. So fun!!! The very cool part – going “no hands” over the top of a Central American jungle!! And the guides at these places can completely make this experience something so memorable!

    Okay…and we were just in the Catskills last month, doing some exploring!! (a month too early, I guess – as this place looks like a blast!!)

      My first zip line adventure was in Costa Rica! Those exotic locations offer so much adventure! I wish I knew you were going to be there, would’ve had you check it out!

    Ah, there’s something involving height and falling that I could do instead of skydiving, which I’m not supposed to do because of the steel rods in my spine. Well, okay, I suppose I should take a look at the fine print first if I ever go zipping. But it’s worth looking into. :)

    Chris – Yes, check the fine print! And if all looks ok, I know you’re in CA…this particular friend also built the zipline on Catalina Island if you’re ever in that area!

    Hi Stacey,
    Yes I’ve zipped at a retreat where I was one of the speakers. It’s an awesome experience.

    Hi Stacey

    Wow, I have been hearing so much about zip lines lately. It looks fun, and no I have not done it yet. I have not been in a place that had it, but looking at the video and hearing some stories, a part of me wants to do it, and a part wonders if I would really want to do it… maybe one day I will have the chance to partake in this adventure!

    We are totally getting a group together to do this. Looks like a lot of fun.
