52 Projects is an adventure in discovery. Every week, for 52 weeks, do something. Something you’ve never done before. Something you’ve always wanted to do. Something that scares you. Something that inspires you. Something that inspires others. Something that tickles your fancy. Something that caught your eye. Something that just popped into your head. It can be big. It can be small. It can be whatever you want it to be. Find out how doing something can lead you to discover things about yourself, your world, your God. Then, come here on Sundays and share it with others. I'll write about mine here, you write about yours on your blog, then use the tool in my post to link to your something. Please feel free to jump in and participate anytime throughout the year!

Week 35: zip line

Wow, it's week 35 already and it's hard to believe how fast the year is flying by! And speaking of flying by, this week's project was doing The Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour at the Wisp Resort in the mountains of western Maryland. What a thrilling adventure it was!

We had stayed at the resort a few weeks ago so that Breen could do a test ride on the race course for the Savage Man half iron man race. At the time, we wanted to do the zip line tour but it was filled up so we prepaid and made our reservations for 2 days ago when we traveled back there for the actual race (and what a savage and brutal race it was).

This was quite possibly the best $39 plus tax per person that we've spent in a long time. The zip line tour started at the top of the mountain where we worked our way down to the bottom, tree by tree. We were strapped in to harnesses and attached to a pulley system. It was the perfect experience for me since the cables weren't too steep but took me along at a very fast speed. It really did feel like I was flying through the air.

Sorry for getting this posted a day late but Sunday was a crazy day. We were up and at the race site by 6:30am, left there around 4pm and drove for several hours to get home at around 10:30 pm.

What did you do this week?


  1. That looks like so much fun. There is a place to do the zip line about a hour away from my sister in Ohio. All the women in the family want to go try it out.

    This is my first week on the project. I'm looking forward to doing this. I don't know why but for some reason Mr. Linky keeps putting up the wrong link for my project. Here is the right one.

  2. Okay Jane it's the right link up there just the wrong title.

  3. Wow, you put the Jane in Tarzan and Jane! That would scare the heck out of me, but I guess that's the general idea behind the 52 projects -- to try new things and push boundaries. Great going, Jane. And I'm assuming Tarzan, I mean Breen, is going to fill us in on the Ironman after he recovers a bit? Hope it went well.
