|15ft for the first jump, and 26ft from the top|
Yesterday I realized I didn't have an extra pair of contacts...eeek...stupid me. I tried going to Walmart and buying some...but they wouldn't sell me any unless I had an appt at the store and a fitting, etc. I was like "I just ordered the same ones online and needed none of that." Grrrrrr. Oh well...guess I was going without my glasses.
I picked Tracey up nice and early and we made our way to Gore. It was a beautiful day...really couldn't have asked for a better day . Our heat was to start at 11am.
|This was the first obstacle. Those logs started|
to bounce once more people started walking.
|Obstacle #2 - those ponds all had frogs in them...yup|
bull frogs!! The water was deep enough to swim it.
|You jumped in the water...which was deep and swam to the other side.|
- monkey bars - once again - I tried the higher bars and made it across...my grip strength is getting better.
- A scale wall with a fireman pole to get down
- a smaller waterslide which was fun
- tightrope walk - this one was fun...I actually kind of bounced across
- hay bale leaps
And this leads us to the Sumo jump! Tracey and I climbed that thing like champs and looked over the edge. That was the wrong thing to do...I froze. I couldn't...and then I got inside my head. My fear of heights took over BIG TIME! Tracey tried to go once and backed off...she wasn't sure she could go either. Another group of my friends climbed up behind us...and they bravely jumped. That's all Tracey needed...she went. Me? Nope. I sat on the edge....for a LONG time! I mean long enough that the volunteers were like "Okay...you need to leave now"
|There I sat!|
