We’ve Been Slacking

Way back in our college days, Chris and I discovered slack-lining while working at Outdoor Pursuits – we weren’t very coordinated then and I’m not sure that’s something that comes with age.

At least not after the age of three.

Back then, the line was set up using standard 1-inch webbing, tied as tightly around two trees as humanly possible. Nowadays companies are making the whole rig, easy to set up using a ratchet strap system. Muy bueno. And when you are a camp director there are perks – like pro-deals for such gizmos. Muy muy bueno.

Though the flailing arms may indicate otherwise, it’s quiet, um, centering. We’re doing good to make it past the big tree – and we both do seven times out of ten – but then we invite friends to play who smoke us with fancy turns at the end. She’s way more in touch with her inner hippie…

One day…
