900m zip wire in North Wales, by @steevc


Adventure sports seem to be a big thing around North Wales these days. You can go mountain biking, kayaking, caving, climbing or other things. We opted for some gravity driven thrills. There are 3 big zip wires around an old slate quarry near Blaenau Ffestiniog. The first from the top of the site is really long. The others are actually quicker as the cables do not droop as much.

There is a little moment when you wonder what you are doing as you launch yourself out of the gate, but I trusted the equipment. You slow down quite quickly when you hit the end stop. It's quite a ride.

We had great weather. On some days you would barely be able to see where you are going. We had a clear view of Snowden and other peaks.

I just worked out how to log into DTube on both Steem and their own system. That allowed me to upload this video on my PC. I have had issues before and tended to use my phone, but that could be frustratingly slow and sometimes the browser would refresh and lose it. Mind you, I managed to get the wrong sort of 'snap' image that got cropped. Never mind.

Zip lines remind me of the Steem price during my Steem journey. I joined at the top!

You were blessed with some great weather and chose your activity well for that day!

No that looks like a lot of fun! I'm terrified of heights but think I could bring myself to do that.

That is pretty awesome. I used to be a facilitator for a ropes course at the campground where I worked after high school. We had a zip line too, but it wasn't anywhere near as long as this one. Looks like a ton of fun!
