We're soaring, flying!

25th July 2019


We're soaring, flying! 

Today a few of us were determined to take on the big zip. However due to its popularity queue time were very long. So we woke up at 5:30 and walked down to the tent to wait to get a wristband with our time slot. We ended up waiting 2 hours till we could get our wristband as people camped out during the early hours of the morning to get tickets. We got a 9 am slot and had exactly an hour to run across to the entire other side of camp to grab our bags and cameras.  They increased the minimum weight to 150 lb instead of 50 so people carried lots of bottles and water- some varied rocks. By the time we arrived at the zip itself after a long hike up the mountain to it and then waiting and a debrief then gear up we didn't finish till 1:30. However everyone including me thought it was amazing and definitely worth the wait. We then entered to the Italian food house and ate their pizza then walked back to camp to prepare for our American guests- we switched half our unit for theirs for our dinner. Since then they never left our site however they're always at our site because we're so amazing. But honestly everyone has heard of the wonky donkeys probably because we're load and crazy.
