Day 33

For my husband's birthday I gave him a trip. Basically we'd go anywhere or do anything he wanted to for a long weekend. I had my own ideas on what would be fun. 



This is what he chose:



Whanna see it from a MonkeyCAM? 








Um, that "Monkeycam" is going off a 290 foot rappel! 
Those little, itty, bity, white things are People! 

Yeah, you read that right, nearly 300 freakin' feet of terror!!

I've rappelled a lot since I married the Norse one. Can't say I've ever enjoyed it, (since I am terrified of heights) but it is a great way to practice my faith building skills

For example, when I am anchored to a tree and stepping into the abyss my thoughts turn to religion. 

They go something like this:



"Please God, don't let me fall and die. Though. I am willingly throwing myself off a cliff, please be mindful of my children and that they will be orphans if I drop/bounce/slam off the sandstone walls to my death. So yeah, you know, if you're not too busy helping all those people suffering from starvation, war, and cancer don't let me fall, please don't let me fall, please, please, please, please!!!!!"

Wish me luck! 

Gulp.

He's a lucky man to have you for a wife. There's no way I'd follow my hubby down there.

oh my - you are so brave. So glad my hubby only likes to ride motorcycles, but I have flown over my handle bars a few times and crashed many times.
