Well,  if you want to live life to the fullest then you want to play it safe when it comes to rock climbing! And for one thing that means not climbing in a shady area after a pounding night of rain. So we explored the Green Mountain National Forest a bit then headed down to Western Mass. for a secret spot in the deep woods… For our first solo top roping climb!

 

We played around for a bit, with different equipment and knots… No matter how confident we felt,  before we went too high we tested and observed the anchors, the rope, and the elements.  The slab was a little wet still so we took it easy. Feeling good about putting up a safe top roping climb for ourselves. Doing some more research on the climb, then off to bed. More to come tomorrow 🙂

rock climbing Jamica VTRock climbing adventure tomorrow in Jamaica, VT.  Top roping will be our focus.  We have had our lessons, and read our books…Now it’s time to get out there and do it on our own!! We are excited and hope the rain holds out. Still looking for a spot to park the bus for the night and taking in the beautiful Green Mountain forests. Stopped at a cute little cafe in Townshend, their General Store, who serves free wifi,  yummy breakfast all day (7 AM – 7PM),  fresh deli and bakery snacks.

Pictures of the adventure coming soon!!! 🙂

 

 

Sedona, oh how we love you!

Sedona, where to start?

Sedona is one of the most amazing places we have found while traveling the US. Natural beauty abounds, adventures around every corner, great food and spectacular lodging. We were lucky enough to try our hand at off-road “jeeping” on the rocks, and horseback riding. We spent our spare time hiking, hanging out at our amazing A-frame cabin, and exploring the local shops and eateries.

Zip Away Action

This was one of the most fun adventures so far… Sailing 600 ft. in the air on a very thin wire, well at least it felt thin. 😉

This was taken at Hunter Mt. in New York. The guys here are really professional, and would recommend them any day! I have to say this was the second time we did this adventure and it was just as thrilling and epic the second time around.

What adventures are on your bucket list?

We  have so much more to share beyond our extreme activities.. So we added a Gemini Life Surfers blog and a Gemini Life Surfers website to the world wide web.  We will talk about other aspects of our life and adventures such as tiny house living, bus life, the simple life, homeschooling, family life, going green, sustainability, the rat race (and leaving it), inspirational quotes, original thoughts, and much more.

Live Life 🙂
