THE STORY / WHAT IS IT?

3 years ago (within a couple of weeks) I went Treetop Trekking through the TOC with Perkin and had a lot of fun, so I feel I'm really overdue to try it again!

As for what it is, here it is in their own words:

"Get harnessed in and live an unforgettable experience at the tops of the trees. Travel through fun and challenging courses high above the forest floor and zip lines for that adrenaline rush.

"Stride along the top of the trees with the use of rope bridges, zip lines, climbing nets, footbridges, swings and more! Equipped with a harness you will progress, in complete safety through different levels of treetop courses which are adapted to one's age, height and strength. The adventure will begin with a mandatory initiation given by a trained guide who will explain the safety rules and how to use your cords, carabineers and pulley. During your canopy tour, this equipment will be connected to a cable which ensures your safety."

They have 80 individual activities in the trees, comprising 5 complete courses of varying difficulty. We've 3 full hours to play :)

I need someone to take me, so here I'm relying on you: be my chaperone!

PAYMENT:

If you want to come, please read this all carefully, and follow both steps.

The cost is $53.25 per person ($51.75 park fees + $1.50 for club administration).

Step 1: Email Me.
I don't have many spaces left, and don't want anyone to pay after they've been taken. Email me and ask me whether I still have space. You can find my email in my profile
This event can be joined only on a First Paid, First Added basis. I'll be taking the first 20 people to pay.

Step 2: There is no step two.

Because this is last minute, refunds will be dependent on there being a replacement for you :)

Note that this price doesn't include carpool costs to and from the location.
