<p>10-50' in the air on all kinds of moving obstacles, zip lines, high wires, cargo nets and ropes.  One of the adults in our group didn't make it past the first course (and she's usually fearless, races sno-cross and all).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DS on the practice course where the Guides make sure you know what you're doing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52188/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 003.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13102" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13102/width/375/height/500" style="; width: 375px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DD on the Green Course - only 12-15' off the ground.  It was her (and the DS) first time doing anything like this.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52190/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 006.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13103" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13103/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DD Monkeying around.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52192/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 007.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13104" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13104/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>DD on the swinging logs.  It was easier if you just moved from log to log and ignored the red cable, but I couldn't get her to believe me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52194/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 009.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13105" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13105/width/375/height/500" style="; width: 375px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>DD putting her Game Face on for the final (Black) course.  The Black Course is up to 50' in the air and is A LOT of upper body work.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52196/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 011.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13106" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13106/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DD on the Slack Wire.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52198/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 012.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13107" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13107/width/375/height/500" style="; width: 375px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DD on the slack rope bridge on her way to the "Tarzan Swing"</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52200/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 014.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13108" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13108/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DD and her cousin racing on the big zip lines at the end.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52202/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 018.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13109" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13109/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DS is all business on the kid's course.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52204/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 023.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13110" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13110/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The DS in his glory.  He lost count of how many times he did the kid's zip line.  He did the kid's course 7 or 8 times.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52208/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 016.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13112" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13112/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>The pay off.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/52210/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Moreau 025.jpg" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13113" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13113/width/375/height/500" style="; width: 375px; height: 500px"></a></p>

<p>It was a great time and I highly recommend it!!!.  Safety is priority one but with that said I can't believe the stuff they let regular folks (non-climbers) be responsible for.  I was so proud of my kids, specially the DD.  She slipped and fell once (on the Black Course) but her harness worked as advertised and she kept on going, kicking my arse in the process (damn skinny runners upper body!).</p>

<p>My BIL does not share my love for snobby beer (<em>Why do you want to cut your beer with a knife?</em>) and this was what he had.  It worked.  :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I probably shouldn't tell you that Labatt Blue is my House Beer.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/blush.gif" style="width:18px;height:18px;" title="">   I've got cases of the good stuff, but with the exception of my neighbors, my brother and my 6 BIL's all like Labatts.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/dontknow.gif" style="width:37px;height:15px;" title=""><br>
