    World's Most Insane Rope Swing Ever!!! - Canyon Cliff Jump

    I have added this to my list of things to do .... NEEEEVERRRR ! It's sort of a flip-side bucket list!

    I don't know where they get the nerve or courage!

    Nope, I wouldn't do that even with a zombie horde chasing me.

    This is how boring I am... I just started a bucket list and I've only got two items on it so far. I want to see fireflies and I want to visit Las Vegas. I'm only about a day's drive from LV so that's an easy one and I just need to go east of Kansas to find some bugs. I was reading online that you seldom see fireflies west of Kansas. Weird, right?

    Snooze, fireflies or lightning bugs as we called them, were a great part of my childhood summers. We could stay outside in the evening until it was dark enough for the lightning bugs to come out. Then we'd gather some in a jar and take them into the bedroom when we went to bed to watch them flash in the dark. If you flashed them with a flashlight, they would flash back at us! A thrill only a 7 year old can truly appreciate, I guess.

    I have been told that we have lightening bugs in Colorado, too, but have not seem them here.
    They are supposed be in the Arkansas River valley, near Salida and Buena Vista.
    I have never been in that area at night time.
    I may have to make special trip.

    Loved Tabby's story. I remember those evenings well.

    Back to the OP, eh, no.
    I have dived off cliffs and off the flight deck of an aircraft carrier into the water. I have even jumped out of perfectly good airplanes.
    Height doesn't scare me. Well, not much.

    I have had too many ropes come undone or break, to trust one for something like that, I think.

    I think I'd pass on that rope swing. It looks like fun, but I think I've used up all my good luck.

    You can see in all of the face shots, every one of them has that moment where they have decided that wasn't the best idea they ever had. Then, the rope takes hold, and the relief is almost palpable.
