This week I did something wild!  I pushed my limits, and enjoyed eight zip lines on the Oregon Coast in Warrenton.  I’d never attempted anything like this adventure.  It got my heart rate up, and made me scream to the top of my lungs.

Watch me zip down the fastest line there called Huckleberry on The Survival Bros YouTube Channel

What it’s like to jump from the top of the tower on an Extreme Zip Swing or Zwing with a 20 foot rope attached to the cable!

Enjoy a gallery of my photographs from my trip to High Life Adventures:

My tour group of eight people took around three hours to complete the course.  We had two local, and friendly guides.  They communicated with small radios attached to their harness.  One guide would go first, then use a rope to gently bring them to a controlled stop.  The female went last, and was responsible for securing us properly.  You don’t have to walk much in between the routes.  In fact, they have a 4×4 vehicle if you want to use it, or get spooked and need a ride back to the parking lot early.

Jumping from the observation tower is intense.  There are three different lines from that point, on two levels.  SPOILER ALERTS: You get a cookie and a juice box halfway through the tour, plus spring water.  Soon they will have a wood stove operational for the brutal winter months, and a wind turbine on top.  Also, be on the lookout for Sasquatch.  I just saved you a heart attack, and/or a lawsuit.  I threw a legit left jab to the face of the masked man, and nearly delivered a swift leg kick before realizing I wasn’t in danger.  Fortunately, when he sneaks up, you’re still locked to the zip line, and can’t fully attack!  

I would highly recommend going on this zip line tour.  It costs $99, and you can also try THE ZWING, their extreme zip swing.  I did, and got a high-visibility rubber bracelet as a souvenir.  The add-on is $29 more, but worth it, if you can keep down your cookie.  I was attached to a longer, 20-foot rope, and jumped off the side of the tower instead of from the middle like most of the group.  So I flew 40 feet across, and then dropped towards the lake, on the 1200′ long cable.  I screamed like Bigfoot, and was definitely the loudest in the group.  I look forward to zip lining again soon, and possibly filming even more.  Honestly, this would be a hard hobby to master.  The easiest way to stay facing forward is to hold your line towards the top of the connection.

Each Zip Line is named after a native plant or tree

Survival Bros eats fresh slices of smoked fish on the Oregon Coast.  Bell Buoy is one of our favorite places to dine, and support.  Stop by their store when you’re in Seaside, OR.  They can and smoke on site, right off of Highway 101.  I bet I could eat pounds of this meat easy.  It’s the perfect food for building muscle.  I like to take a bag of salmon jerky hiking, but unless you have a cooler, it has to be consumed within a few hours of purchasing.  Have you tried seafood like this?  Listen to the locals when you’re on vacation.  They know what’s best.  Please subscribe on YouTube for more adventures.  Thanks.

 Like seafood?  I didn’t until I grew up, and got a clue.

Survival Bros checks out the eroding beach, and efforts to save the sewer plant in Seaside, OR.  The city has put up a small rock wall, but that hasn’t seemed to help much.  Look at all the trees that have been swept away into the water.  A running trail has also been destroyed due to Mother Nature.  Thanks for visiting.  Please subscribe to our YouTube channel to get all the updates.
