Have you ever wondered if you're getting too old to try new and adventurous things? If so, then maybe you should take a cue from 60-year-old Sue Austin from Tallahassee, Florida. After spending all of 2012 traveling the country and trying out different adventure activities like kayaking, surfing, parasailing and snorkeling, Austin decided that she liked ziplining best, so she set out on a journey to ride a zipline in every state of the country.
So far, she has ridden approximately 100 ziplines in states ranging from her native Florida to Ohio to South Dakota. We haven't heard whether or not she's made a stop in Tennessee yet, but the chances are good, because Austin says ziplines are usually found in the most beautiful places in the country. And that definitely describes the Great Smoky Mountains.
Considering there are more than 400 zipline attractions in the country, Austin says she's not sure if she'll get a chance to visit them all, but if she ever wants to zip line Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, she won't find a spot much more beautiful than Smoky Mountain Ziplines. And whether you're young or old, we'll be thrilled to have you here as well. We'll do our best to bring a little adventure back into your life.
