Fly With Me: Costa Rica Day 5

Yodel Le Heeeee Whoooooooooooo! I figured I would start this entry a little different. Day 5 adventure y’all was the adventure of adventures!!!! Can it be topped??? I don’t know because it was pretty kick ass if I do say so myself. What was in store for Mom and me??? ZIP LINE!!!!!! YAAAAAAAS! We were able to sleep until like 730… but me being the bright eyed bushy tailed person that I am, was up at like 530. I was noisy… again but made it to my hammock to chill for a bit. Mom came out of her sleep to join me in the hammocks for a little bit. We didn’t have long to sit because our bus was coming to get us at 830a. SO EXCITED!!! I threw on some old gym shorts and tank top. I pulled my hair back in my two raggedy braids(They were so raggedy y’all) and put on my trail running shoes. Wellllllll on the way out dude from the cabin next to us(The boyfriend with the dog bone of a girlfriend) came out with a smile “Hey how are you?” “Doing good. How are you?” “Good. Are you going for a run??” “No not today. We are going zip lining!!!” “Oh how awesome!!!” I informed him of the adventures from the day before which was the hike. He got a disappointed look as he said that his girl would never be down for anything like that. But I told him that there was a MASSIVE spa day that followed. He brightened up and said she might be game for it since there was spa day that followed. I mean really dude why date someone who doesn’t enjoy doing the same things that you like?? That sucks!!! Whatever.  Not my problem!!!! So moving forward. Mom and I got ready and our bus arrived right on time. We hopped on the bus with a family of 3. They also happened to be from Texas. They were from Corpus Christi. I JUST forgot their names. The mom was Veronica, daughter Sierra and I cant think of the husbands name. He was super cool though. All of them were amazing. It was like a 10 minute bus ride to the treetop course. We hopped out of the van and it was game on. The guys fit us all in our harnesses, gave us hand guards and helmets. We got the fastest demonstration EVER and then it was time to zip

There were like 8 different zips, one or two tree crossings and one free fall bungee thing. It was so much fun!!!! I thought mom would chicken out but she didnt!!! She did everything!!! She did every zip and even the free fall!!!! MOM DID THE UPSIDE DOWN zip too!!!! YES SHE DID!!!! Our instructors were amazing, funny and super helpful. The course was well put together and was super safe. LOVED IT!!!

So after like 2 or 3 lines the guy takes us and we are all standing on this platform. He gives us the option to do the bungee free fall or cross the bridge. All of us chose the free fall. It was fun and terrifying at the same time. He clips you on to this motorized belt.  You jump and it catches you and lets you down to the ground slowly. Heres the thing. When you jump there is a lot of slack in the rope so you do free fall for like a half a second. The guy thought it was hilarious to push us when he thought we were ready. If we were taking too long to make up our minds when to jump; he would just help you along by pushing you over the edge.

Afte jumping from the top of a tree, we got to cross this crazy bridge and then zip through the rest of the forest. On one of the zips he made us go upside down. He said there was no other way to do it!!! THE HELL YOU MEAN THERE IS NO OTHER WAY!?!?!?!? Guess who he picked to go first??? Yup yours truly. So I stepped up to be the first victim and BOY DID I LOVE IT!!!! Mom screamed and called on Jesus when it was her turn. You guys I have never laughed so hard in my LIFE!!!! The video footage has my stomach hurting every time that I watch it and thats EVERYDAY!!! On the last zip, our guide nicknamed me supergirl. I was the last to go. Why?? Because he fixed my harness so I was hanging from my stomach. I had to kick my legs back and let ‘er fly… like supergirl. Well When I kicked my legs back… I accidentally kicked him in the balls and I just heard him grunt “OOOOOOY. Don’t put foot there. The boys are there!!!” So for 5 seconds I was supergirl!!!! I FLEW THROUGH THE TREES and it was AHHHHH-MAZING!!!!

The place was called Picillia Zip Line if Im not mistaken. I can not remember our guides but they were AMAZING!!! We went through all of the zips, they snapped all of our pictures and then afterwards they used a machete and cut up some pineapple for us. BEST TREAT EVER!!!!6NK1dloxSTes77m2V8239g

After we finished zipping and eating our pineapple we made it back home to chill for a bit. I changed into a swimsuit and clean clothes and then made my way out to the hammock. Well guess who was looking for me to say good bye… Yup you guessed the cabin neighbor with the whack ass girlfriend. He said bye to my mom instead because he couldn’t find me. Him and his girlfriend were walking out together with their bags. My mom being super petty goes “Oh Khrys is in the hammock.” She said he looked over for me and the girl just gave a tight smile and “uh ok”  I CAN NOT STOP LAUGHING!!!! Girl bye and to your cutie pie of a boyfriend “Honey I hope you find a WOMAN that enjoys everything there is about you and that will invite your sense of adventure into their lives so they can have something AMAZING to share with you.” Aiight now that thats out the way lets get back to regular programming

So we called a taxi to take us to pick up our dirt buggy. Its called a UTV but that sounds like some kind of STD so I’m just going to call it a dirt buggy. We went to get our buggy because our hosts got it for us for a decent price… cheaper than a car because insurance on a car out RIDICULOUS!!! We get to the place and everything is good until he says “There is a 1000 dollar deposit” EXCUSE THE FUCK OUT OF ME!!! WHAT did you just say??? No No No NOOOOO HELL NO!!! I grabbed all my things and told him “Thats not going to happen. First of all because we were not told about a 1000 dollar deposit and second because who the hell has that kind of money to put down on a dirt buggy?!?!?! No Im sorry but you are going to keep that buggy.” He goes “You have to put deposit when you rent car no matter where you go.” I was like “Yeh but not a thousand fucking dollars!!! Have you lost your mind??!?!?!?! I could understand if I was renting the damn thing for 10 days but Im not putting that money down for 2 days. Screw that.” He just looked at me and the poor clerk didn’t know what to do. She just sat and watched us exchange words. He said “Ok ok. I make it 500” I told him I could do that but that I BETTER get my money back!!! He assured me the I would get my money back. I better or there will be HELL to pay do you hear me?!?!?!?!? So we were walked to our buggy and the little dirty dude showed us how everything worked. We hopped in, buckled up, turned on the car and FOOLERY BEGAN!!! skkkFWJ1T5+wo4+1NH%TDg

BAY-BAY when I tell you I felt like a freaking road warrior… an inept warrior but a warrior none the less. It takes some getting used to. The breaks work but really all you have to do is just take your foot of the gas and the car stops moving. Learned that by surprise when trying to slow down a little bit. Also learned that they move pretty fast. I was like granny behind the wheel going like 40 mph because there is no speed limit and I wasnt sure exactly how fast the thing could go!!! Like will it blow up or fall apart if I push the gas all the way down?? Its noisy as hell and not a smooth ride but it gets the job DONE when ridding on the beaches and rocky areas. It is so much fun to drive!!! We made it home around 430ish?? Why were we sleep by 530p?!?!?! Y’all I mean like KNOCKED.OUT!!! The sun and zipping took it out of us y’all. We didn’t even eat dinner. We sat in our room and ate Cheetos and then CRASHED!!! HAPPY DAY TO US!!! Wonder what the next adventure will be for the Khrys and Doris’ great adventure tales!!! Stay tuned to find out
