teaching the world how to spell rappel, one status update at a time!

Oh man, looking at these pictures makes my toes start to tingle (right, Kathleen?!) but this was hands down one of the funnest things I've ever done in my life. Lando saw a youtube video of a rappel here and hasn't stopped talking about it. He made sure we had all the equipment, set everything up, walked me through it, and even used two ropes to make sure we were backed up. He's a champ. 

I'm a little bummed because I don't have any photos of me actually rappelling (curse of the designated photographer.) The only one I have is this first photo on top of the arch. Don't you worry though, moments after I was crying as I tied myself in and then yelled "WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?!" before I started even moving. I'm a champ.

You're a brave soul, Kate Line. Brave indeed.

I have butterflies in my stomach just looking at the arch yet alone thinking about dropping below it. Weren't you FREAKED when you were climbing up it? #scaredofheights

Does your mom read your blog?
Are you trying to send her over the edge?!
Serious toe tingling lady!
p.s.
in college, when I was only slightly less mature, my roommates and I used the word rappel as code for "french kissing". we would say things to each other like, "so, did you guys go rappelling?" when we got home from dates. we thought we were so cool. :)

I'm afraid of heights so I'm getting the sweats just looking at this. And in case you watch lame shows like I do, this is totally Bachelor date worthy. Props.

The first (and only time) I rapelled, I almost cried. I was that scared. Looking at this pics made my hands so sweaty!
