At the end of "The Strip" lies Historic Downtown Branson. Situated to the East is Lake Taheycomo, looking more like a river than a lake.
It's a zip line!... but different than most. It has a chair-like seat attached to the cable. After finding out that Parakeet Pete's Waterfront Zipline is running a special for the day, unlimited rides all day long, I decide, Ah, what the heck... I'm in!
I'm wondering about this idea soon after I sit down, as I now notice there's no 3 point harness system, just a seat belt. I convince myself that their rig looks to be of a permanent nature, so I kick off my sandals, lose the hat (before I lose the hat), hand the camera over to the operators and ask if they wouldn't mind snapping a few.
They didn't mind at all! They were more than happy to accommodate and actually seemed to enjoy their "selfie-fest". I had such a good laugh that evening when I unloaded the pics from the camera.

Up and down, up and down, back and forth, back and forth. There was no one else in line, so I just kept riding until I had my fill.
