    Lol. That was 14 years ago, pre kids, 3 houses ago. It was Kentucky blue grass, I believe. I did lay it. And it was indeed incredible. It wont make it through the summer in Ocala though.

    Added a 160ft zipline. Starts 17ft high over there above my truck. Bought a professional climbing trolley.

    That was a pain in the ass to put up by myself. Had to hook up my 2 ton hand winch to pull that slack out of that sucker.

    How much do you think that whole zipline project cost?

    Close enough.

    $65 for 250ft aircraft grade cable
    $38 for trolley
    $20 for the disc seat/rope
    $10 for cable clamps
    $25 for emergency spring compression brake

    I checked out those “zipline-kits-in-a-box” and those things are junk and were more expensive.
