Videos from Vermont... Check Out the Action!

We've returned from our fabulous Vermont adventure (and are still savoring the fun!). Here's a peek at Carol and I in action the past few days at the Essex in Burlington...

My Segway trip through the park near Lake Champlain, what a great way to enjoy a fantastic day in beautiful downtown Burlington Vt.

Carol rope climbing and making her way to the top platform at Northern Lights (no easy task!)

Carol takes a break and bursts out laughing – she is so happy to be back on stable ground (42 feet in the air on a platform, that is)!

Then it was on to the next part of the adventure, where Carol took her first zip line to the base.

Lori makes her way to the top on the ropes while posing for photos for Charlie King, the summer resident photographer at The Essex.


  1. What a wonderful adventure I had with Lori this past weekend! I was especially thrilled with the ropes course/ziplining at Northern Lights. As a cancer survivor, it was so empowering to attempt something that was beyond what was believed to be my physical capabilities... and succeed! As you can see, I'm not the "athletic" type, yet the instructors were so safety-conscious and encouraging, I felt totally comfortable and willing to try anything. What they offer at Northern Lights should be considered a public service... I encourage all cancer survivors to take off your wig, put on a helmet, and change your perception of yourself.

  2. Carol - I am so glad you had a positive experience on the VT Green Mtn Getaway tour preview and that you are willing to share your personal story with Tomgirl's BLOG friends. Thank you for coming along and showing us your determined and positive approach to life and how that keeps you going back to fill up that "Life Savor" list you created. We look forward to seeing you on many of our future tours!
