April is for Zip Lining in Vermont
Vermont, as many are unaware, has a few extra seasons in its calendar year. Along with winter/spring/summer/fall, there is mud season (after the snow melts), at which point blackfly season carries us into spring when, come summer, dearfly season tacks onto blackfly season, which then compounds with mosquito season. For all you poor earth-bound humans, the inescapable presence of these biting, bothersome pests could be the bane of your vacation in Vermont’s otherwise perfect summer clime. But wait! Fear not! ArborTrek offers an alternative to simply suffering through another family outing in the woods! You’ll be pleased to find out that those infuriating little beasts just don’t have the wherewithal to FIND us up in the treetops. For some reason, mosquitos, blackflies and deerflies just do not inhabit the forest canopy. It’s brilliant. It’s amazing. Come fly with us!
And thanks to everyone who made suggestions for a collective noun for zippers! Among the best were…..
- A hum of zippers
- A folly of zippers
- A quivering of zippers
- An exuberance of zippers
- A swiftness of zippers
- A flight of zippers
(p.s. the collective noun for mosquitos is “scourge”. Perfect, no?)
