    I went ziplining over the weekend and had an E-M5 strapped around my body the whole time. It was a great time and a good opportunity for some unique pictures. A few are below, with more about it and more pictures on my blog. I hope you enjoy!

    I've never been ziplining, how do you stop? I'm just thinking that landing in KSOs might hurt like a b*ch...

    First off... I love my five fingers, all 3 pair! Stopping is easy. They give you thick gloves and you just put a hand on the one wire and pull down. Very effective.

    It was a great time.

    Just a hobbyist.

    Great shots.

    Have to ask - the shoes... are they more useful/comfortable than standard outdoor slip-ons?

    The shoes are my favorite things to wear now. I have 3 pair, the Classics, TrekSports and the KomodoSpors LS. I do everything from light biking, walking, running, cross fit and weight lifting exercising to just wearing them out. Once you get used to them, it's like wearing nothing at all.
