Introduction: How to Make a Backyard Zipline

I've got young kids, and we're constantly looking for fun things for them to do, and ways to keep them active (and burn off a crazy amount of energy). Our backyard is becoming an amusement park, and I love it!

We decided, quite a while back, that a zipline was in order and after lots of planning and over thinking it, I finally got around to making it. Turns out, the kids LOVE IT! Like, really really love it! Check out the video below to see how I made it, and some thoughts about it's versatility.
