Zipadeedon't-Dad: Man Tries Out His New DIY Zipline

Retired outdoor education teacher Howard ‘Howie’ Manins loves to keep up with outdoor pursuits at his home in Te Horo, New Zealand. Daughter Jessica Manins recorded this video on June 15, as Howard tried out a new zipline he’d built in his garden. Howard pushed off on to the zipline from a perilously high ladder propped against a tree, before unceremoniously landing among some plants when his rope proved too slack. Undeterred, the gutsy 69-year-old laughed and pushed himself onwards on the line. Jessica told Storyful, “This was his 2nd attempt – he did more and also crashed. He’s a legend!” Credit: Jessica Manins via Storyful
