Does a ropes guy ever stop being a ropes guy?

I feel like the most negligent blog owner, with ove a year since my last post. Since then, I’ve run a successful summer at camp, welcomed a new class of interns, served thousands of participants through a busy fall…

… and stopped being a ropes guy!
After 20 years wearing a harness professionally, I was asked by camp leadership to assume the role of Director of Operations. 
Don’t get me wrong, it’s an honor to be chosen for this role, and it’s stretching me in new ways. After taking people out of their comfort zones for two decades, it’s gotta be good for me, too. Right?
One of my biggest challenges is keeping myself from volunteering for too many spots where they need extra help at the zip line! 🙂
