Reporter gone Tarzan: Zipping through Fairmount Park at Treetop Quest Philly

So, full disclosure, I found myself driving to 51 Chamounix Drive (the location of Treetop Quest) for the preview tour yesterday with a mixture of foreshadowed dread and acrophobia-fueled heebie-jeebies lining my stomach. Picking up an iced coffee along the way did not soothe my predicament.

    Reporter gone Tarzan: Zipping through Fairmount Park at Treetop Quest Philly
    When I started my position as a reporter for Billy Penn, I came in with a rudimentary understanding of what was expected of me. Quick turnaround, strong writing skills, social media chops, the ability to understand Philadelphians - or deal with them, anyway - and if need be, the will to eat a plethora of tacos during a 10k were among some of the requirements.
