Ziplining for 80th birthday

Posted: Updated:

MINOCQUA (WKOW) -- 80 is a pretty big birthday to celebrate. And one woman decided to celebrate it by doing something adventurous with her family. Linda Watkins turns 80 this month and she always likes celebrating her birthdays in big ways.

So with her kids, grandkids, and even great-grandkids, Watson met her family in Minocqua to go ziplining. Even though she had a blast doing it, she said the best part was spending time with the family.

"Well we don't get together, all of us, very often," Watson said. "This was amazing that everybody did get together here." 

Her kids and grandkids said she was a natural out there. There weren't any problems and she had an excellent time. 

"Ziplining, I don't know how many 80-year-olds have ever ziplined," said one of her kids. "Watching her face as she came down this last one, she was having a blast. She's a really special lady, that's for sure."
