Bob Miller Zips to 100
October 29, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us Monday, October 29, at 2 p.m. at Bays Mountain Park to celebrate longtime Kingsport resident Bob Miller’s 100th birthday!
Bob Miller first took to the skies in an open cockpit biplane at the age of 12. Just shy of eight decades later, he’s preparing to fly again—this time by zip line.
On his birthday for the past several years, Bob has donned a helmet and harness and climbed the 28-foot cargo net that leads to our Flying Squirrel zip line. Each year he’s broken his own record of oldest person to ride the zip line, but this October marks a momentous occasion.
Miller was born on October 29, 1918. That means that this month, when Miller flies once again down the 310-foot zip line, he’ll be ringing in his 100th birthday one year after Kingsport did!
We’ll cheer Bob on as he and a few other notable Kingsport citizens zip through the trees. Come out and celebrate with us.
