KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – The oldest person to zipline at Bays Mountain Park celebrated his own record Saturday.

98-year-old, Bob Miller from Kingsport set the record last year and Saturday he came out again to celebrate his birthday. He graced the 310 foot zip line and challenged city officials to a day full of adventure.

Miller’s been living in Kingsport since 1948 and now calls the Asbury Place senior living center home. He loves hiking and can’t get enough of the great outdoors.

“It was great fun, I like flying through the air and one of my bucket lists is to fly in as many different kind of aircraft as I can. I’m in a class by myself and I don’t think I’ll have anybody joining it anytime soon,” Miller said.

Miller jokingly said he’ll be back next year as long as he can still climb the cargo net to the top.
