Why They Hate Us: We do impossible “Bleeping Shit” for fun!:

What can I say. I grew up in a small farm town middle of nowhere. Dad was a Farm Kid. On The Farm you do what it takes to make it work. I was working at 7 years old (“Laws” against it be damned and I’m happy for that. I was then, too.)

What is it about a rural “Get ‘er Done!” society? Well, first off, we do shit others just can’t do.

Here’s an example. Show me one pantie waste City Brat who has a clue WT? this here is all about. “Woman Down” in mud, and it is FUN for all of us:

Yeah. Red Necks out doing shit with some trucks. Why? Because we gotta know where’s the edge. Or just a little beyond it. They want me to sit at home and be in FEAR of some BUG that will give me SNIFFLES? OMG the stupid is strong in them. I want to be 45 degrees up a rock wall about to be turned into Mammal Soup in an overturn over a 2000 foot canyon drop just because it make me feel alive! and the stupid idiots think I’m going to be AFRAID of SNIFFLES?

Just OMG the Stupid Is Strong in them.

Oh, and BTW, nobody cares what the Hell you look like. Black, White, Asian, whatever. ALL that matters is “YOU got the juice?” Are you, too, an adrenaline junkie? Y’all come on in and hit the throttle.

How do I know? ‘Cause I been there and done that and one guy who was lauded was an Asian Guy who could ‘get it done… and my Black Buddy was dope on 2 wheels, more than me. I ADMIRED them both for what they had. Look at Pro Football and Basketball. A whole lot of white audience admiring black abilities (and making the athletes rich in the process)

Oh, and notice that the Red Neck Babes are also cool in the face of shit? It isn’t all a Guy Thing. Hell, that one woman who baled with her baby? BABY on a Rock Climb at Midnight? ONLY Then did she bale? Just OMG there’s something different about us…

We, the Red Necks of the world, seek out trouble, adversity, and the impossible FOR FUN. Think about it.

    You taking bets on La Palma yet?

    @John S Howard Jr.:

    No, not yet. Could not book a cabin close to it to observe and properly set the betting line 8-0

    Does taking half a plane ride count?
    If you like roller-coaster rides, go do a parachute jump – great fun, lots of adrenaline and nowhere for it to go after the ‘chute opens.
    Best fun you can have with your clothes on.

    Jumping out of a perfectly good airplane doesn’t sound like the kind of fun I enjoy.. Now flying that airplane does.. .pg

    Particularly if there’s no one left to fly it. Somebody has to stay back with the ride. 😜

    @Kneel:

    I done that… a few times… (slow learner? ;-)

    I had no idea I could make that much adrenaline… I was jazzed and “runners high” for a couple of days…

    @PG:

    Both are fun, but very different. Landing a glider is a hoot. One try only…

    Do they make jump suits that have a velcro flap over the behind? Might come in handy right about the time of that first step… Just asking for a friend.

    On a more serious note, I did quite a lot of rock climbing and vertical caving (rappel down and ascenders up) a couple decades back. Oh, and of course the horizontal crawling through tight tunnels where you have to exhale and push through tight places. As EM has said, you don’t know where the (psychological as well as tangible) cliff is until you are standing at the edge, or maybe one step past. Good times!!

    I did quite a lot of rock climbing and vertical caving […] a couple decades back. Oh, and of course the horizontal crawling through tight tunnels where you have to exhale and push through tight places.

    Uh, huh. That’s exhaling after you’ve doffed your helmet & attached lamp, with your helmet then blocking your only lighted view of whatever’s in front of you. Including the innocent bats who’d suspended themselves from that tight passage’s ceiling.

    I decided early on that I’d limit myself to horizontal caving.
    I just don’t like rappelling: My college caving grotto [▽] did a membership-publicity rappel by members from the roof of a 13-story campus building. I decided, about hal-way down, that I really did not like the continual creaking sound of a caving/climbing rope under load (i.e., me! ). That doesn’t mean I refused opportunities for free climbs free descents thro’ crevices. Even when coatings of wet-or-dripping cave mud required more-than-usual caution.

    Caving ropes need to be washed after nearly every use, because natural grit, esp. fine-grained cave-mud, can ruin a rope from inside. It’s a practical safety requirement that’s detested by rural coin laundries thro’out eastern U.S. “cave country”.

    I certainly admire vertical cavers. Some even branch out into extreme related pursuits: Bounce-trips into the deep pits in Central America known as sotanos. By “deep”,  I mean on the order of 1000–1200 ft.  For teams with the rappelling & ascending skills & resources required to undertake such expeditions, the greatest potential danger might be their selection of local resident(s) to serve as surface/rim guard(s) for the rope [⍗].

    ——–
    Note ▽ :  A caving grotto is a local caving club that’s officially affiliated with the national educational-&-scientific organization: The National Speleological Soc’y (NSS). No balls of string should ever be seen among the members.

    Note ⍗ :  Not the usual order to vendors of caving rope. Continuous, no splices. Unlike for mountaineering rope, you want to minimize stretchability.

    @Compu Gator: Just on a guess, were you a member of the Florida Speleological Society in Gainesville? I was active in the grotto back in the 1990s. That is some of my old stomping grounds. The absolutely most exhausting trip I ever took was to the back section of Warren Cave near San Felasco Hammock. At the time, I think it had been 8 years since any other group had gone there. No one who had been there in the past was willing to go there again, so we were limited to verbal descriptions of passages and a hand drawn map. Got temporarily stuck at one point. By the time we exited I had so many bruises I looked like I had been beaten with nightsticks. Amazing what we do for fun!

    Unfortunately, California where I grew up was lacking significant caves. I did go down into a giant lava tube on the Oregon Border, but it was a tourist spot with stairs and such, until you reached where the ice (in summer!) was covering them… Ice level would vary depending on the decade long changes of rain and cold.
    https://www.nps.gov/labe/index.htm
    https://www.usgs.gov/volcanoes/medicine-lake/lava-tubes-lava-beds-national-monument

    Other than that, the only other “fun” bit was a local abandoned missile base… You can buy them now if you like, but removing all the lead paint costs a lot… Still, lots of long tunnels to explore. Eventually the police were dispatched to make it a no go area ’cause too many kids were enjoying it…

  11. The True Nolan says:

    @EM: Having spent most of my life east of the Rockies, I never had the chance to go into a lava cave. I almost got into one out in Idaho, but scheduling did not allow it. I see now that there is a lava cave in Hawaii that is over 40 miles long. .
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kazumura_Cave
    GASP! I remember when the longest known lava cave was maybe a couple of miles in length — but people keep looking. As for California “lacking significant caves”, it is true that there is not the concentration you find in the South East US — but there are still some good ones, and I suspect that if you joined a grotto there you would find out about a lot more not generally known to the public. Arizona is somewhat famous for having caves which are not publicly known. Perhaps not a bad idea, especially in areas that are desert or simply very dry, any damage done to a cave there will last for centuries, maybe millennia. It has been a long time, but I seem to remember one Arizona Grotto whose motto was “Arizona has no caves. To speak of.”
