Things That Are Bothering You, Got You All Hibbeldy-Jibbeldy, or just downright pissed, RIGHT NOW! - Page 5579

For the most part, it is pretty good exercise. It is much more engaging than normal gym time...I'd never have a membership to a normal gym, but climbing keeps me coming back. There's a problem solving aspect to it as well--once you get to the harder stuff, you can't just muscle your way up and you need to figure out the right technique tricks to make it past the tricky spots.

Always new routes being set up, and harder difficulties to work towards. And if you want to climb outdoor stuff, which is super fun, your options are pretty limited if you don't do at least some level of training.

Also, a lot of good looking climber chicks in tight pants. Unlike a normal gym, staring at someone while they are working on a problem is completely acceptable (and if you are belaying them...required).

Belayin' them, or trying to, being some dudes' prime motivation for membership.

Just like me and ZUMBA.

Here I am hanging under a steep overhanging section:


And here's my GF climbing Table Mountain in cape town:

(actually a very simple climb--anyone in good physical condition could hire a guide for a hundred bucks or whatever and do it)

And here's where you get to go:

Nice. I break up treadmill mindblanks with squash/boxing.

This gotsts the travel thing goin for it.

Of course, I have a longrunning tradition of talking about getting PADI certified for scuba and then not doing it. Can't mess with that.

We used to do a lot of lobster diving out of SB on the islands. The season coincided with the  Santa Anas . When those hills popped bright and sharp you best beat feet for the harbor

Santa Cruz Island is great. Haven't camped on the other Channel Islands (other than Catalina) yet, but want to.

I hate ear hair. It started growing there about two years ago. I've been plucking them out with some small Webster needle drivers instead of trimming them so they don't grow out and feel like that device that you scrub mud off of your shoes before you go inside. It's still a constant process.

I can't describe how much I hate ear hair. I get them on the inside of the tragus.
post #83684 of 85764
Maybe my story will help make y'alls have better feeling to you I have had a birthmark on the lobule and anti-tragus of my left ear since the time I was born of which those parts of my ear are browner than the rest of me and also bumps and grows hair of which I have to remove betimes. I'm gonna tell you what it is not easy to remove those hairs without causing bleeding aforethought.

Ear hair is unavoidable in your 70's. Just relax
