Yeah, but she's a *****! sorry couldn't resist!


The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Anyone interested in being my helper?
I might be able to. Depends on if I have to go see my in-law this weekend. The wife is going to see them one way or the other, just don't know if i have to tag along.

I think I can talk the ol ball and chain into coming along. I have nothing to do. I'll bring some twinkies in case you get stuck down there. They won't ever go bad in case you are there for a long time.
What part of morning are we talking here?

Let me know if you can. You've already been to the mine I want to get into. Tiffin and Sultan. There's a deep incline shaft in both.

Everyone else is welcome to come along. There's plenty to see and do out there. Lots of trails to get lost on.

Hey, jerk! Stop throwing Twinkie's at me and go get help!

I usually leave around 10:00. That should get us there around 10:30. We should be back around 2 or 3. Later if you want. I just have to pick up someone by 4:00.

Here is a PM I received from one of the regulars to this thread. He can respond if he wants, but I'm going to leave his name out of the quote. I'll reply to this openly in case there are others who feel the same way. It was not AlexReid.

Quote:
Are you always an *******? This thread was way better before you came around! Who would want to go to trails just to watch your rope?!! This forum isn't here to serve you! If your going to invite people to go you should include them in all activities! Nobody would want to go just to stand around and watch you having fun!!!!!!
I didn't go back and check my initial post about this, but I'm pretty certain I did invite anyone with rope experience to head down with me. As explained to a previous person as to why I don't like to guide anyone without rope experience, it's a safety issue.

Rappeling is dangerous. The safest way for someone without experience to descend would be tethered to me. If you fell, there would be a good chance you'd pull me down with you.

If anyone wants to learn how to safely rappel, I don't mind showing you, but inside a mine isn't the place to train. I've already showed quite a few people how to rappel. The best way I know how to properly introduce someone is by anchoring rope to my bumper and rappeling down tailing piles outside of mines. When you get comfortable, we'll try taller and steeper tailing piles until the drops are vertical. It doesn't become safe when I say so. It becomes safe when you are comfortable. Even with years of experience there is an inherant danger.

In fact, I would love it if a few other people were into this just to keep it safe for everyone. I'd like to know that if I'm ever in trouble, but in a non-emergency, I'd have someone to back me up.

If anyone here needs help, but you don't feel 911 is required, I don't mind helping out. If you feel you might get into a situation like that, PM me for my phone number. All I ask in return is that you make yourself available in a similar situation.

Plans could change fast. I could wake up that day and not feel well enough to rope. If that's the case, we could just wagon train around a few trails in the area. In fact, after thinking about it more, the person I quoted previously may have a point. I don't mind ditching the roping plan so you guys don't have to stand around and wait for me to come up.

Lmao. I don't mind not going down into a hole. I would rather stay topside and look around while you go into holes. I have walkie talkies maybe they would work. I don't mind at all. Maybe I could pop a few rounds off into a hill while you look for bodies to loot. I have a shotgun that needs breaking in.
