The Battle Begins

That’s right, you could be doing anything like mowing the yard, killing ants and bugs or even messing with your gear, but NO. She or he walks in on you and finds you visiting SummitPost.org. Crap, caught again.

In the words of the great Bob Sihler,“At home, you try to visit SP only when your spouse isn’t looking (hence the term SummitPorn), and when he or she catches you, you get that look just like the one the dog does after it pees on the couch and gets scolded for it.”

I have no interest in trying to recreate a great paragraph like that. (Thank you Robert.)

So the battle begins. Why are you on that stupid SummitPorn (note my spouse uses that phrase—she loved Bob’s article) when you could be doing the things I asked you? My reply: Uh, I duuno?

She: “There ought to be a law against that stupid site. You are always on it and you get nothing done.” Me: “I will go for a climb or a hike then.”

Fat chance buddy. You are in the hot seat and you aint getting off it that easy. 

Dancing with Crampons

Since joining SummitPost, I have met some WORLD Class People on the site and in person. I wrote an article that people got a kick out of and I have taken some fairly good photos. And I learned a new word, SummitPorn.

Additionally, I have had to re-learn everything from my military days like how to layer my clothing and pack my internal frame backpack with the proper essentials. And I have become addicted to gear. That’s right, another element of this sport that gets you addicted. That gear, oh I can’t contain myself. Just drop me off at REI or Benchmark and leave me. I will just shop all night long with a headlamp and sleep in one of the display tents on a 2.5 inch self-inflatable pad with a down zero-degree bag and eat mountain house for dinner.

And if you find millions of tiny little holes in the carpet the next morning, it’s because I tried on crampons and danced all night to the soundtrack of Saturday Night Fever.

Ok, back to the point. I am at work and my server won’t let me access Dingus Milktoast's page —it keeps calling it nudity. So I go to The Chief's page —blocked from that one because of profanity. Of course we can’t forget to mention the Kiefer Thomas famous self portrait that make company CIO’s cringe when they see it and hey, how do you explain to your wife that the Women of SummitPost's page album is important data that you are gathering for your next journey?

A new word for Wikipedia?

Pop ups? WE don’t need no stinking pop ups; our finger can click that mouse and open up Trip Reports, Articles, Pictures and have a conversation on the forums and PNP all at the same time

Well, maybe they have us after all. Say it isn’t so. PLEASE don’t outlaw SummitPorn. I don’t think I want to be in jail with some of the people on this site.

The following word and description will be submitted to Wikipedia:
“SummitPorn is the depiction of explicit mountaineering subject matter for the purpose of exciting the viewer. SummitPorn makes no claim to artistic merit, unlike erotica, which does.”

If a petition to outlaw SummitPorn crosses your path, rip it up, burn it, stuff it in your mouth and chew it up. I am certain that all NON SummitPost members who have a SummitPost Member in their house are pushing for this ban.

Meanwhile, did you know you can access SummitPost on your PDA phone like your Blackberry, Palm or iPhone?

Bow chica chica bow bow—what? Dang it, someone is coming—hurry, stuff it under the bed like the naughty book that it is. Oh, Hi Honey. She: “Oh don’t hi Honey me, you look guilty. Seriously? You have SP up on your Blackberry? I think its time we go find some professional help.

Rock on Brothers and Sisters!

This domain has not been registered. You could make almost zero dollars per day with this domain! You could even put in a redirect to the legit site of your choice... although I wouldn't be so brash as to suggest one.

Voted 10/10

I'm single and live alone. Only my 20 lb. cat, "The Duck" imposes on my SP reveries when he wants loving attention of which he can't get enough! I just got back the internet after losing it for the last week and I tell ya...! It took a little while to get used to not having it, especially SP! Actually it was a good experience. Gave me a chance to deepen my sense of meditation through the study of spiritual literature. At first I was like..."whaddam I gonna do now"?? But I relaxed and took it as welcome break.

I guess I do not have to worry about being caught, but I can imagine it does create a lot of problems for many people on this site. It is quiet addicting, and time spending site! But so much fun.

Thank you Liba! Yea probably doesn’t have the same effect if there is no significant other that it needs to be hidden from. ;-)

And the Grasshoppers, I am sure Dow was just being nice pinning it on "Dirty Old Men", it is very funny.

Thank you for you vote!

How about a good sexual orientation conversion tool? I need one of those. I want to be a hermaphrodite.

A few years back I had one of my trip reports featured on the front page. I was very excited and ran to get my wife.

"Hon, I'm on the front page of SummitPost!"

"Really?" She comes in and squints at the screen. "So, who's this 'boyblue'?

"Uh... that's me... my avatar..."

"You're kidding! So, how much did they pay you?"

"Err... nothing. I enjoyed doing it and the recognition is kind of fun..."

"Don't forget my parents are coming this afternoon. I thought you were going to help me clean the house."

I'm probably exaggerating a little, but that's kind of how I remember it...
I gotta admit that I probably react the same way when she talks about her Facebook stuff. :-)
