My reasons why winter rocks
    #3664645 - 01/22/05 11:26 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

1. Ice climbing.
2. Snowball fights
3. Snow victims (formally known as snow angels)
4. Snow whores (formally known as snowmen)
5. I live in Florida.

(But I just got back from the snow yesterday, and am glad to say I live in Florida!) Chapped lips, face, and nuts the size of poppy seeds.

where do you go ice climbing in florida? :wink:
i dig it for bouldering (better friction) and the fact that the cold kills the bugs.

No ice climbing in florida. I'm talking like up north cold winter stuff. I should have been more specific.

Nah, bouldering in winter is good. keeps you cool and like you said better friction, no bugs.

I just got back from DC... went climbing on the FDR memorial (The big rock ones with all the waterfalls), and it was all frozen over so I decided to go mixed climbing the best I could. hahaha Bouldering on that was fun until we got kicked out.

My reason:

Getting paid $40 every 10-15 foot driveway, times 9, every time it snows.

Gotta love living around old people with money.

ice climbing on frozen waterfalls is a scarey adventure.  As you climb you can hear the flow of the water inside, and it almost gives you a feeling of drowning.  Secondly, ice is kinda unstable, and i've had my pick and crampons break out of hold more then one time each climb.  its deffinetly not for the faint of heart :laugh:

Love the avatar 8ball.. loved the movie..

Nothing but my trusty snowblower, I'm a trooper. I'd much rather have 75 degrees right now, it's -10F.
