Embarrassing (or fun) Moments

67 posts in this topic

"Embarrassing" may not be right word because that implies that the person in question would be embarrassed. For our initial post, with the wild BS in motion, perhaps "proud" would be a better description.

In the middle of the large spa (Jacuzzi) was a raised platform that resembled a small stage like those in a strip joint (I was told :rolleyes: ). BS decided to give us a show. Putu Enjula was across the pool with her telephoto, but something tells me Bill wouldn't have minded a few close ups. Too bad the stills don't capture the hip motion in the first shot.

Some will go to extremes to get a good shot. Ron Gates wanted a pic of this large tree, and didn't even check for any of the several ant species that cover the rain forest floor.

Great photos, looks like everyone is having a fantastic time. I think a few of our IPS brothers need to pump some iron, or pull more weeds (Bill).

Lefty,

Perhaps there should be some forum guidelines pertaining to titilating bovine pics. But since no one had the forethought, I guess I have to let those ride. :)

Dean - That's what you get by setting the bar for this thread with initial pics of BS Man "entertaining". :mrlooney:

Bill - I hope there were ladies in that audience that you were entertaining... :hmm:

Whew! For a minute I was concerned that my man-boobs were showing in that hot tub photo. Luckily they are hidden from view. :unsure: This is a family friendly forum after all!

It takes quite a bit of energy to both enjoy the Biennial and moderate the Forum via laptop. Dean managed to sleep through the tire blowout and the other noise we were making on Bus #4. :rolleyes:

Yes, it was very ironic, like it came right out of a movie. The bar employees had a surprised, yet wry smile on their faces.

Ryan,

Great shot! :lol:

And about the tire blow-out - well, that's not exactly the whole truth. The tire blew out in the middle of nowhere and then we drove for another 6-7 miles until we arrived at that little village and the bar and THEN we stopped right there. What a coincidence...! :mrlooney:

Just in case no one got any video of the zip line activity from post #21 I'll post this movie of my wife doing it. She was in Costa Rica earlier this year. I've been sending her some pics from the biennial and she recognizes some of the places like the hanging bridges, the volcano, etc....

Ryan,

It appears as if I may have been a little easier to get in focus than some of the action shots. :winkie:

This was a fun moment that could have been embarrassing, but luckily Bill stayed on the log.

Here is half of the Louisiana group - Joe and Cindy Baucum and Jayanne Crawley. I could find Rod Gates, but I didn't think about looking under trees.
