"There is no coming to consciousness without pain"
Well, I just got here. That's not really true anymore, but all this still feels new and exploration-worthy to me.
I'm not really good with this whole 'talk about myself' affair, so if you'd want to know what, why and how I got into all of this, please read the story of my personal ascension.
I definitely seem to have developed a passion for body suspension. And because this community seems to be THE place to be to live that passion, I decided to join your little world here. I want to learn as much as I can about it.
No Forum - but I like getting messages. And don't be afraid of the tracking thingie; it doesn't bite.

I still need to write down the second part of my Tonsai suspension trip. But I somehow never seem to have the time Well, one day, in the hopefully not-too distant future!
Anyway, an Australian guy visiting Tonsai for some climbing fun met Stanislav at his bar and somehow did a FreeFall suspension while there. Actually, this was his first ever body suspension. That definitely takes something!
He wrote a very interesting blog entry about it which you can read about here: http://bucketlistnomad.com/body-piercing-bungee-jump/ (be sure to check out the video - it's really worth watching).
Also, in a prior post on his blog he goes about what makes Tonsai so special: http://bucketlistnomad.com/tonsai-beach-thailand/. He's so very right.

I love sunsets. And while this isn't Southern California with its spectacular sunsets over the ocean, at least I can enjoy the sun setting over the mountains while having fun of the off-leash kind with doggie who sure loves her evening outings.
Daily routine has us back, and besides work and enjoying those long walks/bike rides with Jorda, there's not much room left in the days for anything else.
Canceled the trip to DC I wanted to go on this weekend to visit my Canadian friend (we have three long weekends this month thanks to holidays!). I spent a bit too much money lately (last months cc bill was almost $5k!) and just need to take it easy there for a bit.

or so they say. My body obviously didn't want to let me get up again after only 4 hours of sleep and decided I had to sleep in. So when I woke up at 9:30, my flight was GONE. Since two hours.
So, had to discover that my ticket couldn't be changed and all later flights were fully booked. Oh, and they wanted $2,500 for a walk-up fare. Yeah, as if... So called AA, and lo and behold, they managed to find an award seat in first class. To New York. So, now, 50,000 miles and $388 in 'taxes' later (fuck BA YQ and UK APD!) I'm on my merry way. Will arrive in PHL at 10:00 pm. Hopefully the party won't have died down by then!
Typing this from the first class lounge in Heathrow which has become something of a second home so much time I spent in here lately.
Keep the drinks cool for me, and see you later!

before I have to get up, get to the airport and take a flight to Philadelphia. To see all of you at Stay Calm. So, see y'all tomorrow!
Just got back from my California trip yesterday. Coachella was epic, like always, and we pretty much have decided to go for both weekends from here on out.

Not in the correct chronological order, but, hey... I have the time for a few sentences and linking to a video. I don't have the time to sort through and resize dozens of pictures and then write something meaningful about it, so I'll only get to my second Thailand experience this weekend.
Filmed by the Third Eye Perception guys at the post-2013 Dallas Suscon 'BackyardCon' afterparty, held at a friends' of Matt Brawley's house in a Dallas suburb. I had a perfect experience on a breattiful day-thanks everybody involved. Especially you-know-who for the foot massage .
No idea why the embed option apparently doesn't support starting at the 4:27 time I set. Anyway, that's when "LawnCon" starts in the video. Actually, that's a good thing, and the reason why I'm not worried about being in it for everyone out on the internet to watch me hanging from hooks in my skin. Everyone watching this video for almost five minutes before I finally appear must be interested in the topic enough to not just stop or skip, so I feel reasonably safe from being 'outed' by it. (remember, outside of this community nobody knows about this passion of mine).
