Today we went rappelling in the Mitzpe Ramon Crater, which is in the Negev Desert. 


This is the cliff we rappelled down.

Then we changed our underwear.

"Then we changed our underwear."

Since Dave is in Israel, would that make it holy s**t?

The only way I would rappel down something like that is if someone pushed me with one hand while holding a gun in the other. The scenery is beautiful though.

OMG, Dave is having a mid life crisis. Let's hope he doesn't end up with an earring.

The blue shirt should make it easier to find the body at the bottom of the ravine.

What cindy said. Plus a blindfold.

Now, now. We all have our bucket lists.

Pasta shells with ground bison, elk, and boar, in a cream sauce with morels and garlic scapes. Check.

Mitzpe Ramon is not the bass player and founding member of Kiss?

Fairly sure this is the sexiest Dave Barry picture in existence.

Omni. Go take your meds.

Something tells me that's gotta hurt.

And I'm not talking about the landing.

Dave is one head bump away from becoming a Honey Boo Boo and Kardashian fan.

Where are the camels?

I think Mitzpe Ramon is Hebrew for "you gotta be kidding."

Why is their a mega tall street lamp in the middle of the desert?

Obvious sign of immaturity.

I would have to change more than my underwear. I get nervous just looking at the picture

Yeah, that hard hat's going to help.

" Mitzpe Ramon " means what...? Death to humorists...?

Is that Wile E. Coyote in the bottom left?

I'm just glad Dave's not wearing a red shirt.

Welcome to Israel, Dave! Nice to know you're here. Hope you're enjoying it.

By the way, you can't see it in the photo, but it's not such a long drop...

And "mitzpe" means something like lookout, or point. Ramon is the name of the crater.

Whatever you do, refuse to stop and ask for directions during the rappelling.

Mitzpe Ramon is a bowl of pork broth with noodles and mitzpe.

Pork? Boar in cream? Are you forgetting where he is?

Good thing he wore the blue shirt. Even better that he wore the brown shorts.

"Rappelling we will go, rappelling we will go, hi-ho-the dairy-oh, rappelling we will NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!"

New mid-life crisis symptom? Usually it's a little red sports car and a younger wife, but Honey Boo Boo is going a little far.

I don't think that's a streetlight.
It seems to be a mini-UFO with an anchor out.

"Ramon is the name of the crater."

Well, at least there isn't a crater named Dave.



To the right of the light post is a new subdivision and mall.

What ever possessed you to want to do that? Nice picture thougb

I don't care what anyone else says. I am jealous. L'Chaim.

Uri - you'd prefer schmeat?

Actually ... schmeat ramen. We could have a product there. What was that restaurant that serves gourmet dirt?

I think Sam, Frodo, and Gollum are down there at the bottom of the cliff. Or possibly Sandpeople with banthas.
