    A few rugby teamates just went out and cleared the hardware store of all their tarps and a few gallos of dishsoap. Tomorrow is going to be awesome

    I live about 30min from travis p's house, that slip n bleed looks 10x worse in person, it is was steeper then it seems and you can get seriously hurt. Needless to say I stay at the bottom and watch, haha.

    It was fun! We only made it half as long as we wanted due to an error in thought that lead to a hilarious solution.

    So we roll out the first 150 ft of plastic and realize, you guys don't have hose spigots outside? Our solution was duct taping a hose around the end of the kitchen sink faucet, which ended up getting just enough water to the slide and flooding the kitchen. It didn't matter we were all in double digit beers at that point :)

    We had an underwear slip and slide party with their two neighbors...it was a good time!

    I've done one of those long slip and slides before...what a bad idea that was...100x5 or so tarp from the patio to a 3 ft drop over some rocks into a shallow part of the lake

    Ours was also known as the slip and die

    I don't think anyone was able to stay on the tarp but we had such massive amounts of soap and water that you continued to slide if you went off course
