WHY WE ROGUE (A COMMUNITY RESPONDS)

WHY WE ROGUE (A COMMUNITY RESPONDS)

July 15, 2016

We asked our community why they felt drawn to the Rogues Den, our insiders team room for those that the Rogue mindset, here are some of our favourite responses.

 I'm here to expand my comfort zone. Every man dies but not every man truly lives. Since I met Logan I've jumped out of 2 airplanes and started section-hiking the Appalachian Trail.

 Looking for and found a way to bridge the gap. I never served as I was too fat and lazy. I've never met a better group of people. I'm able to be myself and offer any insight I may have while learning more and more.

-Brad Raymo

 In the last several years I've undergone a change of perspective. The things that are important, and what I want to do in life. In order to accomplish my goals I've needed to identify resources and being included in this community is part of that. 
I train for life. The life I'm living, and the life I want. That means learning skill sets, and mindsets that will serve me. I believe the knowledge I'm looking for resides here.

Personally I enjoy this group for the non bs factor and ability for members to disagree appropriately and provide honest feedback.. Plus the fun shit

-Rob Larson

 To go rogue is about living life not just being "alive" . It is being different to the rest of the herd, willing to get up of my ass and live, to seek out adventure , to learn and better myself.

It's 0300. I just spent an hour alternating between the pool and hot tub at the Lodge in Callaway Gardens. The rest of the guests hit the racks hours ago and few will rally at 0600 with me. This is my first time at Callaway and I will probably not make it back for another 40 years. Why waste time in bed. Drink Jack, Crown, hit the hot tub, then share ridiculous roguery.

-Mike Lancaster

Going rogue is like a route you travel that others may consider impassable or treacherous, and although there's an easier route that would surely get you to your destination, the rouge route will too. The difference is, the way of the rogue will have scenery, some laughs, cause you to break a sweat, and maybe even scare you a little. The other route, well, it's just boring, and no one ever talks about boring.

Death by 1000 Cuts
Death by 1000 Cuts

March 08, 2019

In roughly 900 CE until its outlaw in 1905, the Chinese developed a method of execution called Lingchi.  This form of execution served as torture, public embarrassment, and punishment that continued well after death.  The practice was reserved for severe crimes -  treason, patricide/matricide, and mass murder.  Its continued use is reported through the Vietnam War, even after it was outlawed several years earlier.  While it may conjure images of just 1,000 cuts, the practice of Lingchi was a brutal and drawn-out process.  Executioners would deliver justice through a series of cuts to the skin, removing pieces of flesh intended to see how many cuts a person could withstand before dying.  The practice was generally followed by amputation, a stab to the heart, or decapitation.

Several months ago I was sent a few pairs of glasses from Epoch by a friend.  He asked only for my honest opinion and evaluation.  In the ensuing months I traveled to a few countries, more than a handful of states, and took on several work sets from relaxed to professional attire needs.

HDT had a huge impact on me when I was younger and still at times whispers in my ear when I'm looking for that solution that seems untenable at best and precarious more often than not.  His writing when I first encountered it was sophisticated yet obviously simple.  I longed to rebel and move to a cabin on a pond to stand against the encroachment of law to the wilds of man.  Long lasting echos of simplification still encroach on my life some twenty-two years past when I enlisted for the most conforming process possible for a seventeen year old boy.
