    Does anyone have any good Shellback or Golden Dragon stories?  I've been through both and they were relatively the same, except for the good ole firehose spray in the middle of winter in alaska, had to say that wasn't fun.

    Hi all - same ceremony but we were in shark infested waters on our way to Brazil in 1967.  We were all blindfolded and they told us that they were going to toss off the fantail but not to worry because they had a marksman on the cat walk who was watching our for sharks.  They then tied a rope around our waist and two guys would grab us and toss us backwards but instead of landing in the ocean we landed in an inflated life raft and they aimed firehoses on us.  I do remember that they coated our bodies with bearing grease (used) it had black pigment in it and it took weeks to get it off - especially out of the bellie button.  Only three people on board could prove they had crossed before so they had their work cut out for them

    Hmm, I actually agree with this sentiment.

    im a polar bear and a golden dragon. i went into a whales belly. i pretended to be a t-rex at one point. it was good stuff.

    Polar bear is for crossing the arctic circle, which ive done like 10 times this year. We crossed the dateline WHILE in the arctic circle. double line crossing.

    its a good time, it brougt us together and it was something other than the norm for a few days.
