Rodeo is one of the few applied sports. In it, real men demonstrate the skills that a cowboy needs in everyday work. The only exception is riding a bull.
While traveling through the Australian outback – the outback – we were endlessly bothered by minor troubles: either the radiator was boiling, or the wheels were breaking. However, the wheels in this area are the same consumables as water, and several reserves are a necessary attribute of any trip. The prospect of staying with punctured wheels in a deserted desert at a temperature of + 50 ° C is not a pleasant one: in huge spaces only occasionally there are single farms. We stopped by one – ask about the wheels (we already used our spare wheel), spend the night and get water. John, the owner of the farm, turned out to be the cutest person.

In a long list of phobias, many of which nature has generously endowed with man, there is one called fear of heights.
