WorldWide Drilling Resource

14 SEPTEMBER 2021 WorldWide Drilling Resource ® Through the Back Door! by Jim Kuebelbeck The fear of ridicule is a common human trait. No one wants to be laughed at or subjected to any level of derision. It is simply a part of our human nature. How well I remember the words of my late father saying to me, “Jim, I'm not going to tell you what to do or what not to do. I know you can somehow sense the presence of underground water sources, and I don't have any credible explanation for how you are able to do this. And I know you get a lot of personal satisfaction out of being able to locate good water wells in areas where only dry holes have been previously drilled. But, Jim, people are kinda funny about things they don't understand, or what doesn't fit into their way of thinking. What you're doing is one of those things that people don't understand, me included. If you continue doing this, I'm sure you're going to have to put up with a lot of unwanted ridicule and skepticism along the way. No one wants to be ridiculed for something they're doing, or have done, but in your situation, I guess it's up to you to decide if you're willing to put up with some of the ridicule you're likely to encounter because of what you're somehow able to do. Maybe you want to give this some serious thought.” If I had taken my father’s suggestion more seriously at the time, I could have avoided some of the ridicule I did encounter, but I guess I was too stubborn to heed his advice. Now, after locating hundreds of documented satisfactory water wells in areas where all previous efforts had failed, any kind of ridicule I might encounter in this regard no longer matters to me.
