SEAT BELT WEBBING,

Father in Law has a boat load of Seat belt webbing going.

About 10 reels @ ~150 to 180m long,
About 100 smaller reels @ 2.7m long,

Based in North Lakes, but i can fetch down to Peak District or arrange some sort of caver post.  I was thinking Brave Duck might like a reel for his already most excellent digging buckets.  Or divers wanting to fabricate bottle harnesses etc etc.

I currently have 3 x 180m rolls in the boot of the car in Sheffield.

1 is heading north to the dales by caverpost/TSG hut.  One is heading to Romily, and I'm sure I can spare you a couple of meters off the third reel.   :thumbsup:

Could I take a couple of small rolls please? Is anyone heading down to the Forest of Dean or S Wales able to help with Caverpost?

No hurry, project is closed for the winter.

Yep - still plenty.  I have one long roll at home at the moment - though that might be going down to the FOD.

The rest is in North West Cumbria.  How much are you wanting?

Hucklow Digging Supplies has stock if anyone in the Peak needs some but doesn't want to have to take a full roll.

I'll happily do that - and I'm very grateful for your offer. But can't we organise caver post? I'm up for the challenge of organising that, if you're also up for it!

Are you (or any of your mates) going to the BCA conference this coming weekend? I can't make it but I know loads of folk from round here who will be there.

Perhaps we'd ought to continue this by PM now - let me know if there are possibilities as above. I'll do the legwork, if you can just tell me someone who is going to be on Mendip this coming weekend.

I'll find out if there are any left.

My parents in law moved house recently and I'm not sure how many of them moved with them.

I'll let you know.
