Rhino Twirley-Whirley, 16th March 2009
« on: March 18, 2009, 01:56:11 pm »
An exercise mission in exercise n inspection; went via Longwood Valley Sink to check on a lock (yes, it's still there) and then pronto'd to Rhino which was a tad muddy at the beginning but soon got airy once on rope; mild alarm and peril on the first traverse when a routine look-about just before launch onto the Y noted that my cowstail had decided to disconnect and download me but I thwarted its plan and soon reclipped and relaxed (see, it does happen!). Bouncy tigger to check the twirley-whirleys which weren't twirley-whirley and then pronto'd t'surface for suntan. It was just like old times as C&A Numpty only this time I was just a plain old normal Numpty. One day I'll become truly normal and the world will shudder in fear. Tick tock....

Dear cap'n chris,

I'm beginning to suspect you're not very tightly wrapped... :blink:

... whereas your avatar leads me to think that tight wrapping is commonplace for your good self :-)

Apparently the bolts in Rhino are so loose that they spin in their sockets; apparently this may or may not be true.

I have it on reliable authority that they aren't and they don't.
