Thanks Harry, yes finally done it. Don't know about the three but certainly going to try and get the Huntsman and the River Cruiser finished or at least on the water.

Last year when my wife took early retirement through redundancy one of her leaving presents was an indoor climbing experience for two.
Tomorrow we are booked in at the Harrogate climbing centre  %%  before it and or we expire

The climbing was very good today and my wife did quite well.
Aching already but thoroughly enjoyed it and I'm going to pursue this as a fitness hobby.
Signed up with the Depot in Leeds, Gelderd road is the only one that has top & lead rope climbing as well as bouldering.
I need three £30 courses to qualify for unsupervised rope climbing after which I can go for as little as £6 per visit or less with membership plans and as over 60 concession

I feel like a car crash this morning  {-)


A friend on a social group replied
ďWe have an indoor climbing facility in our house that enables us to reach our bedroom on the first floor. We had it installed when the house was first built and itís certainly provided us with excellent exercise over the years. I think the manufacturers name was "Stairs".Ē

Working on the basis that when you get to 65, stairs is best for down while lifts and escalators is for up, we bought a bungalow. No brainer (which is probably as well....).

It was a good laugh tonight and me and wifey both got signed off enough to get a pass on one more lesson.
This is so funny https://youtu.be/V9hsWjA3SmU


P.S. I guess the Proxxon is a winner then  :-))

Feels a bit cheeky to say really being retired but I'm on holiday  {-)  as if every day isn't  8)
London for a good while. Hopefully come back full of modelling withdrawal symptoms.
Hopefully on Monday I'll be getting this but no point blogging it as this is one of a couple of superb existing ones

Nice one Andy,

This will be an interesting build having seen the quality of your Shannon adventure...

Are you going to build as a pristine showroom example  or an old worn workhorse?

And a build blog... - I speak for myself (and I guess many others) yes please to a full build blog

PS - give the wheelie bin lid a clean :)

I'm the crisp and colourful type  O0
The blogs are great as they stray well away from the box lid and the benefit opens up so many more options

A view from Crystal Palace shopping area
Centre stage is the Telephone.
I believe this has a viewing platform and where we are headed today


EDIT. Walkie talkie not telephone  {-)

Sorry Andy I am lost....is this the City of London in the far distant foreground?........ I do not recognize any new building landmarks like the Wheel


Crystal Palace was I thought a pre WW1 cast iron framed glass paneled arena complex? ................... Derek

Andy,

Great shot - looks more like the streets of San Francisco

Enjoy the big smoke

London is much bigger than this view allows
The wheel is out of shot
The tall pointed building is the shard
Crystal Palace is the site of a park and the grounds of where the exhibition centre was before its destruction
Today itís the site of the BBC transmitter tower and equally famous for the mast

This is where I grew up. Thereís an old Victorian station underground there and occasionally they open it up to the public to view
