“When tackling a squeeze it is important to inspect it first and note its general shape. Then consider which parts of the body are widest and enter in such a way that the broadest parts of the body fit into the widest part of the passage. This technique, if combined with a wriggling action of the body, will be found to be very energetic and arduous. This is a sometimes painful — but always effective — method of making progress.” The house | The dinner | Thermal pool | Expedition One | Expedition Two | Charades etc | Movies
Chapter 6: Yarrangobilly charades etc
This part requires little explanation. The second dinner was quite eventful, in that we appeared to take a little longer to wade through the mountain of food and drink. However, towards the end of the nosh-up, it was proposed to hold a game of charades in the front room.
Whilst many had not played before, or so long ago that the rules were fuzzy, the idea was warmly embraced by all but the port and cigar group. It was a no-holds barred event, with some cruel and punishing tactics from both sides.
Chief strategists on each team worked hard to keep participants well-focused, but our eyes gradually became blurry as the evening progressed. Many memorable moves were made, and it's certain that signature moves like the 'whale' and the 'nerd' will be used to great effect — next time!
We squeezed in some time in Tumut on the way home, which explains the last few shots. What a weekend! (on to the movies...)
